Audi A6L

The Audi A6L can deliver even more evidence of its innovative technological credentials. The MMI control system enables hassle-free operation of a wide range of functions such as a telephone, audio systems and navigation systems. Vehicle settings can also be adjusted easily. If the vehicle is fitted with the adaptive air suspension system, the customer can use the MMI to select a chassis tuning ranging from sporty to comfortable. If the driver does not make an selection, the vehicle level adapts itself continuously to the road and the speed of travel.

High-comfort equipment leaves nothing to be desired. MMI in the Chinese language, servotronic, a leather steering wheel and a light/rain sensor are just some examples of the extensive features that are provided as standard. Naturally the Audi A6L boasts the same comprehensive safety features as the standard saloon. These include a state-of-the-art ESP generation and head/front and side airbags. In the Euro NCAP crash test, the Audi A6 was awarded five stars, the highest possible rating.

During recent months, the Audi A6 has been presented with almost every award that a car can possibly win. Besides the title "World Car of the Year", it received the "Auto1" award, a major international automobile prize. Winterkorn remarked: "To us these awards are clear confirmation of our product strategy, namely: The best of all worlds."

At the unveiling of the A6L, Zhu Yanfeng, President of FAW Group, stressed: "In terms of sales, brand influence and customer satisfaction, during recent years the Audi A6 has left its competitors trailing." Some 200,000 Audi A6 cars have been built in China to date. According to Winterkorn, China is already the world's largest market for A6 saloons. Audi will surely set new standards with the A6L.

The Audi A6L, which will debut at the Shanghai Motor Show on 21 April, is to be launched on the Chinese market in the middle of the year.
