- Powerful, efficient 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TFSI engines launched in Australia for all-new Audi A6 saloon
- Audi A6 2.0 TDI is the most fuel efficient vehicle in its segment
- Low fuel consumption and low emissions, combined with excellent performance signals strong future for 4-cylinder models
Audi Australia has introduced two brand new, ultra-efficient front-wheel-drive, 4-cylinder variants of its A6 business class sedan, once again proving that efficiency comes standard in any car bearing the four rings.
Joining the three existing V6-engined A6 variants, both the new petrol 2.0 TFSI and diesel 2.0 TDI are clear examples of Audi’s successful downsizing philosophy which sees large engine capacity replaced by smart forced induction techniques to achieve outstanding fuel consumption while maintaining performance and driving enjoyment.
However, increased efficiency does not come at the expense of the luxury, safety or technology expected of an Audi. The new A6 four-cylinder models are second to none for safety and offer a raft of cutting-edge driver assistance and infotainment technologies, including Audi’s MMI Navigation Plus with touchpad technology as standard on every model.
Audi A6 2.0 TDI
The most fuel-efficient engine in the new A6 is the 2.0 TDI. Almost entirely redeveloped, the four-cylinder unit generates 130 kW and puts out 380 Nm of torque between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm.
This combination of Audi’s proven TDI technology, in partnership with a seamless multitronic transmission and front-wheel-drive, results in outstanding fuel consumption of just 5.0 L/100km, and C02 emissions of just 132 g C02 per km. For all of this efficiency, the 0-100km/h sprint is still dispatched in only 8.2 seconds.
The turbocharger with adjustable vanes provides for spontaneous torque buildup at an early stage in the cycle. Excellent thermodynamics mean that the four-cylinder can run on a higher rate of recirculated, highly cooled exhaust gas, thus significantly reducing levels of untreated nitrogen oxide emissions.
