2015 Audi A6, A6 Avant and A6 AllroadSeptember 5th, 2014
Audi has released the details for its updated 2016 A6 range of vehicles: the A6 sedan, the A6 Avant wagon, and the rugged-looking A6 Allroad wagon. Updated with new engines and transmissions along with a new infotainment system and headlights, Audi has refreshed its entire line of vehicles built on the A6 platform.
The new models now show off Audi’s Singleframe grille along with optional headlights with either LED technology or Matrix LED technology combined with dynamic turn signals. Audi has also reworked numerous chassis components with aluminum and hot-shaped steel, reducing the vehicles weights and providing a comfortable ride. Some models are also fitted with glass fiber-reinforced polymer springs, which further reduce weight by nearly 10 pounds over traditional steel springs.
Inside, the vehicles can be fitted with Audi’s MMI infotainment and navigation system plus the MMI touch interface, which showcases the new power-retractable 8-inch display. The vehicles can also be fitted with an SIM card, providing and LTE hotspot along with new media streaming apps. Driver assist technology may also include adaptive cruise control, Audi side assist, Audi active lane assist, and a night vision assistant.
Under the hood, the A6 and A6 Avants can be equipped with one of three TFSI gasoline engines (ranging from 190hp to 333 hp) or five TDI units (150hp to 326hp). The engines are paired with either a six-speed manual transmission, or a seven- or eight-speed tiptronic automatic. Of course, not all engine and transmission options will be available in the United States. The vehicles will be available for ordering in Europe following the Paris Motor Show in October and we expect full specs for the U.S. market to follow after.
