Audi A6 2011 Revealed

Okay, waiting is over, the new Audi A6 was officially presented with complete information and many photos. I know I wait with interest to see him, but I hope not expect much in terms of design.

The new A6 is as many of us felt, fresher, but who knows how different from the previous generation, and no different pattern from Audi yet. It looks good, that’s clear, but is composed of a mixture of lines and the typical Audi elements, that gives you the feeling that you’ve seen before. On several other Audi models. Is there a feeling that could be better, it’s not so much novelty as much as they should. It’s more finesse, but not enough news.

Audi relies entirely on the question given LED headlamps, which resemble those of the Audi A1 and taillights, all with LEDs, which are even more different than the previous generation. That’s because, viewed from the side, nothing new car at the line, compared to the model it replaces. Same field, same cuts to the back and shoulders car door.

The interior comes with the same kind of atmosphere, the only difference being mainly escamontabil display, positioned above the center console and not integrated into it. That feeling better ventilation of the center console controls, which is not as crowded. Partly because air conditioning controls, which occupy a smaller surface. I like the continuity between the dashboard and door faces the front.

Engines (two petrol and three turbodiesel, release date) are about the same, but more powerful and more economical, say the Germans. The economic engine is the 2-liter TDI that produces 177 horsepower. With this engine, the Audi A6 displays an official average fuel consumption of 4.9 litres/100 km.

Next, this chapter, 3-liter V6 TDI, offered in two versions of power: 204 hp and 245 hp, average consumption is 5.2 litres/100 km and 6 litres/100 km.

The smallest petrol engine is a 2.8-liter V6 that produces 204 hp and 280 Nm and is the most powerful TFSI’s 3-liter V6 that comes with 300 hp with a supercharger developed. With this engine, the Audi A6 accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 5.5 seconds and reaches 250 km / h, average consumption is 8.2 litres/100 km.

In order to replace the internal combustion engine in the coming years, the Volkswagen Group, through Audi plans to include, in addition to the Audi A8 Hybrid, a future model: the Hybrid Audi A6 that will be launched in 2012.

The A8 will be joined in 2012 by one of the lineage of the mark on the rings: the Audi A6 Hybrid 2012. Moreover, the German brand announced during the show the arrival of the Q5 crossover with a hybrid engine, but also various hybrid technologies in order to equip its entire current range by the end of the decade.
