Audi has launched the eagerly awaited all-new A6 saloon in India. Prices of the new saloon starts from Rs 37.7 lakh for the base 2-litre diesel variant, rising up to Rs 47 lakh for the 3-litre petrol variant (ex-showroom Delhi).
The all-new A6 is offered with four engine options. The base model gets a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel which puts out 175bhp and a 3.0-litre TDI churning out 242bhp. The two petrol motors are 2.8-litre FSI and 3.0-litre supercharged TFSI, developing 201bhp and 296bhp respectively.
The new Audi A6’s lavish interior is an appealing mix of curves and lines with great detailing and the wraparound dashboard looks terrific. The top-end A6 gets the Quattro four-wheel drive system and Audi’s seven-speed, S-tronic dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Audi is expecting to clock big numbers with its base diesel model as the base variants are a preferred choice among luxury car buyers who want to go in for a higher segment model but are also looking for affordability and low running costs. This is evident from the sales of the BMW 5-series where a major chunk of the numbers comes from the base 520d. Audi will hope to emulate this success with its entry level 2.0 TDI.
The new A6 2.0 TDI carries a price tag of Rs 37.7 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the 2.8 FSi is priced at Rs 39.9 lakh and the top-of-the-line 3.0 TFSI and 3.0 TDI are priced similarly at Rs 47 lakh and 46.95 lakh respectively. This has placed the A6 on par with its rivals.
