Audi has started testing the all-new A6 sedan in India. The model was unveiled at the Geneva motor show earlier this year.
The new A6 is 7mm longer, 12mm wider and 2mm taller than its predecessor. The wheelbase too, at 2,924mm, has increased by 12mm to aid back seat comfort.
Engine options likely to be introduced are the two 3.0-litre, turbocharged V6s from the Audi stable. The petrol TFSI makes 335hp and 500Nm of torque mated to a 7-speed S-Tronic automatic gearbox. The TDI diesel puts out 282hp and 620Nm of torque and is paired to an 8-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox.
Audi India will bring the A8 L to our market first, and then will follow up with the A6 sedan. When it arrives, the new Audi A6 will compete with the Mercedes-Benz E-class, BMW 5-series and Jaguar XF in the luxury sedan market.
