2018 Audi A6 officially unveiled

2018 Audi A6 officially unveiled

Audi has gone ahead and officially revealed the 2018 Audi A6. First things first, the new car is larger than before and sportier as well thanks to the wide one-piece grille and sloping roofline. Short overhangs, sharp creases on the flanks and a flatter C-pillar further add to the effect. The new design is more aerodynamically efficient than before, with a drag coefficient of just 0.24. 

To make the car more agile, the new A6 has undergone significant weight reduction and now gets rear-wheel steering as standard. Not only does that reduce the turning circle but at higher speeds the rears turn in the same direction as the fronts for a more planted, stable feeling.

Audi has detailed two engines for the A6. The petrol powertrain is a turbocharged V6 making 335bhp and 500Nm, good for a 5.1-second sprint to 100kmph. It’s paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and puts the power to the road through a quattro all-wheel drive system. The 3.0-litre diesel option delivers 281bhp of power and 620Nm of torque, hooked up to an eight-speed automatic. 

It gets plenty of tech too like semi-autonomous driver assistance technology. The car will autonomously pull into or out of parking spaces and garages, while top-spec cars are equipped with five radars, five cameras, twelve ultrasonic sensors and a laser scanner.

The 2018 A6 will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show and should make its way on to Indian shores by the end of 2018.
