Audi A6 Saloon: New Engine and Transmission Variants
Source: Audi AG

The Audi A6 range has been extended with the addition of two new engine and transmission variants: the 177-bhp Audi A6 2.4 is now available with quattro permanent four-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual gearbox. And the Audi A6 3.0 TDI quattro can now also be ordered with a 6-speed gearbox. This means that there are eleven engine and transmission combinations for the A6 saloon, with power outputs ranging from 140 to 335 bhp - an unbeatable choice.

The quattro drive maintains outstanding traction and cornering stability, thus minimizing the effect of propulsive forces on the car's self-steering properties. This is a precondition of a high level of dynamic stability, supreme acceleration and very high cornering speeds. The performance data of the A6 2.4 quattro reflect this: with an output of 177 bhp (130 kW) and 230 Newton-metres of torque, the six-cylinder saloon accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.1 seconds. Its top speed is 230 kilometres per hour, and it has an average fuel consumption of 10.9 litres per 100 kilometres.

The Audi A6 3.0 TDI quattro with 6-speed manual gearbox delivers gusto with six gears. It takes just 7.1 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h, and goes on to achieve a top speed of 245 km/h. This top athlete is also notable for its low fuel consumption figure of 7.9 litres per 100 km (combined cycle).

The Audi A6 2.4 quattro with manual gearbox costs 36,200, and the Audi A6 3.0 TDI quattro with manual gearbox is priced at 41,600.
