Editorial Test Drive Review of Audi A6

The Audi A6 was launched in 2011 and set a new segment benchmark for its style, design and performance. Visually the new A6 resembles elder sibling A8 a lot, following the ‘less is more’ philosophy. The exterior design of Audi’s new luxury car has also become more aggressive, complementing its performance. The large single frame grille with bevelled upper corners and low horizontal air intakes blends well with the wide, chiselled front design. What stands out are the all-LED headlights, similar to the A8, that give them a sinister appeal. The Audi’s interior is very futuristic, with a great combination of wood, chrome inserts, soft plastic and fine-grain leather. It maintains the plush feel with the right dash of sportiness. The high-resolution graphics the MMI display offers are unparalleled and far superior to Merc’s Command and BMW’s iDrive. The seats in the Audi are well padded, offer good lumbar support, look rather sporty and can be adjusted in various ways to suit the driver’s need. The A6 will be offered in four engine options. The base model will be a 2.0 TDI turbo-diesel, producing 180 PS and makes it the most popular variant.

There will be a couple of petrols options as well, namely, a 2.8 FSI and 3.0 supercharged TFSI. But our choice is the 3.0 TDI Quattro. The Audi is powered by a very capable 2,967-cc turbo diesel engine, which is rather quiet for a diesel and which can churn out 248 PS of maximum power. But the fun of driving the luxury sedan can be best experienced when the massive 500 Nm of torque comes into play during the shattering mid-range It’s now more nimble and responsive than its predecessor. The electrically assisted power steering is light at low speed and gradually weighs up as the speed increases and gives desirable feedback. The handling of the car has also been taken to the next level, which became apparent on fast corners. Round the corners, the A6 held its line as if it were clawing the road. The ride quality is top class and a lot of credit goes to the tall rubber used on the 225/55 R17 profile tyres, which are best suited for Indian roads. The A6 is priced from Rs 39 lakhs to Rs 48.9 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi and is brilliant value for money for sure! For a detailed analysis read below.

Audi A6 Exteriors

 Visually the new A6 resembles elder sibling A8 a lot, following the ‘less is more’ philosophy. The exterior design of Audi’s new luxury car has also become more aggressive, complementing its performance. The large single frame grille with bevelled upper corners and low horizontal air intakes blends well with the wide, chiselled front design. What stands out are the all-LED headlights, similar to the A8, that give them a sinister appeal. Strong line shoulders commence from above the headlights, running through the fenders and across the side walls of the car, eventually meeting the trapezoidal tail-lights, impersonating the sleek and exquisite sword of a warrior.


What we like

 Looks sporty and chiselled


What we don't like

 Too similar to other Audis

Audi A6 Comfort & Suspension

 Ride of the A6 in comfort mode is brilliant and soaks up every pothole. The refinement is great as well, though the low ground clearance means you have to watch out for bad roads more. But overall the ride is very good and much improved over the last A6.


What we like

 Ride is much better than last A6


What we don't like

 Ride not class best



Audi A6 Engine & Performance

 The A6 will be offered in four engine options. The base model will be a 2.0 TDI turbo-diesel, producing 180 PS and makes it the most popular variant. There will be a couple of petrols options as well, namely, a 2.8 FSI and 3.0 supercharged TFSI. But our choice is the 3.0 TDI Quattro. The Audi is powered by a very capable 2,967-cc turbo diesel engine, which is rather quiet for a diesel and which can churn out 248 PS of maximum power. But the fun of driving the luxury sedan can be best experienced when the massive 500 Nm of torque comes into play during the shattering mid-range. There’s enough torque to overtake lesser automobiles on the road and shifting from the ‘D’ to ‘Sports’ mode in not even necessary. For additional fun, you also have paddle-shift on the steering wheel. The A6 does away with the traditional torque converter, but the twin clutch makes sure that the gear shifts are not jerky and, at the same time, offers better efficiency and performance. 200 km/h is easy for this car.


What we like

 Great performance from petrol and 3.0 TDI


What we don't like

 2.0 TDI is slow

Audi A6 Handling Braking & Safety

 It’s now more nimble and responsive than its predecessor. The electrically assisted power steering is light at low speed and gradually weighs up as the speed increases and gives desirable feedback. The handling of the car has also been taken to the next level, which became apparent on fast corners. Round the corners, the A6 held its line as if it were clawing the road. The ride quality is top class and a lot of credit goes to the tall rubber used on the 225/55 R17 profile tyres, which are best suited for Indian roads. Safety features include airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP.


What we like

 Excelelnt handling and Quattro offers superb grip


What we don't like

 Not as fun as other rivals
