Audi has launched the new Audi A6 face-lift in India at a price of Rs 49.5 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi and Mumbai). The refreshed version of the mid-size luxury sedan will be made available in only one, fully-loaded version, dubbed the A6 Matrix. The Audi A6 Matrix is the sixth launch of the year by the Ingolstadt-based German luxury car manufacturer in India.

Compared to the outgoing model, the new Audi A6 brings distinguishable visual upgrades and additional equipment in the car along with some major drivetrain revisions.

On the styling front, the new A6, as the name suggests, come with a new set Matrix LED headlamps with T-shaped LED bars and dynamic turn signals; the tail-lamps have been re-profiled with similar T-shaped LED strips. Among other tweaks, the front and rear bumpers have been redesigned while reshaped air intakes, chrome detailing on sills, exhaust tip and front grille complete the exterior updates.

In the cabin, the Audi A6 Matrix has been kitted out to the brim. Some of the highlights on the new model include MMI infotainment with Handwriting Recognition and updated navigation system, Bose surround-sound system, voice control, 4-zone auto air-conditioning, electronic front passenger seat adjust from rear bench, etc. Surprisingly, the interior design and layout remain mostly unchanged in the A6 Matrix, although in international markets the face-lifted version gets some noticeable revisions like a three-spoke steering wheel, new upholstery etc.

Audi is only offering the A6 Matrix in a single powertrain option with front-wheel drive layout. It will come powered by the same 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel motor,albeit it has been uprated to 190PS from 177PS in the earlier model. The major mechanical update, however, is the introduction of a S-Tronic (dual-clutch) gearbox in place of the old car’s Multitronic CVT gearbox. It should certainly make the car response more sprightly to driver inputs than before!

Audi will not be offering any petrol engine option in the Indian-spec A6 as of now. The more powerful 3.0 TDI with four-wheel drive ‘quattro’ does not get any mention for the Indian market as well. Expect Audi to launch it some time later though.

Like the outgoing model, the A6 Matrix will come fitted with Airmatic Suspension with Audi Drive Select system. Safety systems on the new A6 will include 8 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, hill-hold, rear parking cameras, etc.

The new Audi A6 will be competing against the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Jaguar XF and the Volvo S80 in the Indian market.

Audi also took the opportunity to launch the A6 Matrix on a digital platform in India, check the launch video below,
