The new Audi A6 is better than its predecessor on many fronts. To the naked eye, the new design really stands out thanks to the more aggressive cues that the designers at Audi have adopted. The front end as always is dominated by the six-sided Audi corporate grille flanked by sharper and meaner headlights with integrated LEDs. A prominent shoulder line runs along the length of the car which has been a characteristic feature of the Audi A6. The aluminum hybrid construction has enabled engineers to keep the cars weight down.Moving towards the rear of the car, the tail lights have been redesigned with a U-shaped LED stop lamp integrated into the rear light. The boot now gets a lip-spoiler which does help add a distinct touch to the rear end.

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.

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. There are plenty of cubbyholes and the steering, like the other two cars’, has gear pedal-shifts. The rear seats are low and comfortable. The best part of the cabin is that even though it has a coupé-like roof, it feels airy, thanks to the sleek pillars and low dashboard.

What we like

Best in class interior

What we don't like

Lacks space at rear

 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


Engine

 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


Mileage

There are four engine options in the Audi A6- two petrol and two diesels. The 2.8 TFSI and 3.0 TFSI give about 7 kmpl and 6 kmpl respectively while the A6 2.0 TDI gives 11 kmpl and the 3.0 TDI gives 10 kmpl.

What we like

Diesel's are efficient

What we don't like

Petrol lacks efficiency


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


Comfort

 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


Loan

Available EMI options
(For 60 months with interest rate of 10.5% and down payment of ₹ 4.24 Lakh)
₹ 81,982 per month

Best in the class

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Great Interiors,Comfort,Everything is excellent in this car.

Cons ,Nothing really.

I have driven this car for few thousand KM. It is really fun to drive. The local dealer - Chennai- is excellent in all aspects. Earlier i was having Q3. Now upgraded to A6 35 TDI. Went for long drive and found it very comfortable. Interior is excellent in regard to features and space. Lots of boot space. Stunning exterior- the all LED head lamp is first in any cars and is powerful.

A6 is high on luxury and features

By Arjun Kapoor Posted on 25 Mar 14, 03:56 PM

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Great Interiors,Comfort,

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,

One of the best luxury cars i have in my fleet of cars and partly due to the good service given to me by my local dealer, the A6 has become my favorite car. I am driven to office everyday but on weekends i have taken it out on a drive with my family. I find it very safe and also the social status of owning a A6 is excellent. I love turning up at parties in this car and especially going to corporate meetings. It has a powerful engine and it is fast on the highways. But the safety is the best part about this car and nothing seems to be compromised in building it by Audi! Great car and company!

An impressive car

By Himesh Posted on 13 Mar 14, 07:54 PM

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Great Interiors,Comfort,

Cons ,Couldn't find

Purchased the A6 facelift model, 2.0tdi multitronic S line. The car offers you everything that you probably need, Sat Nav, dual climate control , full leather interior, heated seats, retractable multimedia screen, xenon headlights, cruise control and list dosen't stop. Step inside the car and top notch quality will be seen from dashboard to the fabrics. Ignite the car and push the throttle this car is a breeze, in economy mode you will be able to get a fuel efficiency of 20 - 22 kmpl easily, put in sports mode and the car becomes a monster. The light weight chassis allows to get around corners pretty well. Overall the car is refined and has a luxurious, spacious interior. Its also well equipped and impressively clean and frugal

A6

By Scott Linford Posted on 05 Apr 14, 07:15 PM

Pros Good Performance,Great Interiors,

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,

I'm from Germany and I owned an A6 there as well. In India, not much has changed in the car though the traffic does not allow you to use the car to it's true potential. The 2.0 litre TDI is a great engine and just loves open highways. My wife drives the kids to school in it. Its a good car to own.
