The upcoming Audi A6 will be launched later in 2019 and the car spied here reportedly gets a petrol engine.
2019 Audi A6 will launch in India later this year and now reports suggest that it will also come in a petrol engine. The much-awaited sedan was showcased at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
Under the hood, the 2019 Audi A6 petrol engine gets a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol motor which will churn out 245 bhp with 375 Nm of peak torque. It will be mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
As per dimensions, the new Audi A6 is now 7mm longer, 12mm wider and gets 2mm of increased height. The wheelbase gets longer by 12mm which makes the cabin more spacious inside.
The new Audi A6 borrows its design inspiration from its elder sibling, the Audi A8L. The front fascia marks a lower grille upfront with neat headlight design and air vents have some curves and slopes in it. The rear profile sees LED tail lights with a chrome strip joining them.
Talking about the interiors, it will receive a new dashboard design along with an updated instrument cluster. The sedan will also see two MMI touch response displays which are driver-focused. It gets Audi connect settings, navigation aids and the top of the line trim sees a Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System which delivers 3D sound at the rear.
It is not sure whether Audi will launch a diesel engine at first. The Volkswagen Group is having thoughts about upgrading the 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine to BS6 emission norms since the same engine is used in Skoda Kodiaq, Octavia, Superb to Audi A4. Globally, Audi A6 dies comes with Euro-6 spec of the diesel motor which churns out 204 bhp and 400 Nm of peak torque.
The current 1.8-litre petrol motor generates 190 bhp with 320 Nm of torque. We expect that the power figures will be more with the upcoming Audi A6.
As far as the prices go, the current petrol spec comes at a tag of Rs 55.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). We expect with the new design and new features onboard, the prices for the upcoming Audi A6 will be premium than the current model. It will compete with the likes of the Mercedes E Class and BMW 5 Series and Jaguar XF.
