Audi offers the new A6 with a choice of seven powerful and highly efficient four- and six-cylinder engines. The three gasoline and four TDI engines produce between 130 kW (177 hp) and 230 kW (313 hp). All engines use key technologies from Audi’s modular efficiency platform – the innovative thermal management and the start-stop system.
Compared to the previous model, fuel consumption has been reduced by as much as 21 percent – a top mark in its class.
The most fuel-efficient unit in the lineup is the 2.0 TDI. When paired with the manual transmission, it consumes only 4.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (48.0 US mpg), which corresponds to only 129 grams of CO2/km (207.61 g/mile). The top engine is the new 3.0 TDI with twin turbochargers. The V6 diesel powers the sedan with 230 kW (313 hp) and 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft) of torque.
