One of the finest designs that have ushered out of the Audi Company is the very refined and lush Audi A6 that not only stands apart from others but also draws immediate attention with the impeccable detailing that has gone into the making of this sedan. The Audi A6 is a stylish coupe, now in its 4th generation. It was launched in India in 2011 and since then it has been a popular choice of vehicle among the elite business class.
Both the interiors and the exteriors of the Audi A6 have been well sculpted to perfectly suit the needs, comforts and extravagance of its consumers. The exteriors have a grand look with a toned body, the proudly set LED daytime running headlamp bands and the stunning bold grille as the prestigious ‘Audi’ signature thrones on it. The interiors are plush with a comfy seating design, a 530 litre luggage space and a smart distribution of usage space in terms of shelves and compartments.
The Audi A6 is incomparably endowed with some very smart features. One such amazing attribute is the Audi Pre Sense system which alarms and triggers preventive safety measures such as tensioning of the seat belts and closing the sun roof if in case any danger is sensed. Radar sensors and a video camera are also installed in the car that scan the road conditions and make for protected driving. There is also a Start/ Stop system which automatically shuts the engine once the car comes to a halt (like pausing at traffic signals) and thereby reduces CO2 emissions and increases fuel efficiency. The engine starts once again by itself when the driver presses the clutch for it to move again.
The Audi A6 comes in four variants:
• Audi A6 2.8 FSI- a V6 petrol engine with direct fuel injection and Audi valve-lift system (produces a power of 150 Kw and torque of 280 Nm).
• Audi A6 3.0 TFSI Quattro- V6 cylinder petrol engine with direct fuel injection and mechanical charging module (produces a power of 220 Kw and torque of 440 Nm).

Price wise, the Audi A6 is ranged between 41.91 lakhs and 53.26 lakhs (Ex showroom price- Delhi) depending on the choice of the variant.
The Audi A6 has proved to be a consistent favourite of the automobile experts when it comes to luxury cars. It was chosen by the Consumer Reports Magazine as the ‘Best Luxury Sedan’ in the midsize category. The Audi A6 3.0 TDI Quattro also won the Australian Car of the Year Award for the Best Luxury Car in 2012.
A winner of several awards, brand Audi has not just delivered some of the most premium cars but has also always strived for the top spot.
