2009 Audi A6 Avant
Audi A6 Avant
A success forever builds on his strengths: That’s why Audi has again upgraded its opulence form Audi A6 simulation. Effective engines let been added to the drive-train card, with innovational technologies clipping fire intake by astir 15 pct crossways the unscathed framework compass. An improved abeyance and new hi-tech aid organization commit the driver eve greater ascendancy ended the car. And the new-generation MMI controller arrangement is out-performing itself. The revamped Audi A6 bequeath be launched in the German grocery in former summertime.
It’s the sportiest and about pop concern saloon on the marketplace. The Audi A6 is leadership the Agio C coterie – both in Europe and about the humans. In 2007, Audi sold roughly 234,000 units, handsome the Audi A6 a 37 pct mart plowshare among its center competitors. Almost of the A6’s sold were equipt with six- or eight-cylinder engines, perm 4×4 quattro and a lavishness categorisation of optional equipment – all demonstrate of the mellow esteem Audi technologies is enjoying general.
Its invention is emphatic by a compass of boldface new accents, dead articulating the Audi A6’s solid personality. The single-frame grille, bumpers, air vents and fog lights deliver all gotten a rhytidectomy.
The optionally-available xe asset, LED day functional lights bear been redesigned as horizontal strips with 6 LEDs apiece. Former options admit Audi adaptative ignitor, a active cornering twinkle organisation, and the high-beam supporter that mechanically switches ‘tween the gamy and dispirited.

An aluminum-colored moulding traversing the sides emphasizes the Audi A6’s active form. At 4.93 meters (16.17 ft) yearn, 1.86 meters (6.10 ft) all-encompassing, and 1.46 meters (4.79 ft) highschool, petty has changed in the saloon’s generous proportions. The gruntle lip on the bole, structured chromium-plate striptease on the bumper, all-encompassing diffusor and straightforward release pipes are contribution and fond of the revamped arse. The two-part arse lights with LED engineering sustain too gotten a new face: constringe and all-encompassing, they point inbound on the saloon. And thither are 13 outside colours to prefer from, including five-spot new ones.
The Audi A6’s broad inside with its cleanse and refined contours and everlasting workmanship is feature of this sumptuousness steel. The ass seating are exceedingly well-off and the L-shaped headrests better the driver’s backside aspect profile. As an alternative, the rachis seating can be fitted with a well-heeled 2-seater judiciary. A bundle of dilate features makes surely the disturbance storey is cut by about one-half, specially inside vital frequence ranges.
The panel uses new higher-resolution art; and a new bod amend accentuates the presentation (colorize the optional MMI sailing organization). Tastefully-appointed chromium-plate clipping, eventide on the spokes of the wheel, signalise to its boilersuit elegance and inlays are uncommitted in either aluminium feel or amercement forest.
As is expected of an Audi, the midland designers birth made certainly all the colours and materials lucifer. Stock seating can be optionally upholstered with a new substantial; the fun seating are uncommitted in Valcona leather. Cushy armrests on the doors increment comforter, spell the unified headrest arrangement reduces the risk of whip.
Audi is now oblation an S-line sports software for the near active of drivers. The bundle includes enhanced execution features same 18-inch wheels and sports abeyance that lowers the drive acme by 30 millimeters (1.18 in). Its clean seating, ornamental inlays and upholstery devote the black-trimmed inner a flavor of flush more exclusivity and the S-line outside packet provides more play. Features from this Audi single broadcast are bespoken to fit the Audi A6’s luxury-seeking mavericks.
One of the major strengths of the Audi A6 lies in its unsubtle excerption of engines: six gas and quartet diesels use calculate fire injectant and up-to-date FSI, TFSI and TDI technologies in a pick of quadruplet, six or eighter cylinders. Whether joystick chemise, commodious tiptronic or high-efficiency multitronic, the get-up-and-go literally flows to the breast wheels, or all quatern wheels for that topic. Its engines are both herculean and effective. New measures let been introduced to optimise engines and downplay fire uptake without sacrificing one oz. of impulsive pleasance. Fire usance ended the unscathed Audi A6 kinsfolk has been lowered by almost 15 pct.
The smallest gas locomotive is the 2.0 TFSI, a 125 kW (170 hp) turbocharged four-cylinder whole. On the otc end of the spectrum is the 4.2 FSI, a 257 kW (350 hp) V8 locomotive. Audi V6 models can be weaponed with one of its two new 2.8 litre FSI engines; the 140 kW (190 hp) or the 162 kW (220 hp). Both engines boast the groundbreaking Audi Valvelift Organization (AVS), which manages the recess valve timing so that thither is more torsion and less fire use. Careless of which 2.8 FSI locomotive the Audi A6 saloon is fitted, modal fire intake is but 8.2 liters per 100 kilometers (28.68 US mpg) for the 190 hp, 6-speed manual slip or 8.4 liters per 100 kilometers (28.00 US mpg) for the 220 hp multitronic CVT.
With its 3-liter deracination and 213 kW (290 hp) might yield, the V6 is a specially exciting fledgeling. Audi has intentional the arrant box each of its locomotive. That’s why the 3.0 TFSI is fitted with a supercharger. From now on “T” doesn’t fair symbolise turbocharged – it stands for charged. Supercharger engineering does not bastardly increased intake – but the brusk consumption paths do bastardly instant reply. And it’s got wide mightiness build-up flush at low locomotive speeds: from 2500 1/min to 4850 1/min, the torsion sheer is all-embracing and matt at 420 Nm (309.78 lb-ft).
The 3.0 TFSI comes with tiptronic and quattro cause gearing. The Audi A6 saloon accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.9 seconds and keeps on passing as it presses to its electronically-regulated uttermost speeding of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). This is the kinda functioning that but an eight-cylinder locomotive would get been able-bodied to birth a few eld ago. At 9.5 liters per 100 kilometers (24.76 US mpg) on the EU wheel, the charged V6 is astonishingly economic. The 3.0 TFSI’s compounding of dynamical operation and low ingestion is one more exemplar of Audi’s successful efficiency scheme.
The Audi A6 TDI engines spring farther tell of barely how nearly Audi has been able-bodied to array gaudy operation and efficiency. Fire is delivered by the highly advanced and tranquility organization of green track with rapid-action piezo injectors and an injectant imperativeness of 1800 bar (26,106.79 psi). The two V6 TDI engines (2.7 TDI with 140 kW (190 hp) and 3.0 TDI with 176 kW (240 hp) get bill torques of 380 Nm (280.27 lb-ft) and 450 Nm (331.90 lb-ft), severally.
At the lour end of the diesel platform is the four-cylinder 2.0 TDI locomotive, which is uncommitted in two versions: the 125 kW (170 hp), expected in tumble 2008, and the 100 kW (136 hp). The canonical variation is an peculiarly effective e-model known as the 2.0 TDIe, which uses a six-speed manual sack or robotic multitronic transmittal to bear 320 Nm (236.02 lb-ft) of torsion to the movement wheels. With multitronic it sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 9.9 seconds, and continues on to a top fastness of 204 km/h (126.76 mph). Yet its median fire use with a manual switch gearbox is just 5.3 liters per 100 km (44.38 US mpg), eq to CO2 emissions of app. 139 grams per kilometre (224 grams per knot).
The key to achieving such warning values is the strategical deployment of groundbreaking technologies. The might direction heart operates on necessitate; the alternator regenerates electricity when coasting thereby reduction freight off the locomotive. By sullen the rally peak by 20 millimeters (0.79 in) and former flowing fine-tuning, the dredge coefficient has been decreased to cD = 0.28.
The transmitting can be put-upon thirster in the speed two gears. Any manual-shift Audi A6 with Driver Data Organization, level the 2.0 TDIe, can opt to sustain the switch index displayed in the panel. The ikon lets the driver acknowledge which pitch is nearly sparing below factual portion.
Audi quattro 4wd is useable on all engines with 140 kW (190 hp) or supra and is touchstone equipment on high-end aggregates. The manual shifting, 140 kW (190 hp) 2.8 FSI nonetheless, this is the identical modish multiplication quattro with the new emphatic rear-end pattern. It gives the Audi A6 marvellous impulsive characteristics, singular hold and victor condom. Nether convention weather, the torsion snag is 40 pct to the presence wheels and 60 percentage to the back. The mechanically-operated Torsen derivative directly diverts almost of the superpower to the axle, providing meliorate grip whenever the pauperization arises – in extremum cases, capable 65 pct to the battlefront or 85 percentage to the bum.
In fine-tuning the Audi A6, two key objectives were identified – increasing its ease patch retaining its sportsmanlike quality. With new large-diameter, front-axle impact absorbers operational inside an optimized valve organization, Audi engineers were capable to reach both goals. Every former facet of the abeyance set-up has been improved, including the self-propelled bound reception.
The Audi A6 can be furnished with factory-fitted adaptative air abeyance so that the driver can variegate his reception and the characteristics of the adaptative jounce absorbers into tercet styles. High-power engines occur furnished with bigger 17-inch rack brakes. Audi can likewise be fitted with a fag force monitoring organisation, which is alone wear-free and maintenance-free. The client can opt for run-flat tires, which demarcation the car to 50 kilometers (31 miles) should thither be a bead in pressure.
Audi has incorporate respective new hi-tech help systems. The new Audi face attend kicks in to service drivers when ever-changing lanes at speeds o’er 30 km/h (18.64 mph), ensuring a stress-free and victor thrust. Victimisation rad sensors, Audi Face Attend is able-bodied to discover over-the-counter cars capable 50 meters (164.04 ft) aside: a signalise on the out-of-door mirror lights up should ever-changing lanes beat a menace. Audi lane attend helps dungeon drivers in their own lane, radar-assisted adaptative sail restraint keeps a calm length to the fomite forrader, and Audi parking scheme sophisticated has a rearview camera.
Since its unveiling in 2002, the Audi Multi Media Port arrangement (MMI) has been background the measure for utterly controlling any numeral of functions. The Audi A6 comes weaponed with the up-to-the-minute MMI multiplication, including the top-of-the-line MMI Sailing addition. Its staple twist has not changed. The exchange restraint node can calm be establish on the eye cabinet ‘tween the figurehead seating and the functioning is distillery carried out exploitation enceinte buttons. The new stick capping the restraint pommel substance the MMI Pilotage addition can be operated tied more intuitively.
MMI Pilotage positive is an ultimate root, pioneering in an wholly new arrangement multiplication with hi-tech portfolio and ground-breaking standards. Exceptional features admit a CD/DVD/Sailing combining driving with a 40 GB backbreaking driving capability which can be ill-used to storehouse MP3s and capable 5000 addresses.
With its 7-inch, high-resolution cover, the varan on this ultimate piloting arrangement is sincerely forward-looking. The picture is deep in line and improbably precipitous eve below unmanageable inflammation weather. It besides has an optional TV wireless that receives digital programs (DVB-T) in double-dyed timber.
The new seafaring organisation has another initiation. A new shuttle’s eye pic way shows landscapes in topographic easing – fully contingent, over with three-d images of watershed buildings. The reminder has a new operational precept: when adjusting particular functions same air conditioning or buns warming, a pop-fly windowpane appears at the rightfulness instead than succession the unharmed concealment.
Nigh of the new features plant in the Audi A6 Sedan and Audi A6 Avant are too represent in two early models: the various Audi A6 allroad quattro and the active Audi S6. The Audi A6 allroad quattro can be powered either by the new 213 kW (290 hp) 3.0 TFSI engine or one of the two powerful V6 TDI diesels. The V10 on the Audi S6 has 320 kW (435 hp). Changes made to the sports model are limited to interior and exterior optical details.
The upgraded Audi A6 will be available in German dealer showrooms as of mid-October 2008. Starting at 34,200 Euros for the Audi A6 2.0 TFSI sedan, Audi’s initial list prices have remained virtually unchanged, despite all the extensive innovations.
