Audi A6 review

           The new Audi A6, setting the standard in innovation Audi has redesigned its flagship executive class model. The new A6 is set to make its market debut in early 2011. With its light body, sporty chassis and a wide array of new assistance and multimedia systems, the full-sized sedan is packed with innovative solutions in every area of technology. The range of available engines and drivetrains is equally extensive.

           Most A6s will be sold as diesels and there are three to choose from a four cylinder 175bhp 2.0 with a manual gearbox, and two 3.0 litres V6 diesels with either 201 or 242bhp. The 2.0 is up to the job, but the V6s are usefully quicker. The petrol option is a 296bhp supercharged V6 that provides barnstorming pace.

          The Cd of the all-new exterior is just 0.26. Compared to the previous A6, the 2012 edition is slightly shorter and lower in overall length and height, an unusual shrinkage in this era of ever-growing models. Width is up 0.7 inches. A three inches stretch in wheelbase is the most significant dimensional alteration, a change made possible by the A6′s reengineered front differential and axle.
