Tax-beating engines and new standard transmissions for revised Audi A6 executive saloon and Avant ranges

Vorsprung durch Technik has come to the fore yet again in the latest Audi A6 range, which through the application of advanced new TDI technology has become the World's first in the executive class to feature tax-beating EU4 compliant diesel engines. Available to order now, the revised range is not only more efficient, but also provides more standard equipment across the board, and a more relaxed drive thanks to standard automatic transmission for all six-cylinder petrol and TDI versions. More luxury as standard All A6 saloon and Avant models ordered now will offer, as standard, the luxury of Buffalino leather upholstery - previously an optional extra costing £1,365.

V6 petrol and V6 TDI models are also now equipped as standard with automatic transmission - five-speed tiptronic for the 3.0 quattro and 2.5 TDI quattro (180PS) and six-speed multitronic continuously variable (CVT) for the 2.4 petrol and 2.5 TDI (163PS). The much praised and still unique multitronic transmission has just been upgraded to include a Sport mode that holds each of the six pre-set gear ratios for longer under acceleration to maximise performance. Manual transmission will continue to be available as a no cost option for four and six-cylinder models.
