Audi India has launched the all-new eighth-generation Audi A6 sedan in India at a starting price tag of ₹ 54.20 lakh (ex-showroom, India) for the Premium Plus variant while the higher-speced Technology variant cost ₹ 59.20 lakh (ex-showroom, India). At launch, the company announced the all-new eighth-generation Audi A6 available in two variants. The all-new eighth-generation is available in five colour options – Ibis White, Mythos Black, Vesuvius Grey, Seville Red, and Firmament Blue. At such a price tag, the all-new eight-generation Audi A6 will take on a number of offerings in the mid-size luxury sedan segment and it includes the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, Volvo S90 and the Jaguar XF.
The all-new, eighth-generation Audi A6 is a completely new model with revamped styling, improved interior with more space at the rear and host of new tech on offer. The all-new, eighth-generation Audi A6 gets an evolutionary design language that looks sharper than ever and borrows design cues from the Audi A7 and Audi A8.
The front-end is dominated by a wide hexagonal chrome slat grille that is flanked by Audi’s sleek-looking Matrix LED headlamps and sculpted hood.
More chrome is present around the window sill and the profile, which also get a sharp crease for added character. The bonnet gets new muscular lines for a strong impression, while the long-wheelbase makes for a safety look on the sedan. At the back, the all-new eighth-generation Audi A6 looks attractive as it gets sleek LED tail lamps that are connected by a thin chrome strip. Dual-tone alloy wheels up the premium ante further.
On the safety side, the all-new, eight-generation Audi A6 scores high and comes with eight airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors as well as a 360-degree camera. The other safety features are an electronic stability program, traction control, electric parking with auto-hold function and lane departure warning.
Under the hood, the all-new eight-generation Audi A6 is powered by a BSVI compliant 2.0-litre TFSI petrol engine that churns out 248 PS of maximum power and produces a peak torque of 370Nm. The engine is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels and the car is capable of hitting a top speed of 250 kmph, while reaches to 0-100kmph in 6.8 seconds. The engine also comes with Audi’s mild-hybrid technology and as per company claims, the fuel consumption of 14.11 kmpl of the car. We expect the BSVI compliant 2.0-litre TDI engine could be introduced later this year.
