30 Nov A Look at the 2019 Audi A6
Anyone looking for a completely redesigned Audi A6 in 2019 will be disappointed. The new A6 is more progressive than revolution, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive. Thanks to the new MLB Evo platform, the car drives fantastically and it’s one that any serious Audi fan should consider.
In this article, we take a look under the hood of the new 2019 Audi A6.
We’ll see the V6 first
Audi knows that we love power over here, which is why the German manufacturer will be launching the V6 version first. This V-6 engine is the same one that powers the A7 and A8, delivering 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque as a result of a single turbocharger. The engine also has start-stop technology. There’s only one transmission option — a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic that powers an all-wheel-drive system.
All about MMI
The interior of the new A6 has been revolutionized thanks to a brand new infotainment system. The MMI touchscreen that was first introduced in the new A8 makes an appearance, as does Audi’s cutting-edge virtual cockpit digital gauge cluster. The new touchscreen means that Audi has done away with pretty much all buttons and knobs. It definitely offers a cleaner, sexier, more advanced look.
The good news for entertainment lovers is that the new infotainment system is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The power of MMI also allows owners to program shortcuts into the system, such as preset radio stations, navigation routes and phone contacts.
The usual luxury interior
Audi hasn’t let off on the typical luxury finish inside the new A6. wood inserts and leather add to the luxury feel of the A6. Audi has also taken a step away from its traditional minimalism with large expanses of black plastic and metal trims that surround the instruments and displays.
A superior drive
So what is the new A6 like to drive? Every A6 model uses a multilink suspension in the front and rear. On top of that, all US cars will have steel springs and electronically adaptive dampers. Drivers can even purchase optional sports suspension which will lower the car by a further 0.8 inches. The driving experience can be customized through Audi’s Drive Select system which can vary the steering response, shift points, and shock valving.
A word on the exterior
The exterior of the A6 is largely the same as previous generations. There are slightly stronger lines and more carved bodywork to highlight its sporty side. For those that purchase the S line package, lowered sports suspension, S line bumpers, and 20-inch wheels will be available.
