Audi A6 drives in with new power-packed engines

German luxury car maker Audi  yesterday launched its new Audi A6 business sedan in India. The new design of the Audi A6 emphasises the car's strong personality, while its engine range, including the new turbo engine 3.0 TFSI, imparts the model with more power and higher efficiency.

The four engine variants of the new Audi A6  - 3.0 TFSI, 2.8 FSI, 3.0 TDI, 2.7 TDI - will be available at all  Audi dealerships across India from 4 May 2009 onwards.

Benoit Tiers, managing director Audi India, said, "The Audi A6 is the most successful business sedan worldwide and one of our main contributors to our achievement in the Indian market. The new Audi A6 with its thrilling design, powerful engines and its combination of dynamic performance and lower fuel consumption is an example of Audi's successful efficiency strategy and embodies our philosophy of 'Vorsprung durch Technik'. We believe the new Audi A6 will be one of the key players in the Indian luxury car market."

"India has been a significant growth driver for Audi and will be the car market of the future. In 2009 Audi celebrates 100 years of the brand and the launch of the new Audi A6 is Audi's continued commitment to the Indian market to offer luxury cars with superior technology, thrilling design and high performance to provide an unforgettable experience to our customers," added Benoit Tiers.

The design of the new Audi A6 is emphasised by a range of bold new accents, perfectly articulating the car's strong personality. The single-frame grill, bumpers, air vents and fog lights have all gotten a facelift. In the standard xenon plus, LED daytime running lights have been redesigned as horizontal strips with six LEDs each.

The new Audi A6 enters the Indian market with a higher equipment level than the predecessor and the well-known advanced Audi Multi Media Interface system, the MMI, which has been setting news standard for perfectly controlling any function of the car. The instrument panel uses new higher-resolution graphics; and a new frame better accentuates the display.
