|Euromobil has found a worthy replacement for one of its best selling variant in the form of the Audi A6 2.0 TFSI.|
The refreshed Audi A6 now includes full LED headlights, MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch and Audi parking+ with reverse camera. In looks, the long wheelbase variant has upgraded with 18-inch V-shaped five-spoke wheels, compared to the smaller 17-inchers 10-spokes of the previous edition; other than that, all the previous generation’s exterior elements are in tact.
Inside, the cabin presents the four-ring marque’s finest yet; spearheaded by the 7-inch touch screen display with MMI Navigation plus/ MMI touch and Audi parking+ with reverse camera. Its spacious cabin, plush seats and interior (wood-like) trimmings are standard highlights for the 2014 A6 2.0.
Slight improvement in the efficiency factor for the Audi A6 2.0 TFSI
Under the hood. the able 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder petrol powerplant is able to churn 180 hp at 4,000 – 6,000 rpm and generate 320 Nm of torque from 1,500 rpm. Paired to smooth shifting 8-speed multitronic trasmission, the A6 gives very comparative fuel consumption ratings at only 6.4l/100kms. Fuel efficiency is also attributed to Audi’s Innovative Thermal Management and Energy Recuperation System, while the Audi Drive Select system which adjusts steering, throttle and transmission settings enables four different modes of drive: Auto, Comfort, Dynamic and Efficiency.
Thanks to the A6’s aluminium hybrid body, the mid-sized sedan gross weight has been slashed by 15%; which is way lighter than conventional steel construction.
The Audi A6 2.0 TFSI is offered with the added items at a lower cost of RM30,000; an RM 16,600 discount on its actual cost. Now valid for test drives at Audi Malaysia showrooms, the A6 2.0 TFSI has a retail price list of RM375,000 On-the-Road; previously RM345,000 for the previous generation.
