The new Audi A6 combines dynamic design with excellent daily utility and adaptability. The rear has a sweeping style, and offers a flexible concept for the luggage compartment, with capacities between 565 liters and 1,680 liters. Traction and suspension are designed with comfort and sportiness in mind. The lightweight hybrid system improves efficiency, while the dynamic steering on all wheels increases maneuverability and agility. With its intuitive operation, the all-digital MMI system offers a high level of convenience to the driver and passengers. Attractive cranks are called by the name Avant – the new A6 Avant maintains this aspiration of the Audi brand. With sharp lines, large surfaces and a distinctive low profile rear window, the exterior design reflects the brand’s new language. The A6 Avant exudes elegance, sportiness and sophistication with its long front and slightly sloping roofline. The wide and low Singleframe grille highlights the front, while the elongated silhouette and trapezoidal window surfaces dominate the side view. Distinct protrusions, which visually emphasize quattro traction, extend over the wheeled cartons. The roof line flows into the low profile D column. The spoiler extends the silhouette and highlights the sporty look of the model. At the rear, a decorative finish provides a connection between the lanterns. In addition to the twelve paint colors, customers can choose from the optional sport and design equipment lines as well as the S line external package. The new A6 Avant is 4.94 meters long, 1.89 meters wide and 1.47 meters high. Its interior is even bigger than its predecessor, outpacing competitors in shoulder space and knees in the rear. Despite the sports lines, the wagon maintains the wide load capacity of the previous generation. The luggage compartment is 1,050 millimeters wide and has a capacity of 565 liters in the basic configuration, increasing to 1,680 liters with the folded backs. The A6 Avant comes with an extensive package of safety systems including lighting technology, assistance systems and passive safety. LED headlamps are standard on the model. Three options are available with HD Matrix LED headlamps with high resolution beam at the top of the line version. The dynamic arrows and pulsating lights of the ‘coming-home’ and ‘leaving-home’ function are distinct features of the A6 family. The optional ambient lighting package brings the interior design to life.
With drivers and passengers in mind, the A6 Avant offers a wide range of driver assistance systems, divided into ‘City’ and ‘Tour’ packages. In addition to Audi pre sense emergency braking at the front, the driver assistance systems also include adaptive cruise assistant, which offers lateral and longitudinal control in the traffic and stop of traffic between full stop up to 250 km / h, accelerating and braking without driver intervention. For the additional efficiency wizard function, the adaptive cruise assistant predicts factors such as speed limits, curves, and detours if the route guidance is active. In addition to the predictive information in the dashboard, the efficiency wizard also provides tactile feedback via the accelerator pedal. Together with the MHEV lightweight hybrid system, these functions can help fuel economy. The emergency assistant enhances safety by recognizing when the driver fails, providing visual, acoustic or tactile warning. If the driver does not respond, the system takes control, lights the warning lights and automatically takes the A6 to a stop in its own lane. All engines are fitted as standard with a lightweight hybrid system, which further increases comfort and efficiency, while reducing fuel consumption. The belt alternator starter, the heart of the MHEV, recovers up to 12 kW with the 48 V system during braking and feeds the electricity into a separate lithium-ion battery. With the engine off, the new A6 Avant can run between 55 km / h and 160 km / h; the start-stop is already in action at 22 km / h.
The suspension of the new A6 Avant offers an even greater differential between dynamics and comfort than its predecessor. The progressive steering is highly comfortable. With an already sporty relationship, it becomes more and more direct with the increase of the steering angle. The Audi offers dynamic steering on all four wheels as optional, which makes the model highly maneuverable. At speeds of up to 60 km / h, the rear wheels rotate up to five degrees in the opposite direction. This reduces the turning diameter by up to one meter, to 11.1 meters. Park, maneuver or drive in urban traffic – the size of the A6 Avant is not perceived in everyday situations. Customers can choose from four versions of suspension: standard steel spring, sports, with damper control and adaptive pneumatics, also with controlled dampers. In addition to the shock absorbers and air springs, the electronic chassis platform (ECP) also controls the dynamic steering on all wheels and the sports differential, which actively distributes torque as needed between the rear wheels during fast corners. The interior of the new A6 Avant features an elegant and minimalist architecture that blends harmoniously with the concept of operation. A black surface with the built-in MMI display dominates the elegant instrument panel. Just like the lower screen in the center console, it is slightly inclined towards the driver. Depending on the wishes of the customer, the interior of the vehicle can take on completely different personalities. In addition to the basic version, four lines of equipment are available, each with its own color concept: sport, design, design selection and the S line sports package. The driver performs almost all vehicle functions on two large screens of the MMI operating system touch sensitive. The management of infotainment and navigation systems is done on the top screen of 10.1 inches. The 8.6-inch screen below is used for temperature control, comfort functions, and text input. The driver’s pulse can rest comfortably on the shift lever during the operation of the functions. Thanks to acoustic and tactile feedback, the MMI technology is fast and reliable. The structure of the menu is logical and intuitive, just like that of a smartphone.
MMI Navigation Plus also includes the all-digital Audi virtual cockpit with its 12.3-inch screen, operated by multifunctional buttons on the steering wheel. The head-up display projects information into the windshield. Natural language voice control turns the new A6 Avant into a smart dialogue partner. The system responds to commands and questions in two ways: with data stored on board and knowledge of the cloud. Personalization offers up to seven individual profiles, allowing multiple drivers to store up to 400 configurations. The MMI Navigation Plus system (optional) is the top-of-the-line component in the information and entertainment range of the A6 Avant. Its data transfer module supports the LTE Advanced standard and incorporates a WiFi hotspot. The navigation system recognizes driver preferences based on previous trips and generates smart suggestions from this information. The Audi connect portfolio offers numerous online services. The myAudi application connects the car to the owner’s smartphone.
