Audi South Africa has updated its website and loaded up pricing and some details of its A6 executive sedan. Here's how much it will cost, as well as details regarding the S6.
Taking the fight to the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the new Audi A6. It should be touching down in SA imminently and the configurator is active for both the A6 and S6.
The Audi A6 and S6 are available with just the single-engine option each. The A6 40 TDI S tronic features a 2.0-litre TDI which produces 140 kW and 400 Nm. Audi is claiming a sprint time of 8.4 seconds and it'll run to a top speed of 237 kph. The more performance-focused Audi S6 makes do with a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine with 331 kW and 600 Nm, which petrolheads will recognise as the same outputs as the RS4/RS5. Audi Sport claims 4.5 seconds to 100 kph, with a limited top speed of 250 kph. If you're wanting even more, well you're going to have to wait for the thundering Audi RS6 Avant which is due in 2020.
The Audi A6 is available with 2 packages: Comfort (R30 000) and Sports (R29 200), while the S6 has the option of the Black Appearance package (R10 450). Standard equipment levels are very high at this price point, but you can go wild in the options, for example 21-inch alloy wheels for your A6. It is great to see things like MMI navigation plus as well as smartphone interface fitted as standard.
We look forward to driving the newcomers and will bring you final specifications when they're released.
