Audi has announced the A6 Ultra which produces more power, emits less CO2 and achieves greater MPG.
The new A6 ultra models are powered by a highly efficient EU6 emission-standard four-cylinder 2.0 TDI 190PS engine, and are available with a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed S tronic transmission which will arrive later in the year. The new engine directly replaces the outgoing 2.0 TDI 177PS unit in both Saloon and Avant models, and offers a drop in CO2 from 132g/km to 114g/km and a rise in combined MPG from 47.1 to 55.4 mpg.
The A6 Ultra will also get a completely redesigned version of Audi’s seven-speed twin-clutch S-Tronic transmission, which is set to replace the Multitronic automatic gearbox that’s currently available in four-cylinder A6 models, including the outgoing 174bhp diesel. A manual version of the Ultra is also on the way later in 2014.
Audi says that the aim of the new engine is to provide class-leading levels of efficiency and emissions while also improving driveability and performance. It also highlights the fact that the new engine is available without any restrictions on specification – in other words, you can have it in whichever of the A6’s three trim levels you like, as well as in saloon or estate form, and still enjoy the benefits of its frugality.
The A6 Ultra is available to order now, contact us for further details.
