Paris Motor Show LIVE: Audi A6 2.0 TDI ultra image

The Ingolstadt-based carmaker officially revealed to the public the facelifted Audi A6 during the Paris Motor Show, featuring numerous technical revisions and just subtle visual tweaks.

The large-family sedan has been refreshed with a mildly modified singleframe front grille, updated headlights & taillights along with slightly altered bumpers, side sills and exhaust pipes. Now, the A6 family can be equipped with Audi’s new LED or matrix LED headlights that also have dynamic turn signals embedded.

Deliveries in Europe should kick-in this month or the next, with prices in Germany starting from 38,400 euros if the buyer goes for the entry-level A6 1.8 TFSI. If you want to go all the way up to the RS6 Avant, you need to have at least 108,900 EUR.

“With the new Audi A6, we are writing the next chapter in an excellent success story. It represents innovative technology and Audi’s premium claim,” comments Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi’s technical boss. “The Audi A6 sets new standards in many technical fields: the lightweight body containing many aluminum components, the powerful and highly efficient engines, the sporty chassis and the advanced assistance and multimedia systems.”

Under the hood the A6 can be equipped with three TFSI and five TDI engines, all of them compliant with the Euro 6 standard now. The 2.0 TDI ultra we see in the live pictures has 150 hp under the bonnet, which require just 4.2 liters / 100 km (56 mpg) – with CO2 emissions of 109 g/km. This specific version has lost 4.4 kg (9.7 lbs) thanks to the use of new glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) springs.
