The svelte eighth-generation Audi A6 comes to the Philippines

September 9, 2019

A year and a half after its world premiere, the eighth-generation Audi A6 makes its way to the Philippines.

Sporting a sleek and sexy shape, the multi-awarded sedan boasts of styling touches that are both elegant and futuristic.

The latest iteration of Audi’s Singleframe grille is flanked by sharp-looking matrix LED headlamps, along with strategically placed air inlets.

The side profile is dominated by a sloping roofline that is eye-catching and functional at the same time.

The look is finished of by a rear that follows the same sleek look of what’s up front.

Step inside and you’ll be greeted by an elegant interior that comes with only the finest materials in the business.

This being a tech-laden Audi, a slew of screens from the 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit to the 10.1-inch central touchscreen and 8.8-inch lower display all come standard.

The first one lets drivers in on what’s going in with their vehicle as well as navigation info. The central display controls various vehicle and infotainment features, while the last one manipulates climate, navigation, and even the Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound system and ambient lighting.

Of course, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are part of the connectivity options.

The latest Audi A6 gets a 2.0-liter TFSI turbo gasoline motor with mild hybrid technology under the long hood. This one produces 245hp and 370Nm and is paired with a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox.

This combo promises smooth and refined power delivery that is both fuel efficient and capable of easily getting up to and maintaining speed.

Aside from the straights, the all-aluminum suspension and equally light cast aluminum wheels provide excellent ride comfort and stability in the corners.

And yes, a whole gamut of safety kit will keep you and your passengers cocooned in various conditions.

The new Audi A6 is now available at your nearest Audi Philippines showroom.
