Audi A6 Description
Manufacturer : Audi AG       Year : 2013

The Audi A6 is an executive car marketed by the German automaker Audi AG, now in its fourth generation. As the successor to the Audi 100, the A6 is manufactured in Neckarsulm, Germany – and is available in saloon, and wagon configurations, the latter marketed by Audi as the Avant.

All generations of the A6 have offered either front-wheel drive or Torsen-based four-wheel drive – marketed by Audi as their Quattro system. Second- and third- generation A6 models have shared their platform with the company's Allroad models.

Audi's mid-size car was previously named the Audi 100 (or Audi 5000 in the United States), and was released in three successive generations (Audi C1, Audi C2 and Audi C3). In 1994, the latest generation (C4) of the Audi 100 was facelifted and re-badged as the Audi A6, to fit in with Audi's new alphanumeric nomenclature (as the full-size A8 had just been introduced). The exterior was changed only slightly from the "C4" Audi 100 – new front and rear lights, new radiator grille, similarly with chassis and engine and transmission choices. The United Kingdom was the first market to receive the A6, as stock of right-hand-drive Audi 100s had run out before expected, and before the rest of mainland Europe.

A higher performance version of the C4 A6, called the Audi S6 was produced. It included the 4.2-litre V8 engine, which was uprated to 213 kilowatts (290 PS; 286 bhp), and a new limited edition 240 kW (326 PS; 322 bhp) version was added: the S6 PLUS made by quattro GmbH.

In late 1997, the introduction of a new A6 (Typ 4B), based on a new design automobile platform – the Volkswagen Group C5 platform, with a new range of internal combustion engines was announced. This new A6 moved up a notch in quality, and was marketed in the same categories as the BMW 5-Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Italian-redesigned body presented a modern design, with a fastback styling which set the trend for the Audi lineup, and gave the relatively large saloon an aerodynamic shell with a low coefficient of drag of 0.28.

In 2000 and 2001, the "C5" A6 was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list. This new A6 was available with a wide range of engines and configurations. The 30-valve 2.4- and 2.8-litre V6 engines represented the bulk of the A6's development programme, with a multitude of other engine configurations available throughout the globe. As an alternative to the manual transmission, a five-speed tiptronic automatic transmission was also available.

The Audi S6 was a high-powered variant of the A6, featuring a modified version of the 4.2-litre V8 engine producing 250 kilowatts (340 PS; 335 bhp) and 420 newton metres (310 lbf·ft). It was available as a saloon and Avant.

A hybrid electric variant was also available for the first time in the A6, offering a 2-litre TFSI 211 metric horsepower (155 kW) engine combined with a 45 PS (33 kW) electric motor. Electric power is supplied via 1.3kWh lithium-ion battery, with electric-only range of 3 km for constant 60 km/h (37.28 mph) drive and top speed of 100 km/h (62.14 mph).

The market launch of the A6 Hybrid is scheduled for 2012. However, production of the US model was delayed.

The 2013 A6 allroad quattro was launched at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, along with the 2012 RS4 Avant. Sales are due to begin in 2012. First UK deliveries are due in July 2012.

German model went on sale in spring 2012. Early models included 3.0 TFSI quattro (310PS), 3.0 TDI quattro (204PS), 3.0 TDI quattro (245PS), 3.0 TDI quattro (313PS).
