New Audi A6 launched at Rs 54.2 lakh onward.

Both have the same driveline, a 2-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, and a front-wheel-drive.
Either light or dark interior available as an option with both trims.
The new Audi A6 has been launched at Rs 54.2 lakh onwards, ex-showroom. It is available in two variants, called ‘Premium Plus’ and ‘Technology’. We explain what the differences are. First, let’s run through the similarities.
Engine and Gearbox
The new A6 is available with just one driveline option, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that generates 240 bhp and 370 Nm. This puts its power down to the front wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic gearbox that Audi terms ‘S-Tronic’.
Safety consists of traction control, ABS, EBD, CBC, ESP, 8 airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system, lane departure warning, and the Audi pre-sense basic technology.
Audi A6 Colors
You can have either variant in any of the following exterior colors – a solid white, or a range of four metallic colors: black, grey, blue, or red. In a similar fashion, the interior options consist of either a dark brown theme or a beige one. Both options have silver options. Now on to the differences.
Audi A6 Exterior
The Audi A6 Premium Plus offers automatic headlamps, 18-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, heated mirrors that are electrically adjustable and foldable and that have a memory function, and a washer system for the headlamps as well as the reverse camera.
Audi A6 Interior
Inside, it offers full electric adjustment for the front seats, a memory function for the driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, an Audi sound system that puts out 180 Watts from 10 speakers via 6 channels, an electric rear sunblind, and manual blinds for the rear doors.
What it doesn’t have is keyless entry and go, which will appeal to the more traditional owner. You can have an A6 Premium Plus for Rs 54.2 lakh, ex-showroom. The Audi A6 Technology is priced Rs 5 lakh higher than the Premium Plus. For the extra money, you get ‘Matrix’ headlamps, different two-tone alloy wheels, and dynamic turn signals on the outside.
Inside, there is a four-zone climate control system, electric steering wheel adjustment linked to the seat memory, an ambient lighting package, a wireless phone charger, and the audio system is upgraded to a Bang & Olufsen Premium 3D sound system that puts out an eardrum-shattering 705 Watts from 16 speakers and 15 channels. There is also automatic steering while parking, and gesture-based boot lid opening.
