2019 Audi A6 Avant Diesel Release Date, Price, Spy Shots, & Redesign – The 2019 Audi A6 Avant is one of the greatest wagons of our times: it is luxurious, streamlined-looking, and sensible at the same time. And now you get some 127 new photos to assess it in every piece of information. It looks sportier than its predecessor thanks to a lot more muscular wheel arches, short overhangs, and the roofline than delicately ski slopes towards the rear end. We’re actually wondering what the RS6 Avant will be like if the standard model appears so hostile.
With the release of the new photos, Audi has confirmed the engine lineup of its new big wagon. In Europe, the A6 Avant will launch with three turbocharged devices. The entry-level power plant is a 2.0-liter TDI with 204 PS (201 hp), tagged as A6 Avant 40 TDI. Next up is a 3.0-liter TDI V6 with 231 PS (228 hp), which you will acknowledge by the 45 TDI quattro badge. Finally, another 3.0-liter TDI rated at 286 PS (282 hp) will top the range as the 50 TDI quattro.
The four-cylinder unit is mated to a seven-speed S Tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission, whilst the six-cylinder engines are connected to an eight-speed Tiptronic torque-converter auto. V6 models also get standard quattro all-wheel drive (optionally available on the 2.0 TDI) and a personal-sealing center differential. Available for the 3.0 TDI models is a sports differential that regularly distributes the torque among the rear wheels while in sporty cornering. The most inexpensive model is the base A6 Avant 40 TDI, with a reported average fuel economy of 4.9-4.5 l/100 km and related CO2 emissions of 129-119 g/km (based to NEDC). The elevated fuel efficiency is to some extent expected to the mild-hybrid technology (MHEV) fitted as standard to all engines. With the V6 units, MHEV operates with 48 volts, while the four-cylinder engine employs a 12-volt electric powered system. In actual-world driving, Audi promises the mild-hybrid system helps reduce fuel usage by up to .7 l/100 km, thanks in part to a coasting function that deactivates the engine at speeds between 55 and 160 km/h (34 and 99 mph).
Later on, Audi will present gasoline engines as well, including the 45 TFSI 2.0-liter turbo-four rated at 245 PS (242 hp). There is a selection of four suspension setups available: the standard steel-spring suspension, sports suspension, suspension with damper control, and adaptive air suspension. A dynamic-all-wheel steering system is recommended, assisting minimize the 4.94-gauge (16.2-ft) long A6 Avant’s turning circle by as significantly as one meter (3.3 ft) to 11.1 yards (36.4 ft). Rear-wheel steering also helps make the big wagon far more agile on winding roads and a lot more dependable when changing lanes at high speeds. The new A6 Avant is currently available to get in Europe in standard, sport and design trim levels. Prices in Germany start from €51,650 (about $60,010) for the base 40 TDI model. The priciest version is the 50 TDI quattro in design quality, which retails from €62,850 (approximately $73,030).
