In this article, we discuss the upcoming arrival of the Audi A6 Avant. From what has been released and discussed so far, the car looks like it could be something very special.

Can the newer version better the current model? That would be quite a remarkable achievement if it does. Usually when we hear of new models coming out, the improvements over the old one are highlighted. What have Audi said about the new A6 Avant? It’s supposedly a lot lighter and more spacious. At the moment, the current version accounts for 43% of Audi’s UK sales. How can Audi improve on one of their biggest successes in the UK market?

There will be a choice of six different engines. The two petrols and four diesels will all boast direct fuel injection technology.

A 3.0 TDI, a 2.8 Litre FSI and a 3.0 TFSI comprise of some of the choices. The most popular choice is expected to the 2.0 TDI version. This particular model will produce around 174bhp, achieve 56.5mpg and 132/km C02 emissions.

There also a wide range of gearbox transmissions to choose from. There will be a six-speed manual, an eight speed automatic along with a seven-speed dual-clutch plus more.

Every new car from every manufacturer is being made greener and greener, which is the direction car companies must follow if they are to survive. Some of the new Audi A6 Avant models are said to weigh around 20% less than the version out now. The lighter the car, the less drag there is which means better eco-friendliness along with improved fuel efficiency. There will be start/stop technology installed (which seems to be coming as standard on many newer cars) which will particularly help the car’s fuel efficiency, which is said to be improved by around 18%. The FSI version however may focus towards more of providing a better and more thrilling driving experience rather than being green.

The list of improvements is endless. Audi have been clever in not completely renovating the car, but keeping some of the features that the made the original great and simply touching them up.

Will fans be disappointed by this the new Audi A6 Avant? We don’t think so.
