Audi’s latest spot for the new A6 is a fairly good one. It’s about a little girl who thinks her dad is an alien. She can prove it too. The guy talks a weird language, eats weird stuff, he even walks weirdly. On top of all this, he drives a space ship – the Audi A6 – according to her daughter. So Audi is kinda admitting the A6 is a weird car for weird people. They’re right about the spaceship bit though. The A6 has more gadgets than the recently retired space shuttle.
The sedan is 4.92 meters (16.14 ft) long and 1.87 meters (6.14 ft) wide, but just 1.46 meters (4.79 ft) high – sporty proportions that are unrivaled by the competition. The long engine hood, the low, sweeping roofline and the prominent lines on the flanks create a dynamic overall appearance. Optional LED headlights emphasize the striking expression at the front.
The most powerful unit in the range is the 2.0 TDI. In conjunction with a manual transmission, it requires on average just 4.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (48.00 US mpg) and emits just 129 g CO2 per km (207.61 g/mile). The Audi A6 hybrid will be available from Audi at a later date. Serving up 180 kW (245 hp) of system performance, its 2.0 TFSI plus electric motor will achieve efficient and sporty acceleration with an average fuel consumption of only 6.2 liters per 100 km (37.94 US mpg).
