Audi A6 3.0 TDI quattro S-line

Autocar has just published the first road test report with the new Audi A6 in English. A must read therefore!

And what it also had was a cabin of quite breathtaking richness and quality. Audi’s surpassed even its own lofty standards in this department: materials feel robust yet tactile, fit-and-finish is apparently flawless. Even the sports seats are generously comfortable, while the MMI controls and instruments are easy to make sense of.

The car’s V6 engine starts with a gentle shudder; once you’re cruising you’ll barely hear it. That’s partly because Audi’s twin-clutch gearbox is quick to change up, keeping rpm low whenever possible, but mainly because Audi’s done a stunning job of insulating this car’s powertrain. Wind insulation’s very well suppressed too, thanks to a low drag co-efficient of just 0.26.
