Next-generation Audi A6 debuts with high hopes

The eighth-generation Audi A6 sedan that was launched recently is expected to boost the German carmaker’s market share and augment its premium brand image here, according to a top Audi Korea executive Tuesday.

The new Audi A6 45TFSI Qauttro and its premium version model which were launched on Oct. 23 saw their first upgrade in eight years.

“The midsized premium sedan segment sees the fiercest competition in South Korea among imported vehicles. We expect to deliver Audi’s premium brand value through this new model,” said Audi Korea Managing Director Jeffrey Mannering.

The new A6 and its premium model have been designed to sport a slimmer facade with more space.

Both models run on 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharger engines and use the seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission, producing 252 horsepower and a maximum 37.7 kilogram-meters torque at a 11.4 kilometers-per-liter fuel efficiency.

The new Audi A6 45TFSI Quattro is priced at 66.8 million won ($57,000), and Audi A6 45TFSI Quattro Premium will cost 70.7 million won.
