Audi A6 2015 Model From RM324,900, In Showrooms Now
Audi Malaysia has thoroughly updated the A6 sedan. Two new engines, transmissions and headlights, plus a new infotainment system make this luxury business sedan more efficient, more powerful, more attractive and more sophisticated than ever.
Sharp lines, emphasized horizontals, athletically taut surfaces where the design of the A6 models epitomizes precision and sporty elegance. It was carefully honed as part of the model refresh, with changes made to the Singleframe grille, the headlights, air inlets, bumpers, side sills, rear lights and tailpipes. Audi optionally offers headlights with LED technology or Matrix LED technology, combined with dynamic turn signals.
Thanks to its intelligent composite construction concept, the body is extremely rigid and safe. Numerous components of aluminum and hot-shaped steel form the backbone of a systematic lightweight construction concept. The new A6 1.8 TFSI priced at RM324,900.00 has a curb weight (without driver) of just 1,535 kilograms. Vibrational comfort is excellent; cabin noise is extremely low.
The sinewy style of the exterior is echoed in the car’s spacious interior. Every detail documents the uncompromising level of quality familiar to Audi drivers. Elegant colors and carefully selected materials emphasize the cultivated atmosphere.
The new A6 models are also way ahead of the competition when it comes to infotainment, with configurations ranging up to MMI navigation plus with MMI touch. The top-of-the-line navigation system with the power-retractable eight‑inch monitor is now based on a new technology platform that uses the fast Tegra 30 graphics chip from Audi’s partner Nvidia.
The range of driver assistance systems is also extremely attractive, topped by adaptive cruise control with stop & go function. Audi side assist, which uses radar to check behind the car when changing lanes, works closely together with Audi active lane assist, which prevents unintended lane changes. The night vision assistant now includes even more functions, and the Audi pre sense basic safety system is standard. Important information can be called up via the optional head‑up display.
Extensively updated: the engine lineup
The engine lineup for the new A6 includes three TFSI units with output ranging between 190hp and 333hp.
