The facelifted Audi A6 that was revealed before the Paris Motor Show last year will be launched in India on August 20, 2015. We caught the A6 being tested in India earlier this yearÂ andÂ on the outside, the facelift gives the carÂ revised bumpers, grilles and side sills while the tail lights and headlights are new. These upgraded headlamps feature the Audi Matrix LED technology that debuted on the A8 L last year. The interiors will get new trims and an updated version of their Multimedia Interface (MMI).
The more significant changes were the updated Euro 6 engines. Internationally, the A6 gets the 1.8-litre TFSI ultra petrol engine in addition to the existing 2.0-litre mill and a revised 3.0-litre V6. The new 1.8 is the similar to the one in the A3 however, in the A6 it produces 190PS and hasÂ a claimed fuel economy of 17.5kmpl. The 2.0-litre diesel variants get an updated engine in two states of tuneâ€”150PS and 190PS. Similarly, the 3.0-litre V6 TDI is offered in three variantsâ€”150PS and 190PS in the mono-turbo engine and 320PS in the bi-turbo guise. The transmissions offered are six-speed manual, seven-speed S tronic and eight-speed tiptronic.
So far, only the 2.0-litre diesel engines are likelyÂ to reach our shores while we estimate that the 3.0-litre bi-turbo engines wonâ€™t make it.
