Walkaround of the Audi A6 3.0 TDI Avant S-line package:

In the rivalry the Mercedes Benz E-class, BMW the Audi A6, the latter one is the oldest on the having been introduced in But how well does it fare the newer competition?

Audi’s is tailored around simplicity, no and controversial lines, but smooth and yet elegant. By trying to keep the simple, Audi is trying to be friend, and to appeal to as many tastes possible.

But still Audi wants to a modern image, and the 2008 has brought this in the form of in the headlamp units. Some minor changes in the design of the and fog lights have been but they are only noticeable to the eye.

This Ibis Audi A6 has been fitted the optional S-line package, for the exterior and interior. It comes 18-inch alloys (not on the pictures, those are 17-inch tires), S-line badging and right, a lowered suspension and front- and rear bumpers.

2. Engine, Transmission handling

engines are available on the Audi A6, in review the 2.7 TDI and 3.0 TDI. The main of both engines is the displacement, the characteristics feel the same the 2.7 TDI is slower at high speeds. But the point of engines noise and feeling, they are similar.

to the 3.0 TDI with the Quattro all-wheel system. Engine noise to be somewhat higher then in the BMW E60, while the engine itself also is more getting annoying when However, the 240hp is excellent, is always enough power to master any situation, at both and low speeds.

But only power is not the car should also be able to put it on the The Quattro-system ensures that power is transferred into while normal FWD or RWD cars have its power cut by the electronic However, the Quattro-system does fuel consumption and reduce performance.

All the Audi A6 that are with the Quattro-system have a automatic transmission (6-speed), the front-wheel-drive A6 are fitted with a automatic transmission (6-speed). is a shiftable CVT with preprogramed to immulate a regular transmission gears, while the Tiptronic is a standard automatic transmission. of the automatic transmission are almost not only the change in revs of the lets the driver know gears are being changed. to BMW or MB, the Tiptronic transmission is a bit slower to to the drivers input.

Handling of the Audi A6 is said to be in the comfort of Mercedes Benz, and the of BMW. A compromise is a trade-off in neither side is perfect, and in case the A6 lacks comfort yet has not the driving pleasure as the BMW. It is heavy and detached from the resulting in a more passive experience. However, even the suspension of the S-line package is too uncomfortable, so the car is suited for long-distance

But the handling is not only influenced by the Audi offers both the and a front-wheel-drive version of the A6. As the car already a strain on the front axle, the are not able to cope with the of power in excess of 170hp. driving fast corners or quickly, a heavy strain is put on the axle. This results in a handling, which can be felt in the wheel, while also a tendency to understeer.

#65279;3. Technical Features

The build in the interior of the Audi A6 is one of the best of its it looks very solid, and very high-grade. Although the is modern and sophisticated, the amount of colors (red, white and and the buttons don’t quite it the tidy appearance of the BMW.

Sport seats are included in the package, and this A6 had also the black Milano leather. position is excellent, and even longer journeys the driver has no problems whatsoever.

Although offers SD-card slots for music. As SD-cards an unusual to store music on, the Audi Interface does offer the to connect a USB-stick or iPod. that do not have the Audi Interface can be retrofitted with the please contact your dealer for more information and the tag.

Inextricably linked to a interface is the stereo system, Audi A6 being equipped the optional Audi Sound For the more demanding listener system is sufficient, it has enough to play more demanding at higher volumes. But the expert might want to opt for a more system.

One of its largest in its class, the space in the A6 is more then though the seats cannot flat. The load-area fixing kit is the tool to secure any luggage swerving around the boot. As are usually not the cleanest objects, the boot lid is a useful and relatively option to open and close the without getting your dirty, therefore deserving consideration when ordering.

A compromise does the Audi A6, in the respective fields the BMW is sportier while the Mercedes E-class is more comfortable. But this mean that the A6 will lose out these I do not think so, many people are looking for just such a Having a modern yet reserved there will be no offensive from the design, the car stays in the and will not raise too much attention.

However, the build of the car is not a compromise, it is a very high car that is on the same level as its if not one of the best. The interior is of the same quality while it is laid out logically.

When it comes to the and engine, the car is almost on the same as the competition, the main drawback the FWD that is not able to turn the onto the road. The Quattro does solve this, but comes with an increase in and fuel consumption.

In short, the Audi A6 is a very car that does justice to the places in a premium brand However, as a compromise it does its small penalties when it to the drivetrain. But if these outweigh the benefits one derives from car, it certainly is a good
