Audi has long prided itself on offering the utmost in luxury while keeping prices just a few ticks below the Mercedes-Benz and BMW models on the market. In the midsize sedan market, though, it lost its hold as the base four-cylinder-powered Mercedes E-Class and BMW 5 Series models undercut the A6’s $58,900 base price. That’s about to change, and here’s how.
The 2019 Audi A6 will gain a new variant powered by the brand’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This unit will push 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and out to all four wheels for a 6.1-second 0-to-60 run.
Though it will be a new base trim, the A6 2.0 TFSI will still have plenty of standard features. The standard goodies will include LED headlights, high-beam assist, lane-departure warning, 19-inch wheels, three-zone climate control, eight-way heated front seats, leather seating, contrast stitching, MMI navigation, Audi smartphone interface, the MMI touch response system, and more.
Options also will be plentiful and will include a heated steering wheel, four-zone climate control, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, ambient lighting, 20-inch wheels, Audi virtual cockpit, 4G LTE, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic assist, and more.
The 2019 Audi A6 2.0 TFSI will start from $54,100 in its Premium trim, making it $4,800 cheaper than the current base A6. Those looking for more features can opt for the $57,800 Premium Plus trim.
