Audi's executive sedan is all business.
Audi started at the top of its sedan when it began refreshing its lineup. From the ultra-luxurious A8 to the fan-favorite A7, Audi now finds itself at the A6—it's bread-and-butter executive sedan. At Geneva, Audi pulled the sheet off its new, eighth-generation 2019 A6, which it had already revealed in late February. There's been no word yet on its engine lineup for the United States, but it will get four-wheel steering that the automaker claims will tighten up its turning circle by over 3 feet.
Beneath the 2019 Audi A6's new slightly larger sheet metal will sit a new 3.0-liter V6 that ditches supercharging in favor of turbocharging to produce 340 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque. That power is transmitted to all four wheels as standard via Audi's seven-speed S tronic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. A smaller 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine will also make its way to the United States, though you definitely won't see a diesel make it to these shores. Inside, the range-topping model includes the A7’s 10.1-inch MMI infotainment screen, as well as an 8.6-inch display used for controlling the climate control and other convenience functions and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with Audi’s virtual cockpit.
The all-new 2019 Audi A6 will be built at the company's Neckarsulm plant and has a European on-sale date of this June. Expect first deliveries to the United States toward the end of the year. For a deeper dive into the new Audi A6, check out our 2019 Audi A6 First Look.
