Both the A6 and A7 Sportback come with a high performance 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder petrol engine working alongside Audi’s legendary quattro permanent all-wheel drive for added assurance and stability on the tarmac.
The Audi A6 2.0 TFSI quattro takes its place between the entry-level A6 1.8 TFSI and the range-topping Audi A6 3.0 TFSI quattro, standing out with 18-inch 10-spoke V-design wheels, its signature Singleframe grille, LED headlights and taillights with dynamic indicators.
The A7 Sportback on the other hand provides a distinctively progressive silhouette with its long bonnet, muscular waistline and sloping roofline; making it a more accessible option for owners looking to combine the sporty appeal of a coupé, the comfort of a sedan and the practicality of an Avant (station wagon).
Both the direct fuel injection engines develop a total of 252 hp and 370 Nm of torque between the range of 1,600 and 4,500 rpm and is mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission, delivering power through Audi’s famed quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. Zero to 100 km/h takes just 6.5 seconds in the A6 sedan while the A7 Sportback five-door coupe does it in 6.7 seconds.

This is further enhanced with similar electrical adjustments on its alluring sports seats with four-way lumbar support in the front and cosseting rear seats, all done up in sumptuous Alcantara-leather combination.
