The Audi A6 Returns for 2020; Prices Start at P 4.5 Million


The BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class better watch out: the all-new 2020 Audi A6 is now in the country, boasting enhanced sportiness, comfort, and digitalization.

An “ambassador” of the new Audi design language, the A6 has a truly elegant design with a taut roofline and short overhangs. It’s the roomiest and widest in the mid-sized luxury sedan segment. Upfront, it has a wide, low-set Singleframe grille with air inlets and matrix LED headlights with DRLs on both sides.

On its side, a contour stretches across the top section of the sheet metal body, which starts as an edge in the hood and ends at the rear as a separating edge. In the associated lower section, pronounced aerodynamic elements emphasize the side view of the vehicle. The C-pillar is much flatter and the entire window line much more dynamic than before.



At the rear, a chrome strip emphasizes the impression of width of the A6 and provides a link between the two rear lights. The wedge-shaped rear lights, which end externally in vertical segments, also contribute to the impression of width. They are part of the rear sculpture and with their aerodynamic finishing touches that attest to the Sedan’s high-tech character.

The interior creates a futuristic, minimalist feel; thanks to the sleek instrument panel with a technical black-panel design dominates that impressively combines form and function. The driver and front passenger experience a generous space in which the architecture fuses seamlessly with the user interface. In front of the driver is Audi’s 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit with a high-resolution display.

Meanwhile, the center console and the all-digital Multi Media Interface (MMI) touch response displays are angled slightly toward the driver. The MMI touch with haptic feedback response system, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, provides intuitive operation and even more personalization. When switched off, the 10.1-inch screen top display is incorporated almost invisibly into the dark decorative surface. Meanwhile, the bottom 8.6-inch display, located in the console in the center tunnel, is used for the climate control, the convenience and vehicle functions as well as the text input. Ambient interior lighting and Bang & Olufsen 3D Premium Surround Sound complete the package.



Under the hood, the all-new Audi A6 is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline engine. Fitted with Mild Hybrid Engine Technology and mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, it generates a total of 245 horsepower and 370 Nm of torque. Matching this capable engine is an extremely comfortable ride brought by the upgraded wheel suspension made extensively from lightweight aluminum, paired with 18-inch cast aluminum wheels. The suspension combines smooth ride comfort and unshakable stability with enhanced sportiness.

The all-new 2020 Audi A6 starts at around P 4.5 million and is available for viewing at all Audi showrooms nationwide: Greenhills, Global City, Alabang, and SM Seaside Cebu.
