The station wagon received touch panels instead of buttons, as well as advanced driver assistance systems
The company Audi has introduced a new generation A6 Avant wagon. Sales of the car in Europe will begin in the near future. The main competitors of the novelty, as before, will be the BMW 5-Series Touring and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate.
The design of the car repeats the sedan of the same name, which was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018. The versatile vehicle has a spacious luggage compartment, the volume of which is 565 liters. With the rear seats folded, this figure grows to 1680 liters.
The station wagon is built on the MLB EVO platform, like all new Audi models. The car has a powerful, aggressive front. In addition, the A6 was 12 mm longer than its predecessor. The car features massive wheel arches, new LED optics and other bumpers. Almost all physical buttons disappeared in the salon – the main control of the air conditioner, the on-board computer and the navigation system was transferred to the touch panels.
The novelty was also equipped with advanced driver assistance systems. In particular, the wagon knows how to park independently, and also to keep the given lane.
Technical characteristics of the A6 are still kept secret. The company only said that all the engines of the novelty will receive the Mild hybrid system and will work together with the all-wheel drive system. The transmissions are a seven-speed robotic transmission S tronic or an eight-speed automatic transmission.
For the station wagon, four types of suspension were prepared: from the most conventional to the pneumatic. In addition, Audi will offer a sports suspension and suspension with the ability to adjust the rigidity of shock absorbers.
Later Audi promises to present one more modification – A6 Allroad.
