2012 Audi A6 Avant

Here it is ! the latest generation 2012 Audi A6 Avant, a model which will once again set the standard for business class station wagons, unveiled today by the German automaker in Berlin.

Measuring 4.93 m in length (16.17 ft), a low roof line, flat D pillars, LED headlights and taillights and a luggage compartment with a capacity of 565 litres (19.95 cu ft) / 1,680 litres (59.33 cu ft) with the rear seats folded, the 2012 Audi A6 Avant is most certainly the way to go when interested in combining style with practicality.

Due to extensive use of aluminium, the new Audi A6 Avant weights around 70 Kg (154.32 lb) less than before, with the 2.0-litre TDI version for example, tipping the scale at just 1,650 Kg (3,615 lb). 

Engine choices available for the 2012 Audi A6 Avant will include a total of 6 direct fuel injection units, out of which two are petrol and four are diesels (one four cylinder and five V6 powerplants).

The range opener is the 2.0-litre TDI producing 177 HP (130 kW) and requiring just 5.0-litres of fuel per 100 Km (47.04 US mpg). CO2 emissions for this version are 132 grammes per Km, the equivalent of 212.43 g/mile.

Next there are three 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged TDIs, developing either 204 HP (150 kW), 245 HP (180 kW) or 313 HP (230 kW). The most powerful of of these three will enable the 2012 Audi A6 Avant to reach 100 Km/h (62 mph) from a stand still in 5.4 seconds while the maximum top speed is limited at 250 Km/h (155 mph). 

Moving on the the petrol engines, customers will be able to choose between the 2.8-litre TSI which produces 204 HP (150 kW) or the 3.0-litre TFSI rated at 300 HP (220 kW).

All the engines mentioned above will come with Start Stop technology, energy recuperation and the thermal management system which quickly brings the coolant and motor oil up to optimal temperatures, as standard. 

Depending on the engine the 2012 Audi A6 Avant will be available with a 6-speed manual, a continuously variable multitronic or a 7-speed S tronic transmission, and expect for the 2.0-litre TDI which will only be available with front wheel drive, the rest of the V6 powered models will be available with the company's trademark all wheel drive quattro system either as standard or as an option.

The 2012 Audi A6 Avant price will start at 40,850 Euros and availability on key European markets will begin in late summer 2011.
