Audi wants to make the current A6 more attractive for clients who want a limousine, but not paying so much. Audi announced a mid-model year refresh for the entry-point to the A6 model line, the 2021 A6 Sport 45 TFSI.

The arrival of this new variant brings notable standard equipment and package enhancements. The A6 Sport maintains benchmark connectivity services, MMI Navigation and advanced driver assistance systems.

The new A6 Sport 45 TFSI generates 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, delivering greater value to customers with an increase of 13 horsepower over the previous model. The A6 Sport is equipped with a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and quattro with ultra-technology that balances performance and efficiency. Standard equipped with progressive steering, the sporty steering ratio becomes more direct as the steering angle increases, making the mid-size sedan more maneuverable.

Standard Black optic exterior package brings Black optic grille, air intakes in black, black mirror housings, and black high-gloss exterior window trim. Fine Grain Ash natural wood inlays replace Walnut natural wood inlays, and a black headliner is now standard.

The A6 with 2.0-liter engine offers a robust level of standard equipment including standard three-zone automatic climate control, heated eight-way power front seats with four-way power lumbar adjustment and leather seating surfaces with contrast stitching on seats and dashboard.

Available second generation Audi virtual cockpit helps to enhance the infotainment and navigating experience through the large satellite imagery or 3-D city maps (requires Audi connect PRIME) supported with 4G LTE.
