Sportiness meets efficiency – three new S-models from the Audi A6 and A7 series offer customers in Europe the ideal performance models for the long haul. For the first time, Audi has combined a V6-TDI engine with an electric powered compressor and a 48-volt primary electrical system. The S sport suspension with damping control, dynamic all-wheel steering and the ceramic brake system tick all the boxes for dynamic cornering and deceleration. The striking design with the sophisticated looks of an S model lends these sporty full-size models particular presence.
Torque peaking at 700 newton-meters constantly available on demand to the driver across an engine speed range of 2,500 to 3,100 rpm is the ideal basis for performance-minded customers in Europe. The S TDI models offer high driving dynamics and efficiency – an especially attractive combination for long-distance driving. With the S6 and S7 TDI models Audi systematically takes the successful drive concept of the SQ7 TDI (combined fuel consumption 7.6 – 7.2 l/100 km). For the first time, Audi’s engineers have paired an electric powered compressor with a 48-volt primary electrical system.
This takes the three-liter V6 TDI’s total power output to 257 kW (349 hp). Power transmission is handled by the eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission, which always operates in tandem with quattro permanent all-wheel drive.
