Audi has boosted its A6 line-up with the introduction of a fresh V6 engine.
The new 2.8-litre petrol engine fits into the range between the A6 3.2 FSI and the A6 2.4
It features FSI petrol direct injection and Audi's valvelift system, which apparently improves fuel consumption.
The engine develops 154 kW at 5 500 r/min and generates a constant torque of 280 Nm between 3 000 and 5 000 r/min.
Audi claims a fuel consumption figure of 8.7 litres per 100 km under standard conditions.
Against the clock, the new A6 2.8 FSI can accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h at sea level in 7.9 seconds while its top speed is an impressive 238 km/h.
The A6 range offers a high level of standard equipment which includes dual zone climate control, the MMI basic operating system, rain and light sensors, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, leather upholstery, and servotronic steering, amongst others.
Audi's full complement of optional equipment is available on the A6 2.8 FSI as well as the S-Line, Exclusive, Sports and Executive Packages.
