WATCH: Diesel power - Audi's luxury S7 Sportback

2019-06-19 10:15

For the first time the executive class Audi S Series models are welcoming TDI power into their ranks – the new Audi S6 and S7 join the recently reinstated SQ5 in offering a torque-rich V6 TDI engine that fully delivers on the promise of the red rhombus-backed S badge but is also in it for the long haul. 

They combine a 48-volt mild-hybrid system with an electronic supercharger and a 3-litre V6 turbodiesel engine to generate 700Nm.

Thanks to an electrically powered compressor working with a 48-volt primary electrical system, the new MHEV models combine characteristic TDI economy with exceptional throttle response which can be fully exploited with the help of S sport suspension with damping control, dynamic all-wheel steering and the option of ceramic disc-assisted braking.
