The new #Audi #a6avant combines dynamic design with superb everyday utility and excellent adaptability. The rear has a striking design, yet offers a flexible luggage compartment concept with 565 to 1,680 liters (20.0 – 59.3 cu ft) of capacity. The drive and suspension are designed with comfort and sportiness in mind. The standard mild hybrid system boosts efficiency while the dynamic all-wheel steering enhances maneuverability and agility. With its intuitive operation, the fully digital MMI touch response operating system offers a high level of convenience for driver and passengers.
For the additional efficiency assistant function, the adaptive cruise assist predictively factors in speed limits, bends, roundabouts and – if route guidance is active – also turnings as part of the cruise control function. Besides the predictive information in the instrument cluster, the efficiency assistant also provides haptic feedback via the active gas pedal. Together with the MHEV system, these assistance functions can help promote fuel economy.
Emergency assist enhances safety by recognizing when the driver fails to act and providing a visual, acoustic or haptic warning. If the driver fails to respond, the system takes over, turns on the hazard warning lights and automatically brings the A6 to a stop in its own lane. The system activates #Audi pre sense protection measures, such as seat belt tensioning, window closing, and automatically makes an emergency call.
Five functions support the driver in urban traffic: Crossing assist detects critical crossing traffic in front of the car; the #Audi pre sense 360° system detects collision hazards; rear cross traffic assist monitors slow reversing, such as exiting a parallel parking space. Exit warning and lane change warning supplement the package.
These functions are managed in an #Audi high-end module, which is fitted in the new #a6avant as a standard: the central driver assistance controller, which continuously computes a differentiated image of the car’s surroundings. To do this, depending on the equipment level, it uses data from as many as five radar sensors, five cameras, twelve ultrasonic sensors and the laser scanner.
Efficient and powerful – all engines with mild hybrid technology
All engines are fitted as standard with a mild hybrid system, which further increases comfort and efficiency and can reduce fuel consumption in real-world driving. The belt alternator starter, the heart of the MHEV system, recovers up to 12 kW with the 48 V system during braking and feeds the electricity into a separate lithium-ion battery. With the engine switched off, the new #Audi A6 Avant can coast between 55 and 160 km/h (34.2 – 99.4 mph); the start-stop already kicks in at 22 km/h (13.7 mph).
The #Audi connect portfolio offers numerous online services, including several Car-to-X services. The optional #Audi connect key locks and unlocks the new A6 Avant via an Android smartphone. The myAudi app connects the car with the owner’s smartphone. The #Audi phone box supports telephony with the highly convenient Voice-over-LTE protocol. The Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System delivers fascinating 3D sound through a total of 19 loudspeakers, including in the rear.
