Saad Buzwair Automotive has launched the new Audi A6 executive sedan in Qatar with a choice of two V6 engines. The 204hp 2.8 FSI and the 300hp 3.0 TFSI models both feature the new S tronic transmission and latest generation of quattro four-wheel drive.

“With its light body, sporty chassis and a wide array of new assistance and multimedia systems, the new A6 features groundbreaking solutions in every area of technology,” said Saad Buzwair Automotive general manager Mostapha Alkhatib“The new Audi A6 is already the seventh chapter of an extraordinary success story,” he explained, while pointing out that it sold seven million units worldwide since the first launch as the Audi 100.

The design of the new Audi A6 embodies athleticism and elegance. The sedan is 4.92m long, 1.87m wide, and 1.46m high. The long engine hood, the low, sweeping roofline and the prominent lines on the flanks create a dynamic overall appearance. The Xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights or optional full LED headlights emphasise the striking expression at the front.The roomy interior of the new Audi A6 echoes the sinewy style of the exterior. The salient element is the “wrap-around” -- an inlay encircling the driver and the front-seat passenger.

The interior features an innovative layered-wood veneer. The Audi A6 comes with extensive standard equipment including the latest Multi Media Interface (MMI) operating system, a multifunction leather steering wheel, the Audi parking system plus as well as a glass sunroof. The electric front seats with memory function for the driver can be equipped with ventilation and massage functions as an option. The new Audi A6 was specially developed for the Middle East region. The four-zone automatic air conditioning system is a salient feature.

As of now the MMI is also available in Arabic including all menu points, navigation maps and voice instructions as well as MMI touch handwriting recognition.Audi also offers a variety of high-tech options: a head-up display, Audi active lane assist, Audi park assist, the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System and the MMI touch. The new adaptive cruise control regulates speed and distance to the vehicle ahead and if necessary breaks the vehicle to a full standstill.

The Audi pre-sense safety system is in many situations able to reduce accidents and their consequences, or even prevent them altogether. The latest generation quattro permanent all-wheel drive guarantees supreme traction, stability and dynamic response. Both the engines make use of important technologies from the brand’s modular efficiency platform -- the energy recovery system and the start-stop function. Throughout the entire model line, fuel consumption in the A6 has decreased by up to 21% compared to the previous model.

In Qatar, the Audi A6 is available in the 2.8 FSI quattro and the 3.0 TFSI Quattro versions, respectively. Both models come with five years service and three years warranty as a standard.
