If you want more power, then the next step is the 2.0 TFSI
unit featuring 190PS and an innovative combustion process.
Team-bhp, an automotive news magazine, has revealed details of the eighth-generation Audi A6 45 TFSI
from spy shots.
But for its price - PS40,965 - the inoffensively styled TFSI
offers buckets of power accompanied by modest fuel costs.
The 1.4-litre TFSI
with cylinder-on-demand technology brings 150bhp and the option of either manual or S tronic twin-clutch automatic transmission.
As an alternative to the six-speed manual transmission, Audi will also offer its S tronic dual clutch transmission with seven speeds for all engines except the 1.0 TFSI
. From summer next year a 2.0 TFSI
petrol engine with quattro all-wheel-drive and S tronic transmission will be added, and then it will also be possible to combine the 150bhp TDI with quattro drive.
Lots of changes have been made on the petrol engine front, the range now beginning with a downsized 115PS 1.0-litre TFSI
unit that, nonetheless, still generates a useful 200Nm of torque.
There's been a concerted drive to efficiency in this latest A1, and nowhere is that more clearly demonstrated than in the replacement of the 1.2 TFSI
with the 1.0 TFSI
This engine was originally launched in this car with a 140PS version of Audi's 1.4-litre TFSI
powerplant but that unit's now been teased out to 150PS.
Team it with the quite brilliant 1.4 TFSI
COD petrol powerplant and it merits a ve-star verdict.
Powering the first UK versions will be a choice of two TFSI
petrol engines or a TDI diesel which offer more power, better economy and, in most cases, lower emissions than before.
For the Middle East the following models are available: A6 35 TFSI
(190 hp); A6 35 FSI quattro (220 hp); A6 40 TFSI
(252 hp); A6 50 TFSI
quattro (333 hp); S6 TFSI
quattro (450 hp); RS 6 Avant TFSI
quattro (560 hp);
Its drive system combines a 150 hp 1.4 TFSI
engine and a 75 kW electric motor.
