Review of Audi A6 2009
It’s a calorie-free practice that Audi has more models and engine options than Baskin Robbins has cream color and flavor. There’s also a quarter of Audi’s range being diesel and there’s even a choice of five engines ranging from a 1.9-liter clam to a 4.2-liter stone tablet. So it is strange that Audi introduces a 2.7-liter engine to separate the 2-liter and 3-liter diesel engines. Interested to do? Because it’s not just about size.
Powertrain and economy
2.7 is Audi’s latest turbo-diesel engine. Like the 3-liter, it is a V6 but has low-friction engine components and a low-drag steering and oil pump system. Audi claims fuel economy of up to 15% and a 2.7-liter turbo-diesel engine in the A6 at 6.4 liters / 100km – quite good for a big saloon despite testing in this city. recorded a more modest 8.2 liters / 100km.
If you’re happy with that – and can afford the $ 84,500 entry fee – you’ll be even more pleased to know you’ve saved a decent sales tax. Thanks to the A6 2.7’s low fuel thirst below 7 l / 100km, the 33% Luxury Car Tax is priced at $ 75,000, not a thirsty rival of $ 57,180. In fact, A6 2.7 buyers pay taxes for $ 9500, not $ 17,320. Personally, it was a tax on the tax and didn’t even exist but now it’s written and never deleted. But it will be the last thing on your mind after getting the A6 on the road.
This is a big car that thinks it’s a small car and compared to the BMW 5-Series 530d, it is said to be more comfortable, made better, easier to operate and cheaper. Beneficial for BMW, the 5-Series handles better and is more sporty.
Audi is a more saloon. 2.7 only appears in front-wheel drive versions with continuously variable (automatic) gearbox. It is more suitable for people who want a luxury car with superior manufacturing quality, superior range (this will go up to 1250km in the country) and plenty of room and features. If you want a sports car, look elsewhere.
The A6 will run along the water but still as benign as a small car in the city. The handling is very good. Not as excellent as the 530d mainly because Audi has its diesel engine towards the front axle and so – although there’s a lot of work including alloy bonnet and fenders – is a heavy nose to the corner. narrow.
This will not involve anyone, but the most demanding driver. For the rest, please take from me that this is an accurate, comfortable and confident five-seater car. A lot of the appeal of it is easy to use and simple controls. Park brakes are electronic and include only a postage stamp size control button.
The central control unit provides access to a range of vehicle operations to fine-tune it for drivers. But it has built-in buttons so finding everything is quick. The rear seats are split and folded down so that long objects can be stored, thus adding a flexible element to the vehicle. And while we’re in the big boot, there’s a full size spare wheel.
The cabin is also upholstered in wood and leather and the front seats have electric adjustment. It’s a top-class car and shows that diesel engines really fit the luxury car sector.
