So the other day I decide to buy myself a new Television. Now, how difficult a task can that be? Walking into the nearest electronic superstore, I soon found out it was going to be a task that was much more complicated than it seemed. With options like Plasma, LCD and LED and then even more sub-options to chose from the technology mentioned it couldn’t have got any more confusing. It’s pretty much the same if you are looking to buy an Audi with a whole barrage of models and variants to choose from. Thankfully, if it’s the new A6 you are looking for, you have “just” 4 variants to choose from, one of which is the 2.0 TDI featured here.
Clean, crisp lines
That pretty much defines the way the new A6 looks like. While the typical subtleness which is a characteristic of all Audi’s is clearly seen, the A6 is the perfect blend of athleticism and elegance. Ben Johnson in a tux is pretty much the best example I can think of. As for differentiating it between its 3 litre petrol and the 3 litre diesel siblings there is none and the 2.0 TDI looks exactly the same, which is a good thing since even though one buys a cheaper variant he or she does not have to compromise on looks.
The best of space and luxury
If you are looking to be chauffer driven, then the Audi’s opulence is sure to get you hooked. The walnut brown interiors look and feel rich. There’s acres of legroom for you to sit back and relax as vents on the B-pillar and on the rear climate control console regulate the temperature according to your needs. If you prefer to get behind the wheels yourself, this Audi will pamper you and how. The first thing you notice as you take charge is the “Wrap-Around”, an inlay encircling the driver and the co-passenger. What that is, is that the whole console is designed around the driver and the co-passenger thereby offering the best possible ergonomics.
Everything feels brilliant and the instrument binnacle is probably one of the best in its class offering a clear read and all the possible information you could ask for. There is also the latest generation MMI or Multi Media Interface which is pretty simple to use with the MMI touch also available as an option. Loaded with equipment coupled with brilliant quality this Audi sure knows how to pamper its occupants.
