Audi India is going on full throttle in the Indian market. Couple of weeks back Audi launched the A7 Sportback and RS5 in India. After a long time Audi is about to replace its A6 in July with a more modern, and better looking version in Julyy, and here’ proof. Motoroids reader, Satyen Poojary and Bharat Verma has caught the spy images of the soon to be launched A6 testing in Mumbai and the car looks production ready.
The test mule clad in swirly black and white camouflage was spotted by the duo in Mumbai, somewhere close to Mahim. The twin tail-pipes at the rear, the shape of the tail-lamps, which, by the way have been camouflaged with red tape at the upper end to disguise the real shape, gave the identity of the new car away.

As we reported earlier, Audi will launch the all-new A6 in four engine options. The base model will be a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel with 175bhp and a 3.0-litre TDI churning out 242bhp. The two petrol engine options include a 2.8-litre FSI and 3.0-litre supercharged TFSI, developing 201bhp and 296bhp respectively.The top-end A6 will get the Quattro four-wheel drive system and Audi’s seven-speed, S-tronic dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
It’s important to note here that the segment where the A6 resides forms a major chunk of sales for the premium car makers. Both Mercedes E-Class and BMW 5-series are hot selling models for both the German brands. The introduction of the new A6, along with a solid marketing campaign should boost Audi sales in India substantially.
Elegance, with a dash of flamboyance is the new A6’s style USP. The car, while conforming completely to the Audi design philosophy boasts a flashy front headlamp studded with an LED cluster and an equally desirable interior.
The 2.0 TDI will be the base variant when launched, with the 3.0 TDi and TFSI sitting on the top of the lineup. The car will be priced competitively with the respective models of E-class and 5-series. Prices will start at Rs 37 lakhs and upto Rs. 47 lakhs for the top of the line.
