In the market for new large luxury car that uses 4.4L/100km and has 400Nm of torque? Meet the new Audi A6 Ultra.
The A6 Ultra is available in sedan and Avant (wagon) body styles, powered by a 2.0-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder with 120kW of power and the aforementioned 400Nm of torque from 1750-3000rpm. Audi claims an acceleration time of 8.2 seconds for the sedan and 8.5sec for the wagon, with the sedan sipping the headline-grabbing 4.4L/100km and the Avant using a claimed 4.6L.
It’s unclear whether the car will be sold in Australia in both sedan and wagon form, but what’s certain is that it will be fitted with a seven-speed dual-clutch S tronic gearbox as standard.
There are also a number of A4 and A5 Ultra variants – all of which utilise a 2.0-litre turbo diesel in varied states of tune, consuming between 3.9L and 4.4L/100km – but those cars won’t be sold here as they are only available with manual transmissions.
