With Audi rolling out its line-up of latest-generation A6 sedans, Avant wagons and sporty derivatives in Australia, get set for a regular flow of fresh metal (and lots of aluminium in Audi’s catalogue) during 2020.
The second quarter marks the launch of the entry front-drive A6 40 TFSI, a 140kW/320Nm version of the ubiquitous 2.0-litre TFSI four-cylinder, wearing the price-leading tag of $85,500 plus on-road costs.
Both use the 2.9-litre 331kW 600Nm twin turbo with 48-volt mild hybrid tech. Both will have equipment levels similar to the A6 55 TFSI. Audi says it expects to confirm the pricing of these two sports variants in January.

The muscled-up fourth-generation Audi A6 Allroad activity wagon arrives in the first half of next year with a 3.0-litre '45 TDI' turbo-diesel engine, producing 170kW and 500Nm and capable of dashing 0-100km/h in 6.7 seconds.
Consumption is 5.8-5.9L/100km and at $109,500 plus on-road costs, the new Allroad is cheaper than the outgoing model.
Mid year, stand by for the keenly-awaited introduction of the all-new RS6 Avant super-sports wagon with a mild-hybrid 4.0-litre V8 with 441kW and 800Nm – down a little on power but up all of 100Nm of torque over the previous RS6 Performance.
With all-wheel drive, it’s good for a 3.6-second dash to 100km/h.
