The sports sedan, intensified. This is where performance escalates quickly and how the rules of engagement have been rewritten.
The 2.9-liter TFSI® biturbo V6 engine places two turbochargers in the “V” of the V6 engine, creating a shorter pathway for the exhaust gases and helping improve the turbocharger's response. An electric compressor powered by the 48V MHEV system helps speed the exhaust ﬂow further, to reduce turbo lag. All of which help express the peak 444 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque through a broad range of engine RPMs, and power the S6 to a sprinting 4.5-second 0–60 time.
Front- and rear-wheel steering systems work in tandem to help deliver agile handling in corners and stability during lane changes at highway speeds. The rear wheels turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels to reduce the turning radius in tight turns and the same direction to help enhance stability at highway speeds.
The available Adaptive S Sport suspension has electronically activated dampers to increase pressures and help counter body roll and improve handling control or reduce pressure to help absorb road imperfections. Through the Audi drive select menu, the driver can select the setting they prefer.
The touchscreens feature haptic feedback that sends a pulse to the fingertips to confirm your selection. MMI® touch response also features handwriting recognition so you can write instead of typing on a keyboard.
Easily accessible and customizable, the vibrant Audi virtual cockpit display delivers important driving information at a glance.
A front-mounted camera is designed to monitor activity such as vehicle and pedestrian traffic in front of the vehicle and alert the driver with audible warnings.
