As always, Naijauto.com caught the latest updates from the top automakers in the world and in this one we will be discussing the updates from Audi and their new Audi S6 and S7 that have made their official and first internet debut.
This debut featured the Audi S6 Avant, Audi S6 and Audi S7 with turbocharged V6 engines thereby making the turbocharged V8 engine featured in the old models gone from the menu. Even though Dieselgate in 2015 and much rumours from 8 years ago all had it that the coming Audi S6 and Audi S7 would be getting a diesel engine choice, that obviously didn’t happen now.
This same rumour still popped up again just last year but now that Audi is mostly back on track, diesel engine joins the S game: the European and some other few international markets now get the all-new Audi S6, S6 Avant and S7 all powered by a 3.0L V6 TDI engine with a 349hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
Here comes the new 2019 Audi S6 TDI
This is the same diesel benefits as that on the SQ5 with the same electric turbo compressors as well as a 48V mild hybrid system, but the same thing too goes for the gasoline engine featured versions for the first time in the brand’s history. The lag is cut out with a compressor which comes to life in just 250ms and adds as much as 2.4 bar of boost which means a 5-seconds acceleration to 62mph in the S6 TDI, 5.1 secs in the S6 Avant TDI and the S7 TDI model. The mild-hybrid setup’s belt alternator starter of these new trio charges the featured 8 kilowatts/hour battery that is under the truck for the usual stop-start functionality and can even coast for as much as 40 seconds.
Sneak peek into the interior of the new Audi S7
Taking a closer look at all these three new vehicles, we could see that the standard dynamic suspension helps lower the ride heights on all of them which results in a 0.4 inches ride height on the Audi S7, as well as 0.8 inches on the Audi S6 and Audi S6 Avant. The Torque split comes at a 40:60 front-to-rear right out of the box, but up to 70% can be actually sent to the bow and an 85% could be sent to the stern.
Other notable features include;
- Brake-based torque vectoring through 6-piston callipers right on the front wheels
- Optional rear-wheel steering and optional rear differential
- 20inches diameter standard rims and 21-inches optional ones together with foam-filled tires which helps cut down road noises.
- Optional 3mode adaptive air suspension
The new 2019 Audi S6 Avant can almost fill up for an SUV in usage
Each of the Trio is dressed up in a more traditional S-denoting fare-like aluminium look with dark chrome trim elements from their grille to the diffuser. They also have aluminium exterior mirror caps as well as quad tailpipes too. The S-badging emphasizes the standard Alcantara and the brushed aluminium.
These three new models from Audi doesn’t look too bad overall.
