The new DS3, customise every feature to suit your style
We'd never deny that the latest Audi A6 is a brilliant executive sedan but it's one that's flying under the radar of buyers in the segment.
One of the big reasons for it being so underrated, in our opinion, is because next to more charismatic designs like that of the Jaguar XF, the A6 looks a little too vanilla.
Now Audi South Africa has added some spice in the form of a previously optional S line package that is now standard on the A6, as well as the Q7 SUV that's clearly suffering the same fate as the A6 but in this case due to its age.
Audi says that in some instances, the package equates to more than R40 000 worth of additional goodies.
In the case of the A6, the package treats customers to the full S line exterior styling package and offers a choice between 18- and 19-inch quattro-style alloy wheels. The body kit comprises bespoke front and rear bumpers with platinum grey spoiler lip and diffuser insert as well as side ventilation grilles.
Similar sporty transformations are also in order for Q7 customers and this package also brings a high-gloss black grille to the party.
The new cars will be ready for the picking at Audi dealers from mid-August and the rest of the package remains as before.
In the A6 you get to choose between five turbocharged engines, with the petrol range including a 132kW/320Nm 2-litre and 220kW/440Nm 3-litre and the diesel line-up offering the same capacity choices but with output levels of 130kW/380Nm (2.0), 150kW/400Nm and 180kW/500Nm.
Opt for the Q7 and your options include 3-litre and 4.2-litre TDI turbodiesels (with respective outputs of 180kW/550Nm and 250kW/760Nm) and a 3-litre turbopetrol that's good for 245kW/440Nm.
