1997 Audi A6 Owners Manual – Considering Audi’s new loved ones of cars – the significantly productive A4, the luxurious A8 and the new A6 – it is difficult to believe that this is the same company that offered a paltry 700 units in Canada a simple two years in the past.
The sweet-as-a-bug A4 started the company’s reversal of a lot of money and getting eventually captured the hearts of the affluent and chic, Audi is not intending to permit through to a valuable thing.
The A6’s larger dimension the good news is offered it far more rear lower body and headroom than the confined A4. Although it isn’t very as large as the E-class Mercedes, it’s at the very least as roomy as the 5-series Bimmer.
The A6 also offers a handful of-of those a bit gimmicky features that German designers so really like. The best is the solar power sunroof that abilities a supporter to cool the interior on popular summer time times. It is an aspect of Audi’s summer package that also includes UV defensive glass and a detector that can determine the sun’s orientation so the weather conditions management program can adapt its configurations consequently.

The engine is the very same 2.8 liter, 5-control device-for every-cylinder V-6 that had been recently dropped into the A4. In this guise, it offers 200 horsepower plus an impressive 207 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,200 rpm. Performance in the front side-tire travel version of the A6 is sprightly, but the additional weight and friction of the Quattro’s all-wheel-drive program suck the engine’s will at reduced rpm.
I always keep wanting for additional displacement. A boost to 3.2 liters (the identical as Mercedes’ E320) would do perfectly. In the meantime, anticipate seeing an edition of the A8’s 3.7 liters DOHC V-8 (distributed only in Europe and the USA) under the hood of the A6 by upcoming year.
The performance of Audi’s 5-pace Tiptronic-type automatic transmission will continue to impress. In an auto method, changes are sleek and all of but imperceptible. Switched to guidebook function, the trannie permits me to hold every single gear, creating the most of the V-6’s higher rpm strength. Every single performance sedan needs to have 1 of these.
The very same goes for Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive method. Though it provides only restricted benefits on free of moisture, nice and clean gravel, Audi’s glow on moist and icy highways.
A considerably cry from the uninspired, slow and sq. the car it replaces, the ’98 A6 will get my vote as the prettiest car in the industry. But for a bit more oomph in the engine division, the ’98 A6 can be the type head. Outstanding progress without a doubt.
