Audi Malaysia today announced new variants of the Audi A6 sedan and A7 Sportback five-door coupé, both with a high performance 2.0 litre four-cylinder, in-line petrol engine coupled with Audi’s quattro permanent all-wheel drive.
Under the hood, both vehicles are powered by a two-litre, four-cylinder, in-line petrol engine with direct fuel injection and exhaust gas turbocharging which generates 252hp and a maximum torque of 370Nm at between 1,600rpm and 4,500rpm, mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission along with the quattro permanent all-wheel drive, which takes the A6 2.0 TFSI quattro from 0 to 100km/h in 6.5 seconds and the A7 2.0 TFSI quattro in 6.7 seconds.
The executive A6 2.0 TFSI quattro slots in between the entry-point A6 1.8 TFSI and the range-topping A6 3.0 TFSI quattro, and looks almost identical to the larger-engined variant, with the only exception being its 18-inch 10-spoke V-design alloy wheels.
It features Audi’s signature Singleframe grille, LED headlights and taillights with dynamic indicators.
Meanwhile, the A7 2.0 TFSI quattro features an exterior identical to the three-litre variant.

The A7 2.0 TFSI quattro’s interior features a more sculpted dashboard with Aluminium Ellipse silver inlays and underlined further with electrically adjustable sport seats with four-way lumbar support in the front and a cosseting rear seat, upholstered in an Alcantara-leather combination.
Besides that, it also features the same infotainment and connectivity features as the A6 sedan, but with the added function of the Audi Smartphone Interface, which allows the access of a connected iOS or Android smartphone’s features through the vehicle’s MMI interface.
