Audi Malaysia has this morning announced the arrival of the A6 2.0 TFSI quattro and the A7 Sportback 2.0 TFSI quattro, completing its executive line-up. The 2.0 liter turbocharged engines make a total of 252hp and 370Nm between 1,600 and 4,500rpm, mated to a seven-speed S-tronic transmission that moves power to all four wheels, thanks to Audi’s legendary quattro all-wheel drive system. Century sprints for the two are marked at 6.5 seconds and 6.7 seconds for the sedan and five-door coupe respectively – enough to keep up with most modern hot-hatches.

The executive Audi A6 2.0 TFSI quattro slots in between the entry-point Audi A6 1.8 TFSI and the range-topping Audi A6 3.0 TFSI quattro, and looks almost identical with its larger-engined variant with the only exception beings its 18” 10-spoke V-design alloy wheels. With balanced proportions and crisp styling, the Audi A6 2.0 TFSI quattro cuts a handsome visage with its signature Single-frame grille and LED headlights and taillights with dynamic indicators.

The elegant Audi A7 2.0 TFSI quattro provides a more accessible option for owners looking to combine the sporty appeal of a coupé, the comfort of a sedan and the practicality of an Avant (station wagon) that comes with the Audi A7. With an exterior that is identical to the 3-litre variant, this understated Audi A7 Sportback 2.0 TFSI quattro provides a distinctively progressive silhouette with its long bonnet, muscular waistline and sloping roof-line.

On to the interior, the Audi A6 2.0 TFSI continues to uphold the standard for business class comfort, with electrically adjustable front seats with four-way lumbar support and a spacious rear seat all done up in Milano leather. In order to keep all occupants connected and entertained, this executive sedan also features Audi MMI navigation plus with MMI Touch which is accessed through an electrically retractable 8-inch screen, Audi connect which provides Google Earth and Wi-Fi hotspot functionality and a Bose surround sound 12-channel amplifier with 14 loudspeakers.

The Audi A7 2.0 TFSI quattro features a decidedly sportier interior, featuring 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, all done up in a sporty Alcantara-leather combination. Also bristling with technology, this Audi A7 Sportback also features all of 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.

Both the Audi A6 2.0 TFSI quattro and the Audi A7 Sportback 2.0 TFSI quattro come packed with an array of electronic and mechanical features to ensure safety and efficiency, including a start/stop system with energy recovery, tyre pressure loss indicator, hill descent control, Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) which includes Traction Control (ASR), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and a total of eight airbags.

Available for booking at all authorized Audi dealerships immediately, the Audi A6 2.0 TFSI quattro is priced from RM407,900, whilst the Audi A7 2.0 TFSI quattro will retail from RM484,900.
