2019 Audi A6 to Add New 2.0-litre Turbo Four

Published on July 2, 2019 in News by Guillaume Rivard

When the redesigned 2019 Audi A6 made its debut last year, it came to Canada exclusively in 55 TFSI trim with a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 delivering 335 horsepower. However, we knew a cheaper, less powerful version was on the way, too.

On Monday, Audi announced details for the new 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that will power the entry-level A6 45 TFSI.

Producing 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, this smaller turbocharged mill sends the midsize sedan from 0-96 km/h in 6.1 seconds. Just like the 3.0-litre unit, it will be standard equipped with a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and quattro all-wheel drive.

While there’s no 48-volt mild hybrid system similar to the V6, Audi has previously confirmed that a plug-in hybrid variant of the A6, likely using a 2.0-litre engine, will be launched by the end of 2019—possibly in 2020 on this side of the Atlantic.

The on-sale date and MSRP for the four-cylinder 2019 Audi A6 45 TFSI in Canada have yet to be announced. In the U.S., this model is about eight percent cheaper than the V6-powered A6, so a similar pricing structure would put it at just under $63,000 here.
