Test Audi A6 55 TFSIe Quattro S-Line, performance and comfort

A sporty behavior, a very quiet ride and great stability and comfort, this is how the Audi A6 55 TFSIe Quattro S-Line drives. We tell you how it has been to test it and the benefits of this plug-in hybrid.

It is a plug-in hybrid that achieves a significant reduction in fuel consumption in addition to having the “ZERO” label from the DGT and all its advantages. If you want to continue in the ecological line, you can opt for the MAPFRE Electric and Hybrid Car Insurance that protects the environment with the best coverage for your vehicle. Hire only the protections that best suit you and your ecological vehicle.

Its measurements are the standard of the Audi A6 sedan , which is imposing and was born on the very rigid and at the same time light MLB-Evo platform, reaching a final empty weight of more than 2 tons (2,085 kg) with exceptional roominess.

By housing the battery and the electric motor in the low plane, the trunk loses 170 liters and remains with 360 liters of capacity and 1,200 liters by folding down the backs of the rear seats ( quite small for such a large car ).

If you want a little more boot space, you can opt for the Avant family option with its 405 -litre capacity, although it provides better cargo access and an improvement in its fastening hooks and a 12V power outlet.

great equipment

Its dashboard incorporates the same frame as the A6, with its 10.1″ landscape touchscreen multimedia screen with voice control for navigation, telephone, sound, car settings, images from the front and rear cameras, etc., and a screen less than 8.6” to manage air conditioning and other comfort functions.

The “digital cockpit” panel is fully configurable and introduces the battery charge levels and the electric autonomy, which reaches 73 km (WLTP) thanks to its 17.9 kW/h capacity battery, which proves the DGT label.

The front seats are very comfortable with seats that have all kinds of electrical adjustments and in the driving position there is a small and flattened steering wheel , very attractive with a thick rim.

The rear seats are also very spacious, with plenty of space for legs and height, and have a mini console for climate control through a touch screen and two USB sockets and one 12V power socket.

Highly optimized hybrid drive

The performance of the A6 55 TFSIe Quattro is very remarkable with an acceleration of 5.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and a self – limited top speed of 250 km/h and a maximum speed of 135 km/h in 100% electric mode , benefits that we have been able to verify in the dynamic test.

It is a real display of engineering, with a 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder engine and 1,984 cc and 265 hp (37.7 mkg of maximum torque), combined with an electric motor that provides 105 kW (143 hp) and 35.7 mkg of pair.

The total combined power reaches 367 hp with a maximum torque of 51 mkg, thus achieving such brilliant performance and close to those of many sports cars.

It has 4 driving modes :

  • Charge mode: which prioritizes battery recharging through the gasoline engine.
  • EV mode: only in electric as long as the battery charge allows it.
  • Hold mode: to reserve a portion of the battery charge for later use at the driver’s discretion.
  • Hybrid mode: maximum efficiency with the two motors, with a good charge level and battery recovery by taking advantage of inertia.

Really low consumption

During the test, in Hybrid mode, a consumption of 5.6 l/100 km was achieved in mixed circulation and it was possible to lower it in the city to 3.6 l/100 km, verifying the proper functioning of the systems in terms of control of the minimum battery charge to achieve these levels.

There is no doubt, after the test, that the Hybrid mode has been very successful in achieving greater efficiency , since it uses and combines the data from the navigator, the simultaneous traffic information, the type of driving, the sensors of the video cameras , radar, among others, to manage both engines in the best possible way at all times.

When driving with the EV mode , we have verified that the level of 73 km of autonomy is met without major problems in mixed circulation, being very variable in exclusively urban or highway routes, reaching electrical consumption that ranges between 11.3 and 14, 6kw/hr .

Recharging in a normal household socket takes about 8 hours , and it can complete a full charge in a public high voltage and direct current socket of 7.4 kW in 2.5 hours .

Outstanding dynamic behavior

We have verified that the dynamic behavior of this A6 55 TFSIe is of a very good level , with a strict compromise between stability and comfort , and a very quiet ride with great ease for curves and mountains, thanks to a fast and very precise steering .

There is no doubt that it has a very sporty behavior that is favored by its 7-speed automatic gearbox and also thanks to its sports suspension from the S-Line package , its 20” wheels and 255/40 tires that provide great stability. driving.

The operability of its driving aids is remarkable, with the following as the most striking:

  • Traffic jam assistant
  • Dodge and Spin Assist
  • Adaptive cruise control with predictive efficiency assistant
  • Lane Keeping with Emergency Assist

When it comes to equipment , this A6 55 TSFIe has it all . We relate some more striking contents :

  • “My Audi” app, to plan various functions such as routes, charging points, climate control…
  • 4-zone climate control
  • Specific decoration S-Line
  • Lower diffuser shield
  • Matrix LED diode headlights
  • State-of-the-art browser
  • Black “singleframe” grill like the side air intakes
  • Black exhaust outlets
  • sports suspension
  • Rear with light groups joined by a black profile

In short, it is a really superb car that does not envy anything of its internal combustion brothers, with complete equipment , great appeal , although with a high price that is not accessible to all pockets ( almost €80,000 ) and that is offered both in hatchback body as Avant station wagon .
