Audi A6 Avant

Schöne Kombis heißen Avant – der neue A6 Avant führt diesen Anspruch von Audi fort. Mit scharfen Linien, großen Flächen und der markanten, flach stehenden Heckscheibe spiegelt das Exterieurdesign die neue Formensprache der Marke wider. Der A6 Avant fährt sich sportlich und ist dank Mild-Hybrid-System effizient zugleich. Der Riemen-Starter-Generator, das Herzstück des MHEV-Systems, gewinnt beim 48-Volt-System beim Verzögern bis zu 12 kW Leistung zurück und speist den Strom in eine separate Lithium- Ionen-Batterie ein. Mit deaktiviertem Motor kann der neue Audi A6 Avant zwischen 55 und 160 km/h segeln, der Start-Stopp-Bereich beginnt schon bei 22 km/h. Im Interieur ist schöner Wohnen angesagt: Die schlanke Instrumententafel dominiert eine Black Panel-Fläche, in die das obere MMI touch response-Display eingebettet liegt. Ebenso wie das untere Display auf der Konsole des Mitteltunnels ist es leicht zum Fahrer hin geneigt. Im MMI touch response-Bedienkonzept des neuen Audi A6 Avant führt der Fahrer fast alle Funktionen auf zwei großen Displays aus. Auf dem oberen mit 10,1 Zoll Diagonale – wenn die MMI Navigation plus an Bord ist – managt der Fahrer das Infotainment und die Navigation. Über das 8,6-Zoll-Display darunter steuert er Klimatisierung, Komfortfunktionen und Text-eingabe. Zusammen mit der MMI Navigation plus kommt auch das volldigitale Audi virtual cockpit mit 12,3 Zoll Diagonale an Bord, das über die Multifunktionstasten am Lenkrad bedient wird. Das optionale Head-up-Display projiziert Informationen auf die Windschutzscheibe.
