Audi A6 TDI Diesel

The diesel-powered Audi A6 TDI presents quite a compelling package … one that we can dream of getting here in America, quite possibly in the near future. It’s tough to argue with a 3.0 liter direct injection V6 diesel producing 332 foot pounds of torque and 233 horsepower … especially when it delivers 23.5 miles per gallon (MPG) city, 46.3 MPG highway, and 34 MPG combined (European driving cycle) … in an all-wheel-drive luxury coupe of this stature.

We took a quick ride in a Euro A6 Quattro in Sacramento this week and can attest to the stated 7.1 second 0-62 times (although we didn’t have the opportunity to bear witness to the 153 miles per hour top speed).

  1. This would be an awesome car in the states. Any idea how we can persuade Audi to bring it hear? How do we convince Audi that not all Americans are stupid gas guzzlers and some of us know that diesel cars are way better than gasoline?
