All A6 models are diesel now!
Surely not?
Been looking at the current A6 range with my son, who ideally wants a S6 Avant.
As far as we can tell there are NO PETROL ENGINES WHATSOEVER available for the entire A6 range.
The only petrol engines are the 4-litre versions in the S6 and RS6 models. What is going on? :Confused:

Just took a look at Audi.com.au to see what's available here.
No Avant, unless you opt for the Allroad. Allroad only has one engine choice in the 3.0 diesel (nice engine though!).
Switch to Sedan (Saloon?) and there's 2 petrol variants, neither of which I would option - 1.8TSFI and 2.0TSFI.
Deisels are the 2.0 and 3.0.
All transmissions are S-tronic.

According to Audi Germany web site there are Avant 1.8t and 2.0t variants (the latter with quattro) but I guess in the UK they consider the demand doesn't warrant importation.

The previous model definitely got the 3.0t (supercharged v6) in a de-tuned state from the S models.

I'm quite surprised that they've not produced a decent petrol version, below the halo models, but I guess investment is going in to hybrid powertrains which aren't ready yet?

The 2.0t is a fine engine in something light and small but in a car the size of the A6 I can't help but feel it would be a bit underwhelming due to the added weight? The 4.0t is on my shopping list for the next car - just not sure if it'll be S or RS flavour :D
