  1. Audi Q2   

Audi has launched the Q2 SUV in the country at Rs 34.99 lakh (ex-showroom). It’s the brand’s most affordable SUV and sits in a space of its own. But the pricing is a bit of a sore point as it’s similar to bigger SUVs like the BMW X1, Volvo XC40, and the upcoming new-gen Mercedes-Benz GLA. That’s because the Q2 is brought to India as a completely built unit (CBU).

Audi Q2 Specifications

The Audi Q2 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that develops 190PS of power and 320Nm of torque. It drives all four wheels and comes paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. No diesel engine on offer at the mome

Audi Q2 Variants

The Q2 is offered in five variants: Standard, Premium, Premium Plus 1, Premium Plus 2 and Technology.

Audi Q2 Features

Feature highlights in the Audi Q2 include Audi’s MMI infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument display, dual-zone climate control, ambient lighting, cruise control, automatic LED headlamps, and keyless entry. Powered front seats have been omitted which is shocking. Safety is covered by multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors and electronic stability control.

2. Audi A6

Audi India has launched the 2020 A6 in India at Rs 54.20 lakh (ex-showroom India). The eight generation model in India is available in its standard guise and comes with a 2.0-litre petrol engine only. It develops 248PS and 370Nm and comes mated with a 7-speed DCT sending power to its front wheels. The 2020 Audi A6 is available in two variants: Premium Plus and Technology.

The styling of the 2020 A6 is evolutionary and comes with sharper lines all around. It is also the first Audi in India to come with a twin touchscreen central console with the top one handling infotainment duties and the lower one handling climate control duties.

Notable features in the A6 include connected-car tech, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, quad-zone climate control, sunroof, wireless phone charger, Audi’s drive select, ambient lighting, park assist, wireless phone charger as well as keyless entry with push button start. Safety features in the 2020 A6 include eight airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, rear parking camera, electronic stability program, traction control, electric parking with auto hold and lane departure warning.

Primary rivals for the A6 are the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E Class and Volvo S90.

Audi A6 Specifications

The A6 is available with a single 2.0-litre TFSI petrol engine paired with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Output is a reasonable 245PS and 370Nm and the car accelerate up to 100kmph from a standstill in 7 seconds flat (tested). But it’s the refinement and mid-range punch that dominates the experience rather than outright performance. The max torque is spread from 1600rpm all the way up to 4500rpm and that makes it an effortless engine to drive.

Audi A6 Variants

The A6 is available in just the 45 TFSI 2.0-litre petrol engine. Premium Plus and Technology are the only two trim options that you can choose from.

Audi A6 Features

The new A6 looks stunning in a very understated fashion. Audi haven’t re-invented the wheel here just sharpened the edges. Standouts are the large grill, low stance and semi-aero 10-spoke alloy wheel pattern.

The interiors are a new geeky take on executive luxury with a clean modern design mixed with flashy luxury bits like three coloured screens and open pore wood inserts. It’s a reasonably practical cabin for the family with four cup holders storage in all four doors. More storage for nick knacks wouldn’t have hurt though. In the rear there’s sun/privacy shades as well. The rear windscreen is electrically operated while the side window ones are manual. Entertainment on the Technology variants is via a 10.1 inch touch screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and features a haptec touch function which requires you to click on the screen to action button functions. This can be disabled as well for a more conventional touch screen experience. The Bang & Olufsen 16 speaker audio system is a treat for audiophiles with crystal clear sound and solid bass. There’s even ambient lighting with a dual colour setup and even allows you to set up a custom colours.

7. Audi New Q3 – Upcoming

Audi has revealed the sportier looking Q3 Sportback coupe-SUV, which features a sloping roofline and it does look slick and a redesigned bootlid. The Q3 Sportback can be had with two engines: 2.0-litre TFSI petrol and 2.0-litre TDI diesel. It is set to go on sale in Europe from September. Audi New Q3 is expected to launch in India in Dec 2020 ,it will be priced at €40,200 (approx. Rs 35.20 lakh) for the 35 TDI S tronic and €46,200 (around Rs 39.73 lakh) for the 45 TFSI quattro S tronic (both prices introductory).

8. Audi e-tron & e-tron Sportback – Upcoming

The 2021 Audi e-tron and e-tron Sportback are all-electric luxury crossovers that straddle the line between the present and the future. While their battery-powered, all-wheel-drive powertrains deliver up to 222 miles of EPA estimated driving range and foreshadow the death of internal-combustion engines, their refined driving manners and serene interior spaces are similar to the non-electric Audi models currently occupying showrooms. These recognizable traits as well as their traditional exterior designs make the e-trons appear less revolutionary than luxury EV rivals such as the Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X. Although the 2021 e-tron and e-tron Sportback have shorter driving ranges than the Jaguar or Tesla, Audi believes this more conservative approach will make the transition from traditional gas-fed models to all-electric vehicles easier for buyers.
