This will be just the thing if you happen to be in the market for an Audi A6 1.8 TFSI. The base-level offering of the revised C7 range in the country is now nearly RM40k cheaper, and will be so until the end of this month.

A quick visit to the Audi Malaysia website reveals that pricing of the facelifted A6 range now starts from RM288,900, on-the-road without insurance. The revised pricing is part of the Real Deal offer the company is offering until May 31, or while stocks last

When it was launched in August last year, the 1.8 TFSI was priced at RM324,900, and in January this was increased to RM327,900 as part of the company’s price revision exercise for 2016, so the announced price is RM39k off that.

The variant is powered by a turbocharged 1.8 litre engine which puts out a total of 190 hp and 320 Nm of torque from 1,400 to 4,100 rpm, and the mill is paired with a seven-speed S tronic double-clutch transmission. Performance figures include a century sprint time of 7.9 seconds fand a 233 km/h top whack for the front-wheel drive model.

No change in pricing for the other A6 model in the local lineup. The 3.0 TFSI quattro variant, which has 333 hp and 440 Nm on tap, is still priced at RM487,900, as announced during the price revision in January.
