Audi Malaysia has introduced new 2.0 TFSI quattro variants for the A6 and A7 Sportback, expanding the options offered to buyers here. The A6 2.0 TFSI quattro is priced at RM407,900, while the A7 Sportback 2.0 TFSI quattro retails at RM484,900. Both prices are on-the-road without insurance, and inclusive of a five-year/unlimited mileage warranty.

The 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine serves up 252 hp and 370 Nm in both cars, mated to a seven-speed S tronic automatic transmission and quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. The sedan will complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 6.5 seconds, which is slightly quicker than the five-door coupe’s 6.7 seconds.

Focusing on the A6 2.0 TFSI quattro first, the new variant is positioned between the base A6 1.8 TFSI (RM327,900) and range-topping A6 3.0 TFSI quattro (RM487,900). Even so, the new variant is nearly identical to the larger-engined A6 when it comes to exterior equipment.

Therefore, LED projector headlights with high beam assist and LED taillights with dynamic turn signals are present here. The only thing that differentiates A6 2.0 TFSI quattro from the A6 3.0 TFSI quattro are the 18-inch 10-spoke V-design alloy wheels, which are smaller than the 19-inch 15-spoke units on the range-topper.

Inside, you’ll find Milano leather upholstery on the seats, with the front ones being electrically adjustable with four-way lumbar support and a memory function for the driver’s side. The new variant also gets the same MMI navigation plus with MMI Touch infotainment system as the A6 3.0 TFSI quattro, including a retractable 8-inch screen and 14-speaker Bose sound system.

Moving on to the A7 Sportback 2.0 TFSI quattro, the new base variant for the A7 Sportback range mimics the 3.0 litre variant’s (RM625,900) exterior, with LED headlights, LED taillights with dynamic turn signals and 19-inch five-spoke V-design forged aluminium alloy wheels.

As for interior kit, Aluminium Ellipse silver inlays are put in place of the Aluminium Delta Silver ones found in the 3.0 litre variant. The seats still retain their electrical adjustability and four-way lumbar support, but are upholstered with an Alcantara/leather combination instead of Valcona leather. The infotainment system and its accompanying gear are identical to those in the A6 2.0 TFSI quattro, but with the addition of the Audi Smartphone Interface (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto).

Both 2.0 TFSI quattro variants are equipped with eight airbags as standard, along with Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC), Traction Control (ASR), EBD, Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), ABS and hill descent control.
