An Audi A6 1.8T ultra was recently displayed at Audi Forum Ingolstadt in Germany. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this version, it was introduced in September last year together with the facelifted A6 range and since it wears the “ultra” badge, it’s obviously one of the most economical versions of the range. It can be had both as a sedan and as a more practical Avant, with power coming from a four-cylinder 1.8 TFSI turbocharged gasoline engine delivering 190 HP (140 kW) and 320 Nm of torque to the front wheels through an S tronic gearbox.
This hardware setup grants the A6 ultra with a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 145 mph (233 km/h). More importantly the cars have a fuel consumption of only 5.7 liters / 100 km (49.5 mpg UK or 41.3 mpg US) with corresponding CO2 emissions of just 133 g/km.
In terms of pricing, the Audi A6 1.8T ultra sedan kicks off in Germany from €40,650 whereas the Avant starts at €43,150. As noticeable in the attached images, the TFSI-powered ultra-badged variant of the A6 looks virtually the same inside and out as the other A6 models.
