2019 Audi A6 Avant Animation Trailer Assist & Mild Hybrid MHEV – Video
The optional swiveling trailer towing hitch features an electric release function. Also available as an option is the camera-based trailer maneuver assist, which helps the driver when reversing and maneuvering with a trailer. The lower MMI touch display can be used to steer the trailer.
Attractive station wagons go by the name of Avant. The new A6 Avant underscores this Audi claim by combining high everyday utility with dynamic design. It is the first Avant model in the new Audi design language, which is characterized by large, athletically taut surfaces, sharp lines and short overhangs.
A wide, low Singleframe grille dominates the front of the new A6 Avant. A distinctive silhouette with a stretched front end and trapezoid window surfaces characterize the side view. Brawny blisters over the wheel arches emphasize the quattro drive. The sinewy roof line flows into a roof edge spoiler, which makes the side view appear even longer. The Avant’s D-pillars and rear window are particularly sloping, which reinforces the dynamic appearance. An aluminum trim strip joins the two rear lights and visually underscores the width of the car. As alternatives to the series version, customers can choose the sport and design trim lines as well as the S line exterior package.
All engines in the new A6 Avant come with Audi’s new mild hybrid technology (MHEV). In real-world driving, this can reduce fuel consumption by up to 0.7 liters per 100 kilometers. With the V6 engines, it operates with 48 V, while the four-cylinder engines use a 12 V electrical system. The belt alternator starter, the heart of the MHEV system, recovers up to 12 kW with the 48 V system during braking and feeds the electricity into a separate lithium-ion battery. At speeds between 55 and 160 km/h (34.2 and 99.4 mph), the A6 Avant models can coast with the combustion engine deactivated. The start-stop range begins at 22 km/h (13.7 mph), 15 km/h (9.3 mph) with the 150 kW, four-cylinder diesel engine.
