One of the star vehicles sold by the VW
group in China is the Audi
A6L, a longer wheelbase version of the popular A6
sedan. The hot seller moved 8,440 units last July. Now, the German company has decided to offer the A6L with one of the company's famous TDI diesel
engines: the 2.7-liter TDI that offers 189hp. In the A6L, the engine puts out a healthy 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) or torque and has an average fuel consumption of 6.8 l/100 km (34.6 mpg U.S.), with prices starting at 488,800 yuan ($71,500 U.S.). This isn't VW's first attempt to sell diesels in China. Since 2002, the marque has offered the Jetta
SDI, the Bora SDI, the Caddy
SDI and even the old 2.5-liter TDI engine on the A6, which resulted in lackluster sales. Perhaps the Audi A6L will turn the tide.
