Expect the new A6 to have a similar engine lineup. Automobile Magazine reports that the new 3.0L V6 will feature direct injection to reach 240 HP. the 4.2 will likely reach 330 HP as with the new A8. Again, expect Front Wheel Drive and Quattro AWD. It will NOT share a platform with the new Passat, so expect the engine to still be longitudally mounted. That means that Quattro will still be a Torsen system and FWD cars should retain the Multitronic CVT. The new A6 will probably be a bit more luxurious and larger.
