In 2002, the A6 received a facelift, with revised headlight and grille design, exposed exhaust tips, and slight changes to accessory body moldings, and tail light colour from red to amber in North American models. A new host of engines were also introduced. The 1.8-litre engine was deleted and replaced by a 2.0-litre powerplant with 96 kW (131 PS; 129 bhp). The 1.9-litre Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) was tweaked to produce a maximum power output of 96 kW (131 PS; 129 bhp), and 310 N?m (229 lbf?ft) of torque, and was mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The 2.4-litre V6 was named the BDV 30 valves and gained an extra 5 hp and better balancing , and the 2.8-litre V6 engine was replaced by a 3.0-litre engine with 162 kW (220 PS; 217 bhp). The turbocharged 2.7-litre was revised, resulting in 184 kW (250 PS; 247 bhp) and 330 N?m (243 lbf?ft), controlled by standard quattro system. The V6 diesel was also slightly modified resulting in 120 kW (163 PS; 161 bhp) (after the second modification) and 350 N?m (258 lbf?ft). A new more powerful V6 diesel was also introduced with 132 kW (179 PS; 177 bhp) and 370 N?m (273 lbf?ft). The 4.2-litre V8 engine which arrived in 2001 remained unchanged.
Also new was the multitronic continuously variable transmission, available in most front-wheel drive models. All models, except the 2.0-litre petrol and 1.9-litre TDI, were available with Audi’s trademark four-wheel-drive system, quattro. A four-wheel-drive version of the Avant, with raised ground clearance and slightly altered styling was sold as the Audi allroad quattro, Audi’s first crossover SUV. bugatti wallpapers, gallardo, aston martin wallpapers, Audi A6 wallpapers, porsche wallpapers
