The new ultra models from Audi A4, A5 and A6 with considerable efficiency

Posted on 05. Feb, 2014 by in Audi Canada

The “ultra” nomination stands for tolerable mobility that is entirely accessible for bland use. With a total fuel expenditure rate of 3.9 to 4.6 liters per 100 kilometers (60.31 to 51.13 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 104 to 119 grams per kilometer (167.37 to 191.51 g/mile), a new ultra models from Audi are among a many fit cars of their shred – though any reduction on a pushing dynamics or prevalent comfort.

Audi Board Member for Development, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg: “The latest TDI technology, ultra-efficient transmissions, modernized empty aftertreatment – business will frequency see anything, though they’ll notice a effects of absolute acceleration and, interjection to intensely low fuel consumption, when profitable during a gas station. The Audi ultra models magnitude points with large advantages for bland operation – usually what business appreciate.”

The A4, A5 and A6 families come with a 2.0 TDI. Newly grown in many areas, it affords indication potency and power. The high torque (320 or 400 Nm [236.02 or 295.02 lb-ft]) ensures sporty energy era even during low engine speeds, along with low fuel consumption.

Audi Head of Powertrain Development, Dr. Stefan Knirsch: “An innovative, rarely fit SCR complement removes nitrogen oxides from a exhaust. This magnitude means that a new ultra models will of march accommodate a destiny Euro 6 glimmer standards while achieving reduce fuel consumption.”

Standard on a ultra models is a primer delivery that creates a rigging ratio rather taller in a top gears. Optional on a A6 is an innovative seven-speed S tronic that serve reduces a normal expenditure rate to 4.4 liters per 100 kilometers (53.46 US mpg) with 4.6 liters on a Avant (51.13 US mpg). This corresponds to a CO2 glimmer of usually 114 grams per kilometer (183.47 g/mile) and 119 grams (191.51 g/mile) for a Avant. This totally redesigned dual-clutch delivery launches a new generation, renowned by high potency as good as by generally quick and gentle rigging changing. The innovations embody minimized inner friction, rarely fit oil supply and a centrifugal pendulum-type absorber that counteracts unattractive vibrations and allows low-noise pushing during really low engine speeds. A agreeable gamut of a gears in interplay with a far-reaching widespread provides gentle driving. The seven-speed S tronic as good as a six-speed primer delivery conducts a energy to a front wheels.

The customary start-stop complement and a motorist information complement with potency module make an critical grant to a economy of a new ultra models from Audi. On a A4 and A4 Avant, modifications of sum in a aerodynamics and a lowered physique also optimize a fuel consumption.

This multiple of potency measures yields trend-setting expenditure and glimmer figures: from usually 3.9 l/100 km (104 g/km) [60.31 US mpg / 167.37 g/mile] for a A4 Sedan (100 kW), 4.2 l/100 km (109 g/km) [56.00 US mpg / 175.42 g/mile] for a A4 Avant (100 kW) and A5 Coupé (120 kW) and 4.3 l/100 km (111 g/km) [54.70 US mpg / 178.64 g/mile] for a A5 Sportback (120 kW). The A5 Sportback 2.0 TDI ultra with 100 kW of energy will follow a bit later. With no restrictions on equipment, a A6 2.0 TDI ultra achieves a generally low CO2 glimmer turn of 114 g/km (183.47 g/mile) with 117 g/km (188.29 g/mile) with primer transmission. Per 100 kilometers it consumes on normal 4.4 liters of fuel (53.46 US mpg) and 4.5 liters (52.27 US mpg) with primer transmission. Its Avant sister indication manages with 4.6 l/100 km (51.13 US mpg) with 119 g/km (191.51 g/mile), irrespective of a transmission.

The new ultra models will go on sale constantly from a initial entertain of 2014. The 100 kW chronicle of a A4 starts during €32,600, a A4 Avant during €34,250. With a 120 kW engine, prices for a A4 start during €34,700, for a A4 Avant at €36,350. The A5 Sportback is accessible for €37,350 and a A5 Coupé for €38,150. The A6 is labelled during €39,900, a A6 Avant during €42,250; a prices for both indication versions with S tronic is €2,250 more.

The ultra operation from Audi also includes a A3 1.6 TDI ultra, that had a entrance as a initial ultra indication in tumble 2013. It consumes on normal usually 3.2 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (85 grams of CO2 per kilometer) [73.50 US mpg / 136.79 g/mile]. All ultra models are visually identifiable by a watchful lettering during a rear.
