The 16th edition of the Guangzhou Auto Show is the venue where Audi has decided to introduce the A6L
Built in China for China, the midsize sedan comes in a long-wheelbase specification and it will be the only version available. In other words, the regular A6 Sedan available in Europe and the U.S. won’t be sold in the People’s Republic.
The A6L as it looks essentially the same as the normal version, but
So, the rear doors are a bit longer to reflect the stretched wheelbase now measuring 3024 mm (119 inches) instead of the usual 2924 mm (115.1 inches). The bigger distance between the two axles pays dividends in terms of legroom for rear passengers.
Initially, the Audi A6L will be sold in China with a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine developing 190 horsepower or 224 hp.
The longer A6 will have to fight the usual competitors, such as the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes E-Class Sedan, which are both built in China for the local market in LWB guises.
In addition, Jaguar sells there a stretched XFL to compete with the Germans. It’s not just sedans that are getting the long wheelbase treatment as lately, also there is Audi Q5 L more recent Mercedes GLC L.
