2017 Audi A6 and A7 Get New Competition Package

Audi has officially confirmed the upcoming models for 2017 which includes a Q3 crossover and the A6 sedan.

The next generation models are confirmed and they are not going to receive huge performance tweaks but rather some cosmetic changes.


Coping up with the diesel issues, the brand is not going to offer any diesel models and will be focusing on gasoline engines. The 2017 Audi A6 is not something to boast about but an exciting news comes from the brand’s stable which confirmed that the 3.0T version is getting a new competition package. The package powers the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine which pushes its performance to achieve a total of 340 horsepower. In comparison charts, it was confirmed that the new pack increases the horsepower by seven. The torque generated remains the same at 325 lb feet of torque.

In the competition model buyers also receive a rear sport differential. The component was provided only in the S6 model so far but is now part of the 2017 Audi A6 sedan. The interiors are adorned with Valcona S sport leather seats. They are highly durable and offer an amazing level of comfort as confirmed by owners who have had the chance to experience it in the past. The package also includes 20-inch wheels, red brake calipers and the seats use diamond contrast stitching to create exquisite looks.

The base model of the Audi A6 2.0T and the 3.0T versions are upgraded with 18-inch wheels and exterior accents with S Line. The official pricing has been confirmed as well. You can go for the Audi A6 2.0T is priced at $48,550 and the 3.0T version is priced at $59,550. With the competition package, the 2017 Audi A7 3.0T pricing is bumped to a solid $77,500. While it is definitely not going to be the choice of package for budget buyers, it will add a lot of features designed to justify the increased price tag. The 2017 S7 is priced lower made possible by the Premium Plus package.
