Following a set of leaked photos that surfaced in China in august, Audi has been released the all-new A6 at the Guangzhou Auto Show.

As with its predecessor, the C8 generation-based A6 L offers a longer wheelbase than the standard car, In this case, the wheelbase grows by 100 mm (3.93 in) to 3,024 mm (119 in). Consequently, the overall length of the car increases to 5,050 mm (198.8 in).

It's worth noting that the A6 L's wheelbase is longer than the wheelbase of the standard A8 (not available in China), which stands at 2,998 mm (118 in). Legroom and knee room.

Interestingly, the A6 wants to be the only A6 sedan model Audi wants to sell in China, as the standard wheelbase version will not be available there. Styling wise, the long-wheelbase A6 looks just like the shorter version, bar the slightly longer rear doors.

At launch, the A6 L offers four- and six-cylinder engines. For starters, there's a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder gasoline engine available in two states of tune. It makes 190 horsepower (187 hp) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque in the entry-level guise and 224 hp (221 hp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque in the mid-range specification.

Customers can also opt for a 3.0-liter TFSI V6 engine that delivers 340 hp (335 hp) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. All engines are mated as standard with a seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission. The V6 also gets quattro all-wheel drive as standard. Later on, Audi is expected to introduce a hybrid version in the A6 L range.

The new Audi A6 L will be built by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture exclusively for the Chinese market. Sales wants to begin in early 2019.
