Optimum power

Designed with the IVT (Intake Variable Technique) system, both the 2.0 and 2.4 liter powertrain options of the S6 attain optimum air intake efficiency at different loads and speeds. 

The 2.0 liter engine with 5-speed manual transmission delivers peak power of 140hp at 6,000 rpm, maximum torque of 186 N-m at 4,500 rpm, and a top speed of 180 kph. 

While the top-spec 2.4 liter engine with 6-speed automatic DCT (dual-clutch transmission) peaks with 160 hp at 6,000 rpm and 215 N-m at 4,500 rpm, and delivers a top speed of 185 kph.

 

Fully independent suspension

Independent MacPherson struts with stabilized wishbone in front.

Independent multi-link system in the rear to enhance vehicle dynamics as well as ride comfort.

 

Protection for all

Impact protection with six airbags (dual front, side and curtain)  and 3-point seat belts for all five passengers.

Two-channel ABS with EBD

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) from Bosch maintains tire traction through hard braking, and while constantly monitoring weight changes caused by varying passenger and cargo loads.

Proximity sensors

Six proximity sensors, two of at the front and four at the rear, make parking safer and easier. Front sensors alert the driver to obstacles 60cm away, the inner rear sensors warn when an obstacle is 120cm away, and the outer rear sensors when 60cm away. For additional cues, the frequency of the alert intensifies as the car gets closer to the obstacle.
