  • Audi has given the base model A6 sedan a slight power increase for the 2021 model year as well as new standard equipment.

  • The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine now makes 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, up from the 2020 model's 248 hp and 273 lb-ft.

  • It will be on sale by the end of 2020 starting at $56,445.

Audi's entry-level A6 sedan, the Sport 45 TFSI model, is receiving a slight boost in power for the 2021 model year. There's also the addition of a few standard appearance and technology features, raising the starting price by $550 compared with the 2020 model.

For 2021, the Sport 45 TFSI's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine now produces 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 13 horsepower over the 2020 model. Power is sent to all four wheels through Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system, which is standard on the A6, and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. An available Sport package adds 20-inch five-spoke wheels and a sport suspension.

A Black Optic exterior package, which adds a black grille, air intakes, mirror and window trim, is also standard, as is a black headliner. Inside, Audi's MMI infotainment/navigation system, three-zone automatic climate control, and heated leather eight-way power front seats with contrast stitching are standard. Safety features, such as adaptive cruise control and rear cross traffic alert, are standard as well.

The 2021 Audi A6 Sport 45 TFSI is priced starting at $56,445 and will be in dealerships by the end of 2020.
