The S6 is the high performance variant or say the more powerful version of Audi A6 sedan that is one of the best selling Audi cars in India.

Powered by 4 Litre TFSi petrol engine that has eight valves and with peak power output if 420 PS, the S6 is really a power plant. The 7 speed dual clutch, S-Tronic gearbox takes the power to the wheels.
