2016 Audi A9
For several years there have been a lot of speculations about the new member of the Audi “A” family. Currently, the German automaker offers many models, starting from A1 up to the A8, but in an already crowded line there will be a place for a model called 2016 Audi A9. When Audi protected the A9 and S9 names last year, rumors have been further inflamed.
This model will be based on the same platform as the current Q7. It is pretty interesting fact, as the model Q7 is a fairly large SUV. It will be very interesting to see how it will look like, because it should be a luxury sedan model. According to the source from Ingolstadt, 2016 Audi A9 will actually be an Allroad sedan with elevated bodyshell and increased ground clearance. 2016 Audi A9 will be the most luxurious and most expensive model German manufacturer has ever built!
Chief designer Wolfgang Egger announced a shift in design of future Audi models, so we are eagerly waiting for the first photos of the new 2016 Audi A9. However, here’s how it could look like (image shown above) according to the German car magazine Auto Motor und Sport.
2016 Audi A9 Powertrain
What will be the engine under the hood of this luxury beauty can only be guessed. However, we expect it to be a 3.0-liter TFSI engine that will provide about 300 hp as well as a V8 engine with 500 hp. Hybrid version, which will combine electric and petrol engine, is also possible.
The interior will be a real work of art, with high quality materials, leather, brushed aluminum, Alcantara and wood inlays. It will be equipped with a wide range of technology additions, but the most interesting is a semi-automatic control system, which will enable fully autonomous driving and parking on its own.
When A9 hit the market, it will have a few competitors. In the first line there is the Porsche Panamera as well as Aston Martin Rapide. It will be a serious market struggle.
2016 Audi A9 Release Date and Price
It is expected to be on the market in 2016, and assumed price will be around $ 140 000, which is not much, considering the features and luxury that will be offered. Although there is little information about the new 2016 Audi A9 model, maybe we still do not see the need for a new Audi’s luxury car. But no one should doubt the correctness of the decision of German manufacturers.
