Hybrid engine allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just five seconds, with a top speed of 250 km / h, which, as usual with Audi, is electronically limited. Recently the company announced that it intends to completely change the appearance of the entire model range, which would make the car more recognizable and memorable, depending on the membership of a particular family. It is quite possible that the hybrid Audi A6 Sportback will be one of the first models, which will have new design solutions.
