Audi has introduced a new diesel engine option for its A6 executive car and A7 Sportback coupe.

It will come initially as front-wheel drive, with four-wheel drive models following later in 2018.

0-62mph acceleration times are 8.1 seconds for the A6 saloon, and 8.3 seconds for the other two models. 

Prices for cars with the new engine start at £38,640 for an A6 saloon in Sport trim.
