New and more efficient Ultra trim level revealed by Audi, available on all A4, A5 and A6 models

Audi is expanding its lineup with the addition of a new trim level called Ultra, which will initially spawn 11 new models. The entire A4, A5 and A6 ranges will be available with the option of the efficient Ultra trim level, which will be offered with a choice of a newly developed 2.0-litre TDI engine with various power outputs.

All new Ultra models will feature stop/start technology to help conserve fuel and six-speed manual gearbox, with the German manufacturer claiming the models are now among the most efficient in their respective segment.

Audi A5 review

The A4 and A4 Avant variants also benefit from aerodynamic tweaks such as a reduced ride height and styling modifications to further help improve efficiency. The A4 models are offered with the option of 136bhp and 163bhp versions of the 2.0-litre TDI engine. The most efficient option would be the A4 saloon with the 136bhp engine, returning a claimed 67mpg with emissions of 109g/km.

The A5 Coupe and Sportback plus A6 saloon and Avant don’t come with any aerodynamic cosmetic tweaks but are available with a 163bhp and 190bhp version of the 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine respectively.

People who want to save money should buy the Seat or Skoda.

Well I'm no motoring JOURNALIST but 5 minutes on the Audi website shows that "Ultra" isnt a trim level at all but a new Engine/Transmission combination applied to the existing SE, SLine and Black Edition variants. It replaces the existing 2.0 diesel and Multitronic automatic with a Euro 6 compliant Engine and dual clutch "STronic" transmission. Got any jobs going AE. I wouldnt need much training and would be happy to mentor the existing shirt out young lads you employ.

Err that's not actually bcorrect, try a PCP or lease deal and actually the Audi is far cheaper, I know I want a Superb Estate TDi but the ultra Avant was nearly £100 a month cheaper...

Yip, and I have just ordered one, get it June.
