Headlines: 2012 Audi A6 3.0 TDI Price, Spec, Review and Photos. 2012 Audi A6 3.0 TDI will be two versions of the 2967-cc TDI engine, with programming being the only difference. The conservative tune makes 204 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, with the more-powerful engine churning out 245 horses, its 369 lb-ft peaking at 1400 rpm. (The outgoing 3.0 as installed in our long-term Q7 TDI makes 225 hp and 406 lb-ft.) Although both will be available in the A6, we sampled only the more powerful one, which is the one more likely to show up in the U.S.

When the oil-burning A6 finally arrives in 2012 or 2013, it should carry a premium of about $3000 over the gas-fired V-6 model, leaving spendier buyers with a daunting decision: the quiet, instant-on performance of the supercharged gas V-6 or the smooth, rushing torque and fuel efficiency of the diesel. A difficult choice like that is a good problem to have.
