What do a Honda Unicorn’s airbox and an Audi A6 2.0-litre TDI’s fuel gauge have in common? No matter what I do, they refuse to budge. Even as my hands were deep inside my Unicorn, trying to prise the stubborn plastic box out, the exceedingly white A6 arrived home, immediately prompting me to wonder what Jason Statham would think of it. The Audi chap looked a bit shocked as I reached for the door handle with frighteningly greasy hands, so I didn’t touch the car (not until he left, anyway), and got back to dismembering the poor Honda. Yes, I was as excited as Mr Statham would be to see the new Audi A6 2.0 TDI.
However, a few hours and a couple of hundred kilometres later, the fuel gauge remained resolutely at the ‘full’ mark, causing my eyebrows to raise in appreciation. This is certainly one very efficient motor. And though we motoring journalists always make fun of how all Audis look the same, this time, I noticed that people do look...no, make that gaze at the A6. Something about white cars and Indians, methinks.
