After a long hiatus from new launches and streamlining its product lineup with omission of diesel powered variants of its cars, Audi India is gearing up with all new launches for the Indian market. Currently, Audi India has A6 and A8 sedans as well as Q8 SUV in its lineup, and the RS7 Sportback is all set to become the most expensive and sportiest of the lot.
