[SiF6]2- is known while [SiCl6]2- is not known because,
1. Due to the small size of F, the steric repulsion will be very less in [SiF6]2- but in [SiCl6]2- the steric repulsion is high between Cl atoms which are large in size.
2. Also, the interaction of lone pairs of electrons of F with Si atom is stronger than that of the lone pair of Cl atom.
Therefore [SiF6]2- is known while [SiCl6]2- is not.
