Audi A6 Overview

The A6 is quick and effortless, thanks to the smooth and refined 3.0-liter supercharged V6, yet it returned a respectable 22 mpg overall in our tests. The base engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo. AWD versions get the super-smooth eight-speed automatic, but front-drive cars get a CVT. The A6 rides comfortably, and handling is agile and secure. The cabin is hushed, and the seats and interior quality are top-notch. Some controls are complicated. Standard features on 3.0T and higher trims include a touchpad for inputting radio and navigation commands. A 3.0-liter diesel V6 is new. Reliability of the V6 supercharged has been average, the 4-cylinder is above average.
