Audi A6 Overview

Audi's midsized luxury A6 sedan is top-rated in this category with strong performance, accomplished ride and handling, great seats, and excellent fit and finish. It gets a mid-cycle freshening, which includes tweaked engines. The 2.0-liter, turbo four-cylinder now makes 252 hp; the 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 is good for 333 hp; and the 4.0-liter V8 in the S6 makes do with 450 hp. The diesel engine remains unchanged. Front-wheel-drive versions of the A6 will get the four-cylinder and a seven-speed automated-manual transmission, while the all-wheel-drive cars get the smooth eight-speed automatic. In addition to the front and rear end nip and tuck that comes with any freshening, Audi says that the windows are double-glazed now for better noise isolation. The A6 already offered a 3G Wi-Fi hot spot, but with the freshening that system has been upgraded to 4G LTE capability.
