Audi A6 Overview

Audi's A6 sedan is our top-rated midsize luxury sedan, 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 works well, but has a less-than-luxurious abrasive engine sound. The 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 is smooth and punchy, while the 4.0-liter V8 in the S6 delivers effortless thrust. Front-wheel-drive versions get the four-cylinder and a seven-speed automated-manual transmission. All-wheel drive models can also be equipped with the four-cylinder, but instead get the smooth eight-speed automatic. 2016 brings a standard USB port, eliminating the annoying proprietary connector.
