The Audi A6 is among the best midsized luxury sedans we've tested. It has class-leading fuel economy, lively and sporty handling, an easy-to-use infotainment system, and an elegant, if understated, interior. However, the Audi's low-speed manners and its ride, which is on the firm side, prevent it from taking top honors in the class.
The A6 we tested came with a four-cylinder engine and dual-clutch automatic transmission, which shine during hurried, spirited driving. The engine and transmission are alert, the sharp steering brings the driver into the action, and the superb braking performance adds a measure of control and confidence.
