2016 Audi A6

Buyer's Guide

With a new generation said to be arriving sometime in 2017, the A6 sedan is approaching the end of its current life cycle. But sales remain strong in spite of its age, which is a testament to Audi’s enduring reputation for quality.

There are two engine options for this model year. Both are gasoline-powered due to Audi’s inclusion in the Volkswagen Group stop-sale order on diesels by the EPA, and both come equipped with Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system and are paired exclusively with an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.

The four-cylinder 2.0 TFSI starts at $56,900 and makes 252 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque (10.8/7.3 L/100 km city/hwy), while the six-cylinder 3.0 TFSI is priced from $63,700 and makes 333 hp and 326 lb-ft (11.6/7.9 L/100 km).

Both powertrains are available in either Progressiv or Technik trim with the respective specs being close to identical on each.

With either engine, the base Progressiv trim comes equipped with 18” wheels, start-stop technology, a movement-activated trunk, eight-way power front seats with driver’s seat four-way lumbar support, heated front and rear seats and steering wheel, a 10-speaker sound system, three-zone climate control, navigation, a sunroof, and numerous other up-market features.

The top Technik trim – again, regardless of engine – adds an upgrade to 19” wheels, ventilated front seats, a rear and top view camera, power trunk open/close, four-zone climate control, a Bose 14-speaker sound system, and the Audi Side Assist lane-change assistant, among other options. With the 3.0 TFSI, Technik also includes a power sunshade for the rear window as well as manual shades for the rear side windows.

Available packages include the S Line Sport Package, which upgrades the wheels on each trim by 1” and adds sporty visual accents, the Black Optics Package (available only as an add-on to S Line Sport), the Multicontour Front Seats Package that adds 14-way power front seats with premium leather and a massaging function, and the Driver Assistant Package with Pre Sense Plus collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality, and an active lane assistant.

Audi A6 Quattro 2.8L 1999
I've owned this car during 2 years. The quattro is so usefull for winter, it's really make the rail more safe. The general performance is really great as well and this car is full equip.

The reason why I sold it was the fuel consummation and the cost of the piece when broken.

2005 Audi A6

by Edwin_U on 10-11-2012
Good executive cruiser
I had absolutely no trouble with this car over the 4 years that I owned it. It was a good highway car and had plenty of space in it to seat my family comfortably. Interior styling is top notch. Drive is great.

My friends commented that they found the ride too firm. I like the direct feel and prefer it over the more cushy american and japanese ride style.

My only other negative on this car was that as the car got a little older I found the styling dated very quickly. Audis look really great when the designs are first released but if you look at the previous generation on the road they look very plain. BMWs age better in my opinion.

2010 Audi A6

Worth every penny
What more is there to say...love it!!! There isn't one thing so far that I don't love about this car. I've only got 20k on it but it drives like a dream, I feel like a $1m in it and there hasn't been even one issue mechanically in two years.
