Introduction

The Audi A6 is a midsize near-luxury sedan with a reserved demeanor, no nonsense, while offering the features, refinement and safety found on more expensive sedans. Underneath, the A6 is much like the A7, without the passion or athleticism expressed by the A7’s sheetmetal. That’s not the mission of the A6.

The A6 with the passion mission is the S6, having something special under the hood, namely a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 with 450 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. It’s got quattro all-wheel drive and a seven-speed twin-clutch transmission, an engineering technology where Audi has always been a step ahead.

Standard engine in the A6 is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. It uses either a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with front-wheel drive, or an 8-speed automatic with quattro all-wheel drive. It gets excellent fuel mileage, EPA rated at 28 Combined miles per gallon.

Quattro is proven, after many years of Audi again being a step ahead in all-wheel drive development. It’s well worth the cost, if inclement weather is in the car’s life.

There’s also a supercharged 3.0-liter V6, making 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, with an 8-speed automatic and quattro. It’s a sweet engine, in a perfect spot between the four-cylinder and V8. It comes with both the Prestige model and Sport model, and works for both.

The only changes for the 2018 A6 are shuffled packages bringing more features at a lower price. The former Competition model becomes the Sport model, with a Competition package available.

Lineup

The A6 Premium ($49,700) with the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine comes with front-wheel drive or with quattro all-wheel drive ($51,900). Features include Google Earth maps, in-car high-speed data, and Bluetooth audio streaming. Navigation and keyless ignition are standard on all models.

There’s also a Sport model with front-wheel drive ($51,200) or quattro ($53,400), with a flat-bottomed steering wheel and Valcona leather seats.

A6 Prestige ($56,500) comes with the supercharged 3.0-liter V6. There’s also a Sport model with the V6 and quattro all-wheel drive ($58,000).

The S6 is available in Premium Plus ($71,900) and Prestige ($74,400) trim.

Walkaround

The A6 is handsome, if understated. Its roofline sweeps back like a coupe. But it’s starting to show its age, even with LED headlamps. It’s rounded at the corners, and has sharp character lines on the sides, and the huge grille.

The A6 isn’t as stylish as the A7 with its lower roofline. But it can look hot, with the Black Optic package, including 20-inch wheels.

The S6 is sinewy, with a muscular hood bulging with a V8, and black trapezoidal grille. A character line runs along the sides, just under the windowline, and only shows itself in the sun, when wearing light colors. At the rear, there’s a small diffuser that hints at a need for speed, and quad-tipped exhaust ports that fire a V8 bellow into the sky.

Interior

The dashboard and instrument panel are low and slim, with a pop-up display screen in the center. The standard S trim spruces up the interior.

The A6 has less room in the cabin than many midsize cars, because its nose is longer and it trunk shorter (with an average 14.1 cubic feet). There’s still good head and legroom, although taller drivers might find their right knee hitting the wide center tunnel.

The front seat is highly comfortable, we like the headrests. Heated and ventilated front seats are available, standard on the Prestige model.

Two six-footers can fit in back, with their knees touching the front seatbacks. The rear seats are highly comfortable; they fold for cargo, but not completely flat.

The fit and finish in the cabin is excellent, as it should be for a fifty-thousand-dollar (starting price) car. There are dozens of joints and seams in the trim and upholstery, it’s not easy to get them all right.

Like other German sedans, small storage bins in the cabin are few, and cupholders are small, although the door pockets have spots for water bottles. The center armrest bin is shallow and the glovebox small.

There’s an available head-up display, showing primarily the car’s speed, near the bottom of the windshield.

The S6 gets contrast stitching and available red hides, with carbon trim.

Driving Impressions

The A6 performance is solid, admirable, with a good ride. The 2.0-liter turbocharged makes a strong 252 horsepower and super-strong 273 pound-feet of torque, while the 7-speed dual clutch automated gearbox shifts with precision and speed, while being good for fuel mileage.

Quattro uses an 8-speed automatic that we like for its ability to find, hold, and swap gears with ease.

We’ve got a lot of seat time in different versions of the A6, and have found the handling to be consistently adept but uninspired, and short on feedback. The 3.0-liter is more engaging, but still without passion.

The supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 makes 333 horsepower in the Prestige and 340 in the Sport. Its 325 pound-feet of torque gives it oomph. The Competition package adds a sport-oriented rear limited slip differential that we’ve enjoyed on other models.

The S6 offers a lot performance for the $72k price, although it can’t match American iron on that score. Its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 might be hugely powerful, but it’s also compact, and mounted as far back in the engine bay as possible, for better weight distribution and handling. The cornering is precise, although somewhat disconnected from the road.

Using its 450 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque, the S6 accelerates from zero to sixty in just 4.3 seconds. That’s about the same as its German competitors the Mercedes-AMG E43 sedan and BMW M550i xDrive.

The Quattro in the S6 is 40/60 front-to-rear split. The 7-speed dual-clutch automatic is seamless.

There’s and available sports rear differential that helps the control in turns, but it comes with a dynamic steering package that changes the ratio in a non-progressive and unpredictable fashion. We could do without it. But the rear differential might be worth it.

Summary

The 252-horsepower 2.0 turbo is a good engine with a great transmission, while the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 is worth its extra $5k, if you need 340 horsepower. The styling is smooth but dated, and the cabin is a bit small. The S6 throws 450 horsepower at you. It’s fast and handles competently, but there are sedans that are faster and handle better.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
