: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

Overview

The A6 is offered in two models: the FrontTrak 2.0T Premium and the quattro 3.0 Premium. FrontTrak models are outfitted with a 211-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, paired with a Multitronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), while quattro models get a 300-hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6, mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic manual mode; both engines feature FSI direct gasoline injection. New for 2012, an electromechanical steering system and Audi Drive Select program augment efficiency and handling. Standard equipment includes a power sunroof, 17-inch aluminum wheels, three-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, satellite radio and an Audi Music Interface. A Premium Plus package is available for both models, featuring 18-inch aluminum wheels, Xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lamps, HD radio and Audi Connect with internet access, along with a MMI navigation plus system featuring extended functionality, including touchpad control, real-time traffic information and internal memory for digital media storage. Safety features include electronic stability and traction control systems, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes with brake assist, active anti-whiplash front head restraints and six airbags; rear side-impact airbags, front/rear parking sensors and an Audi Side Assist blind spot monitor are optional. The Audi pre sense collision mitigation system is standard on every A6 for 2012; night vision assist, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights and a head-up display are also available. The Audi A6 is completely redesigned for 2012, with exterior and interior styling revisions, as well as new technologies that enhance safety, performance and convenience. The FrontTrak Sedan now gets an efficient four-cylinder turbocharged engine, while an 8-speed automatic transmission replaces the previous model year's 6-speed on quattro models. Additionally, the Avant (wagon) body style is no longer offered.
