Choosing Your Audi A6

The A6 starts out as a front-driver powered by a 220-horsepower turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder, matched to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The available all-wheel drive system comes with an eight-speed automatic. Both of those features are standard with the supercharged 3-liter V6, which develops 310 horsepower for noticeably quicker acceleration. For a balance of power and efficiency, you can go with the available 3-liter turbo-diesel V6. The TDI makes 240 horsepower and delivers an excellent 29 mpg in combined driving. Audi's Select Drive system with adjustable driving modes is standard with all drivetrains.

The A6's trim levels break out according to engine:

2.0T Premium

Carries the 2-liter turbo, plus leather seating with heat in front, a sunroof, Bluetooth phone, automatic wipers and headlights, and a 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio.

2.0T Premium Plus

Adds a navigation system, keyless ignition, a rearview camera, parking sensors, upgraded exterior lighting and 18-inch wheels.

3.0T Premium Plus

Comes with the 3-liter supercharged V6 and all-wheel drive in addition to everything found on the 2.0T Premium Plus. You also get Audi Pre-Sense Basic, which tightens the seatbelts and closes the car's windows and sunroof when an impeding collision is detected.

3.0T Prestige

Gets interior upgrades such as a Bose sound system, ventilated front seats and four-zone climate control, plus adaptive headlights and styling accents on the outside. For enhanced safety, there's blind-sport monitoring and a rear collision warning system.

TDI Premium Plus

Equipped like the 3.0T Premium Plus, except for the turbo-diesel V6 under the hood.

TDI Prestige

Combines the Prestige upgrades with the turbo-diesel engine.

The Driver Assistance package equips the A6 with advanced safety technology like a surround-view camera system, active collision mitigation and adaptive cruise control. The Innovation package adds a head-up display and night vision. There's also a Sport package with an upgraded suspension and larger wheels, and a Cold Weather Package featuring heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel. A 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround sound system is available as a standalone option.

CarsDirect Tip

The A6 is very competitively priced until you get the Prestige model, where you really need to think about whether the extras you're getting are worth the price.
