    2017 Audi S6 OVERVIEW

    For buyers who find the midsize A6 sedan too sedate, Audi serves up a V8-powered variant known as the S6. While it looks just as respectable as its button-down brother, the S6 transforms into a beastly performer when asked.

    What's New for 2017

    Following last year's refresh, a new smartphone interface is the only change of note.

    Choosing Your Audi S6

    The S6's turbocharged 4-liter V8 develops a robust 450 horsepower, 117 more than the A6's most powerful engine. A seven-speed automated manual transmission does the shifting. Aggressive handling is assured thanks to a sport-tuned adaptive air suspension and 19-inch wheels with summer performance tires. As expected in an Audi, all-wheel drive and a selectable driving modes are standard.

    As in previous years, the S6 is offered in Premium Plus and Prestige trims:

    Premium Plus

    Comes with diamond-stitched leather sport seats with driver memory, four-zone climate control, a web-based navigation and information system, and a 10-speaker sound system with HD and satellite radio. For safety, there's a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, and front and rear parking sensors.


    Adds a 14-speaker Bose surround-sound system, full LED headlamps, a head-up display, and a power trunk lid.

    Both trims are eligible for a Sport package, which outfit the S6 with variable-ratio steering, revised exhaust outlets, and a performance differential that can transfer power between the rear wheels. The Driver Assistance package tacks on lane keeping assist, a surround-view camera system, active front collision mitigation, and adaptive cruise control with automatic braking and accelerating.

    The Individual Contour Seating package adds upgraded leather upholstery and 22-way multicontour front seats with ventilation and massage, plus passenger memory. You can also get heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel in the Cold Weather package.

    The Black Optic package spruces up the outside with 20-inch titanium-finish wheels, body-color mirrors, a gloss black single-frame grille, and gloss black window surrounds.

    The Prestige's standard Bose system and LED headlamps can be added to the Premium Plus as individual options. The Prestige can get a few exclusive options of its own: automatic soft-close doors, a 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround-sound system, and infrared night vision.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Some buyers will like the S6's sober appearance, which gives little indication of its performance potential. But if it looks too conservative for your taste, the Black Optic package adds just the right amount of intrigue for a reasonable $1,500.
