    Expert Rating

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

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

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2018 Audi A6 OVERVIEW

    With resurgent competition from BMW and Mercedes-Benz, it might be easy to write off the long-in-the-tooth Audi A6. But don't tell Audi that, as the German brand has introduced a few small updates for 2018 designed to keep this executive sedan fresh until the next generation arrives.

    What's New for 2018

    Audi's MMI navigation and infotainment system and passive entry are standard on all the variants for 2018. The mid-range Premium Plus trim now gets LED headlights and ambient lighting, while the Prestige variant includes a surround-view camera.

    Audi discontinued the A6's Competition trim, converting it into a $3,000 package for V6-powered models. The pack includes black side-view mirror housings, red brake calipers, 20-inch wheels, a sport suspension and differential, a different steering-wheel design, and a black headliner.

    Choosing Your Audi A6

    The entry-level A6 continues with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed automatic gearbox sends the power to the front wheels. The Quattro all-wheel drive system, with an eight-speed automatic transmission, is an optional (and recommended) feature. Fuel economy is 25 miles per gallon in city, 34 highway, 28 mpg combined for FWD model and 22/31/26 mpg for AWD.

    For more performance, customers can opt for a 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 engine that makes 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, allowing the A6 to hit 60 in just over five seconds. The eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are standard. Look for an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon city, 29 highway, and 23 mpg combined.


    The A6 Premium is offered with the 2.0-liter engine only. The FWD model starts at $50,675, while the AWD version costs $52,875.Features include xenon headlights with LED running lights, 18-inch wheels, three-zone climate control, leather upholstery, a memory function for driver seat, sunroof, cruise control, passive entry with push-button start, and a seven-inch MMI infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

    Regarding the options, we suggest the Sport Pack ($1,050), which adds 19-inch wheels, sport suspension and black headliner and the Cold Weather Pack ($500), which adds a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats. There's also a Black Optic package that adds lots of gloss-black trim and black wheels in 19- or 20-inch diameters.

    Premium Plus

    The A6 Premium Plus has three possible configurations – 2.0 TFSI with front-wheel drive, retailing at $52,875, 2.0 TFSI with Quattro all-wheel drive, costing $55,075, and the 3.0, supercharged example, priced at $59,675.

    Regardless of the variant you pick, the Premium Plus gets all the components of the Premium trim plus full LED headlights, four-zone climate control, a 14-speaker Bose audio system, blind-spot monitoring, and ambient lighting.

    In addition to the Cold Weather and Sport packs, you should also check out the $2,000 Driver Assistance Package, which adds items such as adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist system, front collision warning with automatic braking and automatic headlights. The aforementioned Competition Package, available on the V6-powered model only, will set you back $3,000.


    The A6 Prestige is priced at $62,375 and comes standard with the V6 engine. Features include those on the lower variants plus a head-up display, an eight-way adjustable driver seat with four-way lumbar support, a top-view camera, and power-operated tailgate.

    The optional packages are similar to the Premium Plus trim. However, there’s also a $3,350 Comfort Seating Package, which includes memory function for the passenger seat, ventilated front seats with massage, and luxurious Valcona leather upholstery. It's worth the expense if you're regularly putting in long drives.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The entry-level A6 is well-equipped and our ideal pick as long you don’t mind the 2.0-liter engine. While the features on the Premium Plus and Prestige trims are appealing, the reality is that the price is too good to ignore. Plan on adding extra for Quattro all-wheel drive, especially if you regularly drive in the snow and ice.
