    2019 Audi A6 OVERVIEW

    Audi is doing its best to make the 2019 A6 exciting. The model gets a full redesign this year, and while Audi’s technology and polish continue to lead the pack, the A6 remains a safe and conservative bet.

    What's New for 2019

    The Audi A6 is all-new for 2019. The styling is new, but the body dimensions are nearly identical to the outgoing generation. The interior and safety technology are overhauled, most notably in the form of dual touchscreen controls. All powertrains are now fitted with minimal hybrid assistance, although only a V6 will be available at launch on American shores.

    Choosing Your Audi A6

    A 2.0-liter Volkswagen engine is almost certainly on the way, but to start, the only engine option in the new A6 is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. It’s the same engine that powers Audi’s flagship A8, making 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. That’s a slight drop in horsepower over last year’s (supercharged) V6, but a significant gain in torque. The engine is joined by a small battery in what Audi calls a “mild” hybrid system, which works in combination with a stop-start system to improve mileage.

    A seven-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels using Audi’s Quattro system, which disengages the rear driveshaft under light loads to maximize efficiency. Fuel economy estimates have not yet been released by the EPA, but expect the numbers to equal or improve upon last year’s V6 benchmark of 20 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway, and 23 combined.

    Cargo capacity behind the rear seats is 13.7 cubic feet, which is average among similar vehicles. Interior fit and finish is predictably quality, with details like contrast stitching on all trims. The exterior styling remains staunchly on-brand, but includes sharp features like LED headlights and running lights.

    The big-ticket addition to the 2019 A6’s list of standard features is the central pair of touchscreens. The upper screen starts at 8.8 inches and swells up to 10.1 inches on larger trims. It controls infotainment, navigation (which is standard), and audio. The lower screen is 8.6 inches on its own, and can either control HVAC settings or become a large, touch-sensitive writing pad. Menus are customizable, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility are included, and both screens offer haptic feedback.

    Remaining features are divided across three trims: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige.


    With a starting price of $59,895 (all prices include the $995 destination charge), the A6 Premium is the cheapest way into the line. It still comes with an impressive list of standard features, including automatic wipers, low-speed automatic emergency braking, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and a panoramic sunroof. The exterior gets auto-dimming, powered, and heated side mirrors, while the interior includes three-zone automatic climate control, wood inlays, ambient lighting, and auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seats, heated power-adjustable front seats, and illuminated door sills.

    Three packages round out the features. The Cold Weather Package ($600) adds heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel. A 20-Inch Sport Package ($1,050) adds (of course) 20-inch rims with a lowered sport suspension. Finally, a Convenience Package ($1,300) includes keyless start, a hands-free trunk release, wireless phone charging, memory settings for the side mirrors, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and forward collision warning. Notable standalone options are rear side airbags ($350) and a CD/DVD player ($150).

    Premium Plus

    Occupying the Goldilocks position in the lineup is the A6 Premium Plus, which starts at $63,695. To start, Audi upgrades the driver layout with a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster. The infotainment is larger as well, with a 10.1-inch upper touchscreen connected to a premium Bang and Olufsen sound system. All the features from the Premium trim’s Convenience Package come standard, as do intelligent high beams and headlight washers.

    The Cold Weather and 20-inch Sport Packages remain in place, but they’re joined by two additional bundles. The first is a Warm Weather Package ($1,800), which upgrades to four-zone automatic climate control, a power rear sunshade, ventilated front seats, and power lumbar adjustment for the front passenger. The other is a Driver Assistance Package ($2,750), which includes adaptive cruise control with turn assist and traffic-jam assist, active lane assist, an intersection assistant, and traffic-sign recognition. Audi lists a Contour Seating Package with premium Valcona leather on the way, but it’s not available for order yet. Standalone options remain the same as the Premium trim.


    The premiere A6 Prestige starts at $68,095. The driver gets a head-up display, the front seats are ventilated, the headlights become more angular, and the doors close on their own power, as does the trunk. All the features of the Warm Weather Package come standard, along with dual-pane acoustic glass.

    Other than the Warm Weather Package, all other packages remain in place at the same prices. Audi’s model materials include a 21-inch wheel package and an adaptive chassis package with all-wheel steering, but as of writing neither is available. Two unique standalone options are available on the Prestige trim: a 19-speaker upgraded Bang and Olufsen sound system ($4,900) and a night vision assistant with pedestrian detection ($2,500). Other standalone options remain the same.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Unless you’re after the full suite of safety technology, the 2019 Audi A6 Premium will be plenty of luxury for most buyers. And if you're in the market for the tech, you may just want to check out the A8 instead.
