Overview

What's New

The 2020 Audi A6 receives specification tweaks for the new model year after last year's introduction. Newly standard features on the base Premium model include lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and heated, auto-dimming, and power-folding side mirrors.

The Premium Plus trim receives a heated steering wheel and Audi's Virtual Cockpit Plus system, while the Prestige gets adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and heated rear seats.

Choosing Your Audi A6

The Audi A6 comes in three trims: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Pricing starts at $55,895 including destination for the Premium and climbs to $65,795 for the Prestige.

Engine Choices

There are two engines available on the A6. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder dubbed 45 TFSI is standard, while a 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder labeled 55 TFSI is available on every trim for $4,900.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder248 hp273 lb-ft27 mpg
3.0L Turbo 6-Cylinder335 hp369 lb-ft24 mpg

Both engines are paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, while Audi's quattro all-wheel-drive system is standard.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Audi A6 has seating for five and offers 13.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity in the trunk.

Safety Features

Improvements for 2020 give every A6 lane departure warning and automatic high beams, while automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, and front and rear parking sensors are also standard.

The mid-range Premium Plus adds rear cross-traffic alert, a vehicle exit warning system, and a surround-view camera system. The Prestige is equipped with adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, traffic jam assist, traffic sign recognition, and a head-up display. These features are available on the Premium Plus through the Driver Assistance Package ($1,750).

Connectivity

The standard infotainment system comprises an 8.6-inch touchscreen beneath an 8.8-inch upper screen. Navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice control, Amazon Alexa, HD radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and four USB ports are included.

The Premium Plus and Prestige receive a 10.1-inch upper display and wireless charging.

Premium - From $55,895

The A6 Premium wants for very little in terms of standard equipment. It rides on 19-inch wheels and features heat-insulating glass and LED headlights, taillights, and daytime running lights. A panoramic sunroof brightens a cabin that features niceties such as leather upholstery, three-zone climate control, eight-way power front seats, and heated front seats.

For $1,300, the Convenience Package is a worthwhile addition. It bundles keyless entry, push button start, a hands-free trunk release, wireless charging, a heated steering wheel, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Premium Plus - From $59,595

Premium Plus option buyers benefit from upgrades including Audi’s Virtual Cockpit Plus, which includes a 12.3-inch driver information display with three visual modes. Additional upgrades include a 16-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system, a heated steering wheel, keyless entry, push button start, a hands-free trunk release, and differently designed headlights.

The $2,250 Executive Package introduces some big-car luxuries, including ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, four-zone climate control, a power open/close trunk, and multicolor interior ambient lighting.

Prestige - From $65,795

In addition to the aforementioned active safety features, models with the Prestige option benefit from power soft-close doors, the power open/close trunk, four-zone climate control, dual-pane acoustic glass, 12-way power front seats, and heated and ventilated front seats.

The $3,250 Luxury Package lives up to its name by adding Valcona leather seating, 18-way power front seats with memory and massage functionality, a power rear window sunshade, and leather to the dashboard, armrests, and center console.

CarsDirect Tip

Despite some extra safety features, it’s hard to justify the cost of 2020 Audi A6 Prestige models. The same goes for the six-cylinder engine unless you really crave the extra power. This makes the Premium Plus with the base engine our value pick of the lineup.

Typical Audi design. The 2020 Audi A6 wears its sheet metal well and is designed to look very similar to other Audi models. This isn't a bad thing, although you may have some difficulty distinguishing some models at first glance.

The A6's canvas is low and sleek, marked by a broad, octagonal grille and distinct LED lights front and back. It features pronounced character lines, large wheels, and chrome finishing.

Inside, the cabin includes fine wood, leather, and other high-end materials befitting a luxury sedan. The two-screen display seems over the top, but it's a unique design nevertheless.

Robust power and then some. Audi supplies the A6 with a choice of two turbocharged engines. The standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder develops 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque and is a good place to begin. It delivers ample step-off acceleration and decent passing power.

For a more spirited drive, the 3.0-liter turbo-six rolls out 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Opt for the second choice and the available suspension upgrade if you crave strong performance and have some cash to spare.

Power is sent to all four wheels as Audi's legendary quattro all-wheel-drive system holds sway. Both engines are surprisingly efficient too, with the standard arrangement delivering 27 miles per gallon combined and the V6 24 mpg combined, according to the EPA.


Audi A6

Intersection of comfort and luxury. Comfort and luxury are two hallmarks of premium sedans, and the A6 aces both.

The interior is beautifully crafted with standard leather-trimmed seats, metallic touches, and real wood trim. Automatic climate control, power front seats, and cooled massaging seats are other features of note.

If there's a downside to this sedan, it's with the trunk. Offering just 13.7 cubic feet of cargo space, we've found larger trunks in certain mainstream compact models. It has a wide opening and a low floor, but if you're looking for more space, the Audi Q5 might prove the better choice.

Safety an important ingredient. We're happy Audi takes safety very seriously, not just with the design and standard features, but with the many advanced driver-assist technologies commonly available today.

To begin, every A6 has automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. Adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera system, and lane keeping assist come standard on higher trims. These are the kinds of equipment consumers expect these days.

The IIHS has incrementally raised the crash testing bar, making it more difficult for manufacturers to achieve its coveted designations. Nevertheless, the A6 earned a Top Safety Pick Plus award.

However, this doesn't apply to the base model that misses out on the LED headlights that come standard starting on the Premium Plus. Still, that's quite a feat and it offers buyers a measure of confidence going in.

Final thoughts. The 2020 Audi A6 excels in its segment, even as the market for sedans continues to shrink. For consumers still in the game, the A6 is a formidable competitor to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class as well as the BMW 5-Series.

The well-equipped Prestige trim with the V6 engine costs about $70,000, which is the starting price for the Audi A7. The A7 offers greatly improved storage space and may be the better choice for consumers not wanting to make the switch to utility vehicles.
