The new Audi A6

What the critics say about Audi's new $49,900 midsize luxury sedan

Motor Trend
“Not looking to make a splash?” The all-new edition of Audi’s midsize luxury sedan “breaks no new ground” stylewise, and it lifts many of its best features from the automaker’s bigger A8 and sleek new A7 coupe. But if you’re okay with yawns at the valet stand, this car is a worthy choice. It offers “an orgy of technology” and is “designed to transport you and your human cargo in safety, elegance, and serious comfort.”

Car and Driver
“The A6 will stay on top of things even when the driver isn’t.” Its crash-sensing system hits the brakes when it detects looming disaster. The car is also a traveling Wi-Fi hot spot, and it has a navigation system that can be controlled by voice or even sloppily handwritten letters. Audi’s interiors “have been best in class for years,” and yet the new A6 raises the bar significantly.

Los Angeles Times
The A6 is also an assured driving machine, thanks to a “velvety smooth,” turbocharged V6 engine and refined Quattro all-wheel-drive. While we’d prefer more feedback from the steering and suspension, the A6 undeniably “does nearly everything well, better than most of its peers.” So what if it does it in “a more quiet and humble manner” than its Audi kin?
