Audi A6 Pros and Cons

The Audi A6 first appeared in 1968 as the Audi 100. Originally intended to be the company’s flagship model, the A6 has gone a long way since with the four generations released in the past few decades. The current generation A6 boasts of steel and aluminum hybrid construction and recorded statistics that impress serious car fanatics. But how far does this model stands out as a front-wheel drive vehicle has yet to be determined, considering the variety of models released by other top brands.

Pros

You have two options when it comes to the Audi A6: an Avant or the saloon. We recommend getting the 3.0-litre TFSI V6 quattro petrol engine, which can reach 62mph in just 5.5 seconds. Its top speed goes up to 155mph when given an electronic limit. This is an impressive range for a vehicle that weighs 1,740 kg. Three gearboxes can complement the engine: a seven-speed S tronic, a six-speed manual for a front-wheel, or an eight-speed mulitronic. Front-wheel drive models usually offer the multitronic CVT. The S tronic is the standard for Quattro models. If you prefer electric hybrid power, the Audi A6 offers the 2.0-litre petrol engine plus an automatic gearbox for better fuel economy.

As for diesel engines, the Audi A6 saloon has the 174bhp 2.0-litre TDI, a 241bhp 3.0-litre V6 TDI, and a 201bhp 3.0-litre. Expect a 0 to 62mph performance for the 174bhp engine, a sprint that it can make in just 8.7 seconds. Top speed reaches up to 141 mph for the said engine.

The Audi A6 boasts of a lighter design that improves acceleration, breaks, cutting through corners, and environmental sustainability. The shape is pretty impressive as well, making the A6 a model that distinguishes itself in appearance. Within this sleek exterior is a north-south engine found under its modern bonnet. Over the shoulder visibility is improved thanks to Slim C-pillars and better rear quarterlights. Boot aperture, however, is rather small but still provides a 535-litre capacity. 

Cons

The interiors could use a little improvement. The materials are world class and the cabin a feast on the eyes, but offers very little in ergonomically improving what’s seen in the previous A6. Some of the graphics do not appear as progressive or modern as the BMW or Mercedes models. In terms of function, the manual car pedals are too far on the right and may be a challenge for drivers after a smoother experience.

The interior also falls short in achieving the distinct mark Audi is known for. The current interior is still ergonomically similar to the previous generation's, despite other brands moving on in their own present designs. The Mercedes is now a serious contender, along with the BMW's iDrive becoming more distinguished compared to the A6's interior features. The graphics also aren't as updated. The total luxury Audi is known for doesn't feel complete in this vehicle.

The ride, however, is worth the wait and catches up competitively with the rest of the market. Impressive body control assures riders and drivers that they will deal with very little discomfort as they go through low-speed urban bumps. Composure is well handled, as seen in testing roads results.

Evolution of the Audi A6

The Audi A6 is a German-made car that comes in saloon or wagon models. All the generations of the A6 can be used in either front-wheel drive or Torsen-based four wheel drive.

The first generation A6 was also called the C4 and debuted in 1994 to 1997. The A6 was a remodeled and rebranded Audi 100. It underwent a major facelift to improve its design. The A6 utilized a 1.8 litre 20v inline four-cylinder engine and a 2.8 litre 30v V6 petrol engine.

The second generation A6 was called the C5 and debuted in 1997 to 2004. The car followed the Volkswagen Group C5 platform. The new design and improvements of the second generation A6 were made to compete with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the BMW 5-Series. This generation A6 used a 2.4 litre 30-valve V6 engine and a 2.8 litre V6 engine. During its lifetime, the second generation A6 also used the groundbreaking multitronic continuously variable transmission.

The latest generation Audi A6, C7 Typ 4G, debuted in 2011. This generation was heavily patterned after the Audi A8. The car increased its wheelbase by almost 3-inches. The redesigning of the A6 helped reduce the drag coefficient to 0.26 Cd. The latest A6 uses two petrol engines such as the 2.8 litre FSI V6 204 horse power engine and the 3.0 litre supercharged FSI engine.
