The 2015 Audi A6 is a solid contender in the mid-size luxury segment–competing most readily with the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and Cadillac CTS–but some of the greatest competition comes within its own brand, thanks to a very sleek Audi A7, and a slightly more affordable Audi A4.
The A6 and performance-oriented S6 sedans are handsome vehicles, and we’ve commended Audi on its contoured sheetmetal and sleek designs in the past. However, even the A6 sits in the shadows of its mechanically similar, far less predictable A7 hatchback sibling. That car has been a top pick amongst our editors, while the A6 has received received more conventional scores with its more conventional design. The good news here is that the interiors are identical in both cars, and passengers will enjoy a mix of rich finishes, comfortable seating, and a long list of feature technologies.
The Audi A6 midsize luxury sedan is available with front- or all-wheel drive and a range of engines that includes a turbocharged four-cylinder, supercharged V-6 or turbo-diesel V-6. A related S6 performance version, which makes 420 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged V-8, is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section. Competitors include the BMW 5 Series, Cadillac CTS, Jaguar XF and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
The A6 offers all the active-safety features you’ll find on its luxury peers from Mercedes-Benz and BMW including front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, blind-spot monitors, a night-vision system, and a head-up display. It’s earned top five-star results from the federal government in crash-testing, as well as top ‘good’ ratings from the IIHS in all of the areas it’s been tested (although not yet the tough small overlap test).

2015 Audi A6 Interior
A6 Prestige models come at the top of the model line. And what’s confusing is that you can add a $6,550 Prestige Package to them, which adds a lot of good stuff like distinct 18-inch wheels; four-zone climate control; adaptive headlights; LED interior lighting; a Bose speaker package; ventilated front seats; a power-adjustable steering column; cornering lights; and S-line cosmetic trim, including its own grille and bumpers. S6 models are only offered in Prestige trim.
On the base A6, there’s a standard sunroof; power front seats; cruise control; leather upholstery; 17-inch wheels; tri-zone automatic climate control; power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt/telescoping steering; pushbutton start; AM/FM/XM/CD audio with a 6.5-inch LCD screen; and LED taillamps. Heated front seats are now standard, as of last year.
The next step in A6 features consists of the Premium Plus package. It adds a seven-inch color display; 18-inch wheels and tires; a CD changer (for anyone who still uses physical artifacts); HD Radio; real-time traffic data; front and rear parking sensors; and Audi Connect, and an in-car wireless data service through T-Mobile. Audi Connect taps that data stream to enable Google Earth navigation maps and traffic information. Audi’s system also allows you to plan and send up to 50 destinations to the car’s navigation system from a computer and Google Maps.

2015 Audi A6 Exterior
German automakers are notorious for their nearly identical sedans, offered in three lengths. That can be a tough spot for the A6, which doesn’t quite look like an A8, doesn’t look too dissimilar from the A4, and doesn’t have quite the same flair as the A7 hatchback. Don’t get us wrong; it’s a good-looking sedan with handsome sheetmetal and crisp, clean lines. It’s just a little more anonymous than some of the other Audis, making it a little more difficult to spend the extra money over the A4 sedan on styling alone.
All that said, the A6 interior has dozens of pieces, panel joints, air vents, and metallic trim, which can add up to a busy look in some combinations, although a clear control layout helps with that. The A6’s instrument panel is slim and rather low, which means the optional navigation system’s LCD screen must flip incongruously out of the dash. And Audi’s signature red lighting doesn’t always work with some of the more exotic interior treatments, like its layered-oak look.

2015 Audi A6 Engine
he A6’s base drivetrain pairs a 220-horsepower, 2.0-liter four with either a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive, or an eight-speed automatic and quattro all-wheel drive. The four isn’t slow, either; expect 0 to 60 mph times at about 7.5 seconds, up to a top speed of 130 mph. The CVT here does its best to pretend that it’s a conventional automatic and even offers a sport mode, paddle-shifters, and simulated ratios but we’d take the eight-speed automatic and quattro with the 2.0T any day. And for pure efficiency, we’d choose the excellent A6 TDI, with a 240-hp turbodiesel six and an eight-speed automatic, a 0-60 mph time of about 5.5 seconds, and an EPA rating of 24/38 mpg, or 29 mpg combined.
Higher up on the performance scale are the supercharged six and turbocharged eights. The 310-horsepower supercharged V-6 that’s offered in the A6 is paired with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission for a 0-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds. It’s a flexible, fairly muted powerplant but it’s easily outstripped by the 420-horsepower turbocharged V-8 engine found in the S6. The S6’s seven-speed S tronic gearbox and performance upgrades ensure excitement is just a tap-shift away and that 60 mph is just 4.5 seconds away.
The S6 is the monster of the group. With a 420-horsepower, 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, a sport suspension, upgraded brakes, and an available torque-vectoring sport differential, the S6 offers a 0-60 mph time of about 4.5 seconds, as well as more satisfying handling, all without giving up much comfort to its big 21-inch wheels and optional summer tires.
The other flavors of the A6 are also strikingly fast performers that don’t sacrifice that much efficiency. The mid-line option is a gasoline-powered 3.0-liter V-6, with supercharging and direct injection. By the numbers, this V-6 blasts out 310 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, all harnessed to the eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive with a rear torque bias of 40:60. Audi says it’s good for 0-60 mph times of 5.4 seconds, and the same governed top speed of 130 mph. It’s slightly more refined in feel than the TDI, but by so little it’s a difficult justification.
The mostly passion-free standard Audi A6 pairs a continuously variable transmission with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 220 horsepower. It’s a combo rendered more sedate by the A6’s size and weight even more so with the optional all-wheel drive, which at least adopts an eight-speed automatic instead of the CVT. It’s not slow, with 0-60 mph times in the 7.5-second range, but it’s a less convincing example of luxury in context here, especially with the CVT, which takes away some of what we love so much about the turbo four.
