The 2018 Audi A6 is a moderately styled, however great looking fair size extravagance car. It does not have the fancy odds and ends others now offers, yet holds firm to its establishment as a skillful entertainer.
Very little has changed on the Audi A6 from a year ago, and the automaker has just rearranged packages to offer more features at a lower cost. Navigation and keyless start are standard on all models. The A6 is accessible in Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trims with fluctuating levels of common luxuries. (We cover the S6 independently.)
A year ago’s Competition trim was consolidated into the crease as a Competition package that is accessible on Premium Plus and Prestige trims outfitted with the V-6 engine. With respect to the uprated turbo V-6 from a year ago’s Competition trim that made 340 horsepower? That is presently the main V-6 on offer for purchasers hoping to overhaul from the standard 2.0-liter turbo-4.
Most models will highlight extravagance touches that will add to the $50,675 beginning value, which incorporates goal charges. Top models can achieve well into the mid-$60,000s when outfitted with phenomenal increases.
The A6’s little mystery is that it’s mechanically identified with the A7, which radically enhances the A6’s moderate style. Fortunately venturing into an A7 requires more than $70,000, and that high cost cuts a superior gap for section A6 purchasers who would prefer not to investigate their shoulders.

2018 Audi A6 Styling
The A6’s exterior hasn’t changed for a couple of years now, just including LED headlights and lashings of chrome in a moderate, enduring walk to the present appearance. It’s good looking and unpretentious; the most expressive component maybe is the corporate trapezoidal grille.
Contrasted with the more current Audi A4, the more established A6 demonstrates its age. At the point when the A6 is taken alone, it’s splendidly fine.
Inside, the cockpit is occupied, however exact. It’s shrewdly trimmed in a wide number of materials, however inconspicuous tones shield the interior from looking excessively occupied. A low, thin dash shrouds a fly up screen and we really incline toward it to the more up to date Audis fitted with a settled screen. The lasting installation in more current models has a rushed on look that we can’t get behind.

2018 Audi A6 Performance
Most forms will get a turbocharged inline-4 that makes 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, a 8-speed programmed, and all-wheel drive, which Audi calls Quattro. Just front-drive models of the A6 get a 7-speed programmed that is praiseworthy in its capability. It’s a double grasp programmed, so upshifts are quick fire quick, yet it’s worked for effectiveness and fiercely superior to an old constantly factor programmed that was standard in earlier years.
Most forms will be outfitted with all-wheel drive that consequently includes a 8-speed programmed that we like for its capacity to discover, hold, and swap gears effortlessly.
A discretionary supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 is evaluated at 340 hp and features for the most part an indistinguishable running apparatus from turbo-4 adaptations. It’s found in 3.0T variants of Premium Plus trims and standard on Prestige renditions of the A6.
The A6 is proficient in its taking care of in each model, yet not really roused. In our drives of various adaptations of the A6, we’ve observed it to be equipped yet in addition lacking direct criticism that we’d expect—particularly with more power. That is not massively shocking considering lively drives are the immediate domain of the all the more powerful S6, yet we would have valued a little stream down.
There’s a special case. The accessible Competition package includes a game arranged back limited slip differential that we’ve delighted in on different models. We haven’t inspected one on an A6 yet, so we can’t absolutely decide how it would respond.

2018 Audi A6 Comfort and Quality
Scarcely straightforward, the Audi A6 is likewise comfortable, yet not palatial.
The 2018 Audi A6 is an extravagance mid-sizer with space for four, or five of every a squeeze, and a useable trunk. It’s firmly identified with the A7, which has comparative measurements, yet a fastback shape that is better looking.
The front seats of the A6 are roomy and comfortable with a lot of set out room toward different body sorts. Room to breathe might be an issue for taller drivers on the grounds that the middle passage is more extensive than we were anticipating.
The front seats likewise get a shoutout: the headrests are comfortable without encroaching upon our space, a typical issue with more current dynamic headrests.
In back, 6-footers can fit behind other 6-footers, albeit raise situate travelers may have their knees pitched against the seats.
The back seats overlay down, yet not totally level. That helps the to some degree scanty trunk, which just holds 14.1 cubic feet of payload with the seats up. More freight territory is accessible in the A7, despite the fact that at an altogether higher cost. Like other extravagance cars from Germany, the A6 doesn’t have a bottomless supply of interior cubbies and load zone—we’re grateful for cupholders, obviously.
2018 Audi A6 Features
The 2018 Audi A6 makes sportier looks accessible on more models and navigation is presently standard. Every single good thing we say.
New this year for the 2018 Audi A6 is better standard tech and all the more generally accessible game packages.
That supplements an officially amazing arrangement of standard gear for each A6 demonstrate that incorporates a sunroof, power-flexible front seats, tri-zone atmosphere controls, 18-inch wheels, cowhide upholstery, a 7.0-inch LCD screen for infotainment, and warmed front seats.
This year, Prestige and Premium Plus trims can include Competition package adornments (when equipped with the V-6) that toss in sportier basins in advance, 20-inch wheels, red brake calipers, and a games raise differential that could enhance the auto’s performance. We haven’t yet determined an A6 fitted with the back differential, however different models offer the component and they can change those autos’ capacities to corner unhesitatingly. Audi approaches $3,000 for those overhauls, so we prompt alert. For ordinary day by day drivers, that may not be justified regardless of the coin, but rather for fans who are going back and forth about springing for a S6, the Competition package could be a sensible trade off.
Different choices to consider: a frosty climate package includes warmed back seats and a warmed directing wheel; updated calfskin covers up with ventilation and back rub; 19-inch wheels; and back side airbags.
One of our most loved features seems, by all accounts, to be taken off request sheets for 2018. A ultra-premium audio framework with 15 speakers by Bang and Olufsen was already accessible on the A6 for an incredible $4,900. Is it true that it was wanton? Beyond any doubt. Totally fundamental? Most likely not. Imperative gear to hear each inconspicuous, rich tone of “Room Oddity”? Indeed. Gracious, yes.
(We’ve contacted Audi to check whether the oversight was deliberate, yet haven’t yet heard back. We’ll report back.)
Different features, for example, a night vision camera and enhancing trims are accessible, albeit hardly accommodating.
Audi’s Multi-Media Interface (MMI) infotainment framework is likewise standard gear. MMI’s menus have been streamlined throughout the years and the alternate route catches are an appreciated alleviation, however the framework can at present be difficult to learn and take hours for new buyers to make sense of.
While there’s no touchscreen, there’s a touchpad called MMI Touch that permits some auxiliary info, including going about as preset catches for the audio framework, and as a Palm Pilot-style scratch cushion, on which the driver can work out letters with at the tip of their finger to enter goals or pick contacts from the telephone directory.
