2010 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6A)


Review

Traded in an '09 A4 for a '10 A6 3.0T Prestige with 18" sport package. The A4 was a great, fun car, but the A6 is better in so many ways larger, smoother and much more powerful engine. Love the understated, classiness of the A6 with its power, handling, and all the techno goodies. Car is quiet, solid and stable cruising serenely @ 70-80mph, and can also be driven fast/hard. Gas mileage so far is pretty good for a car of this size/power - averaging 21-22 with 70-80% highway. Very happy that I traded up! Car and Driver just did a comparison test and rated the 2010 A6 ahead of the NEW 2011 BMW 535 (3rd) and 2011 Infiniti M37 (2nd).


Favorite Features

Power and smoothness of 300 hp supercharged engine. Amaretto & Black interior. Looks and handling of 18" sport package (w/ all season tires). All the techno goodies in the Prestige trim. Almost forgot the LED DRLs and taillights.


Suggested Improvements

Cooled seats.

2010 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6A)


Review

Bought my 1st Audi ever, 10,000 miles and going,love it,used to drive a Range Rover sport supercharged before.Audi handling is much better,even in the snow,glue to the ground. Feels safe in the cold, snowy,winter. Checked out the BMW 5series, Acura TL, Volvo, Mercedes Benz E-350 but fell in love with LED lights. Drive it everyday, acceleration wonderful, sound system great,love the MMI. Bluetooth perfect.


Favorite Features

Bluetooth, mmi, navigation system, exterior design. Nicer without front plates,


Suggested Improvements

Heated seats and steering not hot enough, need more heat pls, more space in the glove compartments. Car is a bit noisy in the rain especially the rear passenger area, Ipod in the glove compartment a big no no. Need better location for cup holders, parking sensors

2010 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6A)


Review

Was a BMW person for 20 years, tried Infiniti, but always liked the Audi designs, and after making the comparison, decided to lease an Audi A6 Premium Plus (3.0T) from Audi of Alexandria. Had to drive 500 miles the day after getting the car, and found that the car just gets better and better at highway speeds (much of the trip was through 70 mph zones, and “of course” I never exceeded the speed limit. lol!). These cars are made for highway driving, but around town, has great balance of weight, power, handling and ride. Curb appeal is also very high as these are great looking cars! It’s one of those cars you can just admire from every angle with both a classic look, but with modern design.


Favorite Features

Exterior and interior design - the lines, the fit/finish, and overall look is first rate. Balance of power, handling, ride. Service response as described above was outstanding.


Suggested Improvements

Front/rear parking sensors

2010 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6A)


Review

First saw the A6 years ago at an auto show, and I was blown away with the interior, but couldn't afford it. Now I can, and worth the wait! Solid, luxurious, fast, cool..lots of adjectives to use to describe it but really you just have to drive it. Drove a 2011 Infinit M37 sport and 2010 BMW 535i sport the same day. The Infiniti disappointed with the driving experience (too soft and slow power delivery), and BMW was way behind in the gadgets (though the handling and power were great). Audi had all the best features of the competitors and a good price. The Prestige package and 19in wheels really round out the car. I heavily researched this purchase, and am satisfied with the decision.


Favorite Features

MMI works well, especially the ipod interface, 10 gig jukebox and DVD player; classy interior fit and finish; cool mood lighting inside; power that is "right now", and "stick to the road" handling. I previously owned an M-spec BMW, and I think that the feel of this car is a bit softer but very close.


Suggested Improvements

ipod connection should be in the center console. Lots of room taken from glove box by the media players. You have to like "Bose sound" to enjoy the upgraded audio, as it lacks some low end punch, but well balanced sound overall. Fuel econ about 19 mpg mixed street/hwy, hoped for better.

Review

Purchased after driving BMW 535 and 2011 Infiniti M37. The Audi is the best of both worlds. I just would give the BMW the edge for handling and the engine, but its interior does not come close to the quality of the Audi. The Infiniti has upped the ante with their 2011 M37 interior, and I have to say it is better than even Audi's, however the engine and handling where no where near as sorted out as the Germans. Audi combines the best of each. I have the 19" Sport Package, which makes the ride a little stiff, but not uncomfortable. At freeway speeds the car is in its element. The 3G MMI is great - although I am still learning its quirks. Loving it through 1,000 miles!


Favorite Features

Interior quality - doors close with authoritive thud and the noise isolation is excellent. Motor - pulls rapidly without fuss, the quattro keeping the power on the road. MMI - Full featured with hi-res navigation and voice control. Lightyears ahead of the BMW iDrive.


Suggested Improvements

Ride with the sport package could be a little smoother at slow speeds. Steering input at slow speeds too light (although nice and firm at higher speeds).
