2012 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)


Review

I have only had this car about a week and its my 3rd A6 with Premium plus package. I replaced an 06 with a 2012 . While this A6 is quite nice, it does lack the luxury feel that accompanied my last 2006 A6 with the same package. Sound proofing seems a little less and the road noise is certainly more noticeable. I had 18" tires on my last A6 and barely heard them. Now its an issue. Things like keyless entry which came with Premium plus editions has new limitations. Its really just key less start as you have to use the fob to unlock and lock the doors. This was not the case in the 2006 version. Its still early in ownership so maybe I will forget how great the other A6's were

Review

Having owned an '07, '09 and '11 A6s, I fugured that that couldn't be be much change for 2012. Was I ever wrong! This car blows away any of its competition. I purchased the Prestice with Driver Assist and Cold Weather Package. I did not think the other options were warranted. This car is like a smaller version of the A8. I love the new 2012!


Favorite Features

MMI and all the additional features that allow you to dial in the car.


Suggested Improvements

No improvements needed. The car is perfect and is and excellent value!

Review

I just purchased my 2012 A6 Certified used. Drove all day from Southern California to Phoenix, AZ to get it. During the last 10 years I've gone through 7 different cars from BMW to Land Rover.... & by far this is the best car I've ever owned.... I traded my 2011 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI for the Audi. I drove the BMW 535 & Lexus... but when I drove the A6 I didn't want to drive anything else, it was almost like the car picked me.... I own a custom vehicle wrap shop & will be wrapping the A6 in a two tone matte black & matte dark grey. I had the headliner & pillars done in Black Suede...


Favorite Features

Amazing power, it's there when you need it, it's smooth, quite & just perfect.... I had to set the speed alarm to stop me from speeding... doing 80 feels like doing 50.... The Quattro is awesome...taking corners at higher speeds is such a joy


Suggested Improvements

Steering feel is a bid too soft... I tried a set of 19" wheels & it helped quite a bid, so I'll be installing a set of Black TSW 19" wheels

Review

Got the 3.0T prestige with Innovation, cold and 20 inch sport package and B&O sound This car is a beauty both to look and to drive. Test drove the Jaguar XF, BMW 535 xi The Jag drove well and looked great but it dint match the technology available in Audi the other draw back was lack of a 4 wheel drive...the Audi quattro is unreal it gives you that added reassurance of stability. The BMW 535xi just dint feel right to drive not like the old BMW , the AUdi just kills the BMW both in looks and drive quality. this is a fast car with great handling, build quality and technology and to top it good milage getting 27 on freeway and 18 in stop and go


Favorite Features

love the Adaptive cruise control, HUD, sport mode with dynamic transmission to carve out corners and the wifi. B&O sound is just spectacular


Suggested Improvements

they could provide each menu function to be displayed on HUD currently only speed, navigation and Adaptive cruise control settings show up.

Review

Just purchashed the new A6 and absolutely love it. The looks, the comments this car is a stud! It drives in all modes, you pick! How awesome can that be! This car is so intuitive, it is before its time! I test drove all of the competition BMW, Mercedes-Benz, even the new Lexus and there is no comparison.


Favorite Features

MMI Interface, Sport Suspension, Audi side assist very cool. What is not to like..
