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


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


Best 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


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

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

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


Review

I've had my Audi A6 for 3 months now and there are no real disappointments. I love the rock solid feel of the car. The acceleration is impressive for such a large car. While the technology is impressive, Audi has a little ways to go with the AudiConnect feed - the Online services such as news, sports, etc. are too limited. I love the WiFi connectivity. The next generation should add much more content. The interior is extremely spacious and comfortable.


Best Features

Adaptive cruise control and brown nougat interior leather.


Worst Features

AudiConnect content.

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


Review

As many drivers of mid-sized luxury sport sedans, I too considered the usual suspects: 535Xi, 3-class, Lex-GS, and a few others. This Audi combines style with power and great handling. It's for driving and after checking the competition, this car rose above them and "picked me". My best car decision!


Best Features

If you like, use and find the technology key to your motoring enjoyment, then this is the ride for you. The MMI interface is cutting edge, functional and easy to use once you become familiar with the set up.

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


Review

I have owned Audi's in years past, and my 2012 A6 (Prestige 3.0 Supercharged V6) shows how intensely the brand intends to play against global competitors. The car has a very modern exterior view, embodied most in the LED headlights and aggressive front. The interior has a tight, modern aesthetic that feels very comfortable to occupy. I deleted sport options on my ordered vehicle, and the ride on the 18" wheels is palatial on rougher New England roads while still being tight and making a fairly heavy car feel very nimble and spry. Excellent MPG for the effortless, continuous power available. Whisper quiet at 85MPH. BOSE stereo is clean but could use more punch. Flawless snow performance.


Best Features

Adaptive Cruise Control - works well at following variable speed traffic, including stop/go traffic. Works best in super heavy or light highway traffic. Braking Guard - Stops the car to avoid collision when you fail to do so. It's the future. Side Assist - Very helpful in day-to-day use. The vehicle clearly indicates when it's safe to change lanes. LED Headlights - well worth the upcharge, the LED's light up green highway signs and road stripes like an arcade game at night. They are so brilliant it's surprising that they passed regulatory review. Used to "signal" someone slow on the highway, they are so bright as to almost light up the lower cloud layer and cannot be ignored. Amazing.


Worst Features

Side Assist should have an auditory warning option when you signal to change lanes and the vehicle knows there is a car in the blind spot. Voice commands need to be more universal. For example, the car will not recognize the "bluetooth" command if you are trying to turn on iPhone audio streaming when the map is up. That command would only work when the primary display shows radio/audio controls. Likewise, you cannot say "Navigate to home" when the radio is on, you have to switch to the map view first. The key fob is simply too large/heavy, as has been the case for years now. Ventilated seats should be connected to the A/C system to actually chill the seat instead of just venting it.
