2011 Audi A6 4.2 Prestige quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


It's hard to believe there is a better car. The V8 is the ticket. Despite reviews from others, I thought the 3.0T was weak -- compared to the 4.2. And unlike the transmission mated to the V6, you can hardly feel it shift in the V8. The 3.0T has to work to accelerate. But if you can't feel the difference in your test drive, then save your money and buy the 3.0T. The 4.2 engine growls and accelerates smoothly. Unlike the 3.0T, you can't feel the vibration of the engine in the steering wheel. The fit and trim is incredible. And the lines are just breath taking. Test drove an E350, and just can't see why people pay the extra money, the A6 is hands down the better vehicle.

Best Features

The DVD-A player -- the surround sound with a DVD- A disk is just awesome. I do't many people know about this feature.

Worst Features

A brake mitigation system and smart cruise control
