A full list of available features and filters for the new 2018 Audi A6 inventory include but are not limited to: Edmunds Special Offers: Gas Card, Purchase Offers, Lease Offers, Used Offers. Model Type: Sedan, Wagon, Diesel.
Even though it hasn't had a major update in six years, the 2018 Audi A6 remains near the top of its hotly contested class with a commendable blend of style, comfort and performance. Add in styling that is still attractive despite the model's age, a beautifully crafted cabin and a competitive base price, and you'd be wise to check it out alongside newer and fresher competitors.
After a minor update a few years ago, and with a complete redesign coming likely in a year, the A6 has only received a few minor changes for 2018. These include more standard power for the 3.0T V6 engine and a handful of previously optional standard feature (specifically Bluetooth audio, a proper USB port, navigation and the upgrade MMI interface).
The A6's roomy interior surrounds occupants with a tasteful mix of quality leather, wood accents and metal trim. In addition to high-end materials, it boasts comfortable, supportive seats and a wide array of useful features, including an almost overwhelming complement of standard and available technology.
The powerplant for the base A6 is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The standard transmission for the front-wheel-drive model is a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic, while the all-wheel-drive Quattro version comes with an eight-speed automatic. Move up to the A6 3.0 and you get a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that generates 340 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. Quattro AWD and the eight-speed are standard with that engine.
Although the A6 is not small or light, it can hold its own against major competitors in the handling department. Even the standard setup provides enough cornering prowess to satisfy most drivers. But those looking for even more performance can choose a 3.0T model, larger wheels and beefier suspension components. For the drivers who want a less equipped car but would like some suspension upgrades, a sport suspension and wheel package are available on lower trim models.
The base 2.0T Premium trim level already comes equipped well enough to rival pretty much anything in its class. The 2.0T Premium Plus model adds a number of comfort, convenience and audio features, and the 3.0T Premium Plus and 3.0T Prestige tack on those niceties, as well as the V6 engine. Whichever 2018 Audi A6 best meets your needs, let Edmunds help you find the perfect one for you.
