We wanted the Prestige but had to settle for Premuim Plus with Executive package. Not many available was my only complaint. I have owned Mercedes and Jag and my wife and I shopped for a year. We test drove the BMW 5 the new Mercedes E. We liked both but when we drove the A6 we just looked at each other and smiled. When you combine smoothness ,power,style ,quality of build and comfort none of the others gave us the same feel. We really were leaning towards another SUV until we drove the A6. I do recommend the big engine because Wow so smooth. The executive package gives you a good value and brings it very close to the Prestige build. The 2021 now includes adaptive cruise as standard on the premium plus. For me with my other luxury cars you have to buy as an option. I will never purchase vehicle without it. And Audi has it perfected compared to Mercedes and BMW. I was concerned about gas but we are getting more than published. We are getting 30 on highway cruising at 75 in cold weather.

Top of the line tech

I had a 2019 Lexus GS 350 F Sport and wanted something more modern. After doing a lot of research I decided to purchase a Audi A6 Prestige. There are a ton of features on this car including best in class interior and more screens than you could ever want. The car exudes luxury on the inside and out. Love all the technology you get with the prestige package. I do have some gripes especially with the me Audi app. You can only lock and unlock doors. There is no feature to remote start car when it is cold or hot outside. Another big miss is not having notifications on app if you leave doors unlocked. Had issues with initial app set up and called Audi 3 times. All 3 times they said they could not hear me and hung up. Having a Lexus in the past I can say service was much better with Lexus. So overall car is great with mind blowing tech but Audi needs to work on their service. Would I buy again? Time will tell.

Okay but the dual touchscreens are a step backward

The biggest positives are that the car is very quiet and rides well with comfortable front seats as expected in a luxury car. It is a smooth and relaxing drive. The styling is also classy. I think Audi really missed in moving to dual touchscreens and moving things like heated seat controls and temperature controls to the screens. Compared to my A5 or previous Audis, the interior is a step backwards. I say that because the dual touchscreen is inferior to the button and dial controls Audi used to use in both feel and function. The touchscreens get unsightly quickly with all the finger prints and the feeling of the haptic feedback on the touchscreens pales in comparison to the satisfying clicks of actual buttons and knobs. You also have to take your eyes off the road to do simple things like adjust temperature or put on a heated seat that you easily could do by feel with a temperature knob or hard button. I think Audi also uses too much gloss black and shiny silver trim in high touch places. Combine that with the dual touchscreens and the car looks dirty really easily. The wood trim is really nice as is the stitching though there is a surprising amount of hard plastic. For instance on the seatback. Trunk space is fine. It isn’t that tall of a trunk but is deep and well-shaped. Cubic foot wise it is smaller than some competitors but real world it is fine. I do really like the 360 parking cameras and the Audi virtual cockpit is really good. Real leg room is good in the outboard positions but the hump is big and the middle seat isn’t great because of that. You really wouldn’t want to try to cram three adults back there because of that. Something like a Lexus ES (or even an Accord!) has a more usable back seat for three. The powertrain is a mixed bag. Turbo lag isn’t too bad (though noticeable sometimes) and the midrange torque is good. The transmission is top notch. In cruising the engine is quiet but rev it and the four sounds like it could be out of a Corolla or Jetta. Not very luxurious or smooth sounding. Our 2022 Acura MDX cost about the same amount and the 6 in it feels and sounds much nicer. Same with previous cars with 6 cylinder engines. The handling of the car is solid though it really isn’t a car that encourages you to want to tear around corners. Frankly either our 2018 A5 or the MDX feels more fun and eager and encourages more throwing them into corners. The A6 can do that but clearly is a car best for cruising. Maybe the 6 would really change the feel.

Nice to drive but unreliable

Purchased car 5 months ago and have had it in the shop 3 times. Twice for a known infotainment problem, it keeps deleting favorite destinations including home. It is currently in the shop after it stopped running and had to be towed about 2 weeks ago. Still waiting for a fuel level sensor that they believe will fix the problem. I heard my dealer may have a couple others with the same problem. What next and can we rely on this car in the future?
