The occasion to drive an Audi A6 is an attention grabber for us because we’ve always been fond of Audi’s mid-size sedan. With its distinctive looks, comfortable interior and generous dose of gee-whiz tech appointments, the A6 has always had a lot to like.
Redesigned for the 2013 model year, while the revised A6 followed the styling traditions established by its forebears quite competently, there is also a new member in its family unit.
Now that Audi has the A7 in the lineup, it can afford to skew the A6 a bit more toward the luxury end of the spectrum, allowing its new A7 sibling to lionize performance. As a result, this new A6, while still a paragon of style, luxury, technology, and engaging performance, is a bit softer in the suspenders than the 2011 car it replaced.
But no less desirable.
