2014 Audi A6 Summary

Changes for the 2014 Audi A6:

Audi bumps the 2014 A6 model’s standard turbocharged, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine to 220 horsepower this year, and adds heated front seats as standard equipment for all models. The bigger news, however, is the addition of a new 2014 Audi A6 TDI model to the lineup, which is equipped with a turbocharged, clean-diesel V-6 engine and gets an EPA-rated 38 mpg on the highway.

Also new for the 2014 A6, the Driver Assistance Package adds a Topview Camera to its list of contents, and a new Black Optic Package debuts featuring gloss black exterior trim, a set of 20-inch, 5-arm, rotor-design wheels in Titanium finish, and summer performance tires.

Model Lineup:

The 2014 Audi A6 is available in Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trim levels, depending on the engine that is installed under the hood.

Engines and Transmissions:

The 2014 Audi A6 is equipped with a standard turbocharged, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine generating 220 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft of torque. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is standard with front-wheel drive, and accelerates the car to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds. Versions equipped with Quattro all-wheel-drive are equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Quattro features a 40/60 front-to-rear power split under normal driving conditions, giving the A6 a rear-drive bias.

A supercharged, 3.0-liter V6 is available, and it makes 310 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque. Quattro and an 8-speed automatic transmission are standard equipment, and this version of the A6 accelerates to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds.

New for 2014, the Audi A6 TDI features a turbocharged, 3.0-liter, clean-diesel V-6 engine producing 240 horsepower and 428 lb.-ft. of torque. Quattro and an 8-speed automatic are standard, and Audi says this model accelerates to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.

Fuel Economy Ratings:

When equipped with the standard turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the A6 returns 28 mpg in combined driving with front-wheel drive, and 23 mpg with Quattro. Upgrading to the supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 doesn’t produce a fuel economy penalty, with this model getting 22 mpg. The new 2014 A6 TDI is the fuel-economy champ at 29 mpg in combined driving.

Safety Ratings:

As this summary is written, only the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has performed crash tests on the A6. The car receives the top rating of “Good” in all but the small overlap frontal-impact test, for which it has not been assessed.

Technology Highlights:

Audi Side Assist, a blind spot detection system, is optional for Premium and Premium Plus models, and standard for the Prestige model. A Driver Assistance Package is available for the A6 Premium Plus, adding Audi Active Lane Assist, Audi Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, a Top and Corner View Camera system, and Audi Pre-Sense Plus technology.

An optional Innovation Package is reserved for the A6 Prestige, equipping the car with a Night Vision Assistant with Pedestrian Detection and a Head-Up Display. Prestige models are also exclusively offered with LED headlights and a Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System.
