The occasion of a new 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.
While this new A6 follows the traditions established by its forebears quite competently, there is 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. What this means for the next Audi S6 is still up in the air. But one thing is certain; this new A6 is a softer in the suspenders than the car it replaces.
