Now, the 2015 Audi A6 is a luxury large car that receives no major changes this year. The 2015 Audi A6 is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 220 horsepower. Front-wheel drive and an automatic transmission (CVT) are standard. An eight-speed automatic transmission is optional. The 2015 A6 TDI comes with a 240-horsepower turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6 engine, while the A6 3.0T’s supercharged 3.0-liter V6 produces 310 horsepower. Both the TDI and 3.0T are available exclusively with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The high-performance S6 model is powered by a 420-horsepower 4.0-liter V8 engine and comes standard with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic (automated manual) transmission. With the four-cylinder engine and a CVT, the 2015 Audi A6 returns an EPA-estimated 25/33 mpg city/highway. TDI models get 24/38 mpg.

Luxury sedan shoppers have come to expect quite a bit from automakers, and not every model is up to the task. But the 2015 Audi A6 is good enough to satisfy almost anyone’s expectations. A strong performer in every category, the A6 spoils drivers and passengers alike and looks good doing it. If you’re fortunate enough to be shopping in this all-star segment, the A6 belongs at the top of your test-drive agenda.

Now, the 2015 Audi A6 is one of the top examples in the mid-size luxury segment, offering plenty of sport and style while also balancing those considerations with healthy doses of comfort, practicality, and features. Doing battle with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5-Series, and Cadillac CTS, among others, the Audi A6 is a capable, attractive sedan even among a crowd of capable, attractive alternatives.

The A6 and performance-oriented S6 sedans are handsome vehicles, and we’ve commended Audi on its contoured sheetmetal and sleek designs in the past. However, even the A6 sits in the shadows of its mechanically similar, far less predictable A7 hatchback sibling. That car has been a top pick amongst our editors, while the A6 has received received more conventional scores with its more conventional design. The good news here is that the interiors are identical in both cars, and passengers will enjoy a mix of rich finishes, comfortable seating, and a long list of feature technologies.

2015 Audi A6 Interior

The 2015 Audi A6 and S6 are very well-equipped at the base level, as luxury sedans. But it’s the options for the lineup that will really impress passengers. From Google Earth maps, to in-car wireless Internet access, to an innovative system that lets you trace out letters with your finger, this lineup goes above and beyond with tech options. The A6 also offers all the active-safety features you’ll find on its luxury peers from Mercedes-Benz and BMW including front and rear parking sensors, a top-view camera, blind-spot monitors, a night-vision system, and a head-up display.

The styling inside, though, remains singular. Audi succeeds in subduing the effect of many lines and textures better than any car company. The A6’s overarching shapes are pleasant, and the concave door trim panels and boatlike dash line are handsome in a vintage way (just like they are on the Jaguar XJ and the Nissan Maxima). And the center-stack area is canted very slightly toward the driver, though not at all in a way that limits space.

A6 Prestige models come at the top of the model line. And what’s confusing is that you can add a $6,550 Prestige Package to them, which adds a lot of good stuff like distinct 18-inch wheels; four-zone climate control; adaptive headlights; LED interior lighting; a Bose speaker package; ventilated front seats; a power-adjustable steering column; cornering lights; and S-line cosmetic trim, including its own grille and bumpers. S6 models are only offered in Prestige trim.

On the base A6, there’s a standard sunroof; power front seats; cruise control; leather upholstery; 17-inch wheels; tri-zone automatic climate control; power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt/telescoping steering; pushbutton start; AM/FM/XM/CD audio with a 6.5-inch LCD screen; and LED taillamps. Heated front seats are now standard, as of last year.

All that said, the A6 interior has dozens of pieces, panel joints, air vents, and metallic trim, which can add up to a busy look in some combinations, although a clear control layout helps with that. The A6’s instrument panel is slim and rather low, which means the optional navigation system’s LCD screen must flip incongruously out of the dash. And Audi’s signature red lighting doesn’t always work with some of the more exotic interior treatments, like its layered-oak look.

The 2015 Audi A6 seats five and comes standard with leather upholstery, eight-way power-adjustable heated front seats, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, tri-zone automatic climate control, a 10-speaker audio system, Bluetooth phone connectivity, satellite radio and a 5-inch display screen. Options include heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, four-zone automatic climate control, a 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, Bluetooth audio connectivity, HD Radio, a voice-activated navigation system, a 7-inch color display screen and Audi Connect, which provides Wi-Fi for up to eight mobile devices and allows the navigation system to access and display Google Earth imagery rather than basic maps. Adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot warning and a collision mitigation system with automatic braking are also available. The 2015 Audi A6 starts at $44,800 and the S6 is priced at $75,500.

The 2015 Audi A6 is a midsize luxury sedan essentially available in six trim levels 2.0T Premium, 2.0T Premium Plus, 3.0T Premium Plus, 3.0T Prestige, TDI Premium Plus and TDI Prestige. The 2.0T, 3.0T and TDI designations denote the engine fitted (a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6, respectively). The high-performance S6 variant is reviewed separately.

Standard equipment for the 2.0T Premium includes 18-inch wheels, Audi Drive Select (providing adjustable modes for steering, gas pedal and transmission response), automatic xenon headlights, LED running lights and taillights, automatic wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, a sunroof, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated eight-way power front seats (includes four-way lumbar adjustments), driver memory settings, leather upholstery, Bluetooth phone connectivity, Audi’s MMI electronics interface, a 6.5-inch display screen and a 10-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio and an iPod interface. Also standard is Audi’s Pre-Sense Basic safety system.

The other flavors of the A6 are also strikingly fast performers that don’t sacrifice that much efficiency. The mid-line option is a gasoline-powered 3.0-liter V-6, with supercharging and direct injection. By the numbers, this V-6 blasts out 310 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, all harnessed to the eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive with a rear torque bias of 40:60. Audi says it’s good for 0-60 mph times of 5.4 seconds, and the same governed top speed of 130 mph. It’s slightly more refined in feel than the TDI, but by so little it’s a difficult justification.

The mostly passion-free standard Audi A6 pairs a continuously variable transmission with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 220 horsepower. It’s a combo rendered more sedate by the A6’s size and weight–even more so with the optional all-wheel drive, which at least adopts an eight-speed automatic instead of the CVT. It’s not slow, with 0-60 mph times in the 7.5-second range, but it’s a less convincing example of luxury in context here, especially with the CVT, which takes away some of what we love so much about the turbo four.

Entry-level Audi A6 models are powered by Volkswagen Group’s ubiquitous 2.0-liter direct-injected turbo four, which makes 220 horsepower (up nine ponies for the latest model year) and 258 lb-ft of torque in this application. The engine sends power to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission and returns fuel economy figures of 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

For an extra cost, the four-cylinder can be spec’d with Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. When paired with Quattro, the four uses an eight-speed automatic gearbox and returns 20/30 mpg.

The up-market motor is 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that puts out 310 horsepower and a healthy 325 lb-ft of twist. It comes only with Quattro and the eight-speed automatic and carries a 18/27 mpg.

Higher up on the performance scale are the supercharged six and turbocharged eights. The 310-horsepower supercharged V-6 that’s offered in the A6 is paired with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission for a 0-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds. It’s a flexible, fairly muted powerplant but it’s easily outstripped by the 420-horsepower turbocharged V-8 engine found in the S6. The S6’s seven-speed S tronic gearbox and performance upgrades ensure excitement is just a tap-shift away and that 60 mph is just 4.5 seconds away.

With either the supercharged or the TDI powertrain, the A6 is a joy to drive. It jumps off the line, tracks cleanly and without torque steer. The eight-speed automatic is a perfect fit, clipping off upshifts and downshifts with just an occasional part-throttle moment of confusion. And the transmission seems always fully prepared to make your choices with the steering-wheel paddle shifters just as seamless.

All A6 and S6 models get Audi Drive Select, a sometimes-frustrating system that adjusts the feel and response of the transmission, throttle and steering to Comfort, Auto, Sport and individually tailored specs. We’ve found issue with the execution of Sport steering mode, which feels too heavy, and Auto can deliver too much weight in high-speed sweepers. The A6 handles well, and even though its all-wheel-drive system is biased to the rear it still tends toward understeer. With impressively strong brakes and Sport settings, it’s nevertheless enjoyable in tight mountain curves.
