The Prestige Audi A6 is a Car that's a Pleasure to Own
The exterior of the latest Audi A6 is conservatively bold and commanding with its upgraded headlights, LED taillights, front bumper, and grille, as well as keyless entry and ignition. If you select the new Competition Package, available on the Prestige and Premium Plus trims, you have a more aggressive tone with black exterior mirror housing; red brake calipers and 20-inch five-double-spoke Matte Titanium wheels with summer tires.
The standard upgrading to the base Premium model includes parking sensors and rear-view camera, a sunroof, tri-zone climate control and leather interior. As well, the front seats are heated and the folding rear seats come with 60/40 split. The traction is excellent with the Audi Quattro all-wheel system and the three powertrains, turbocharged four-cylinder, supercharged V-6 or the twin-turbo in the S6.
The interior of the A6 is elegant, comfortable, and appealing with the leather upholstery and intricate trimming. Included in the 2018 Audi A6 standard are Audi's MMI infotainment and navigation system that comes complete with Google Maps and Audi's Smartphone interface that's CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. The digital dashboard is fully configurable, and a screen set between the gauges comes with the ability to relay similar content, including maps. Taller occupants will sit comfortably on the rear seats as there is sufficient height as well as excellent outward visibility. The well-sized trunk is more than fourteen cubic feet.
Premium Plus Added Standard Features
The Premium Plus trims of the 2018 Audi A6 have added blind-spot monitoring, four-zone climate control, a Bose audio system, a power-adjustable steering column, LED headlights, and power-folding side mirrors. The top-trim A6 Prestige model includes a standard V6 engine, a trunk that is power operated, head-up display, rear-window sunshades, as well as a top-view camera. There is optional equipment available that includes driver-assist and safety features such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and automatic emergency braking.
The Competition Package includes sport suspension and sport rear differential for improved handling. The high-performance Audi S6 comes included with a V8 engine, upgraded brakes, adaptive air suspension as well as twelve-way adjustable front seats.
Under the Hood

The base 2018 A6 models are front-wheel-drive and use a seven-speed S-Tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission.
