Comfortable, spacious and well-equipped, the 2021 Audi A6 checks the important squares of a mid-size luxury car . Its cabin is lined with high-quality materials and its fit and finishes are among the best the premium car market has to offer. The A6 also attracts tech-savvy buyers with its plethora of displays, cameras, driver assistance features and convenience elements scattered throughout the interior. What’s missing here are the crisp, slack handling dynamics that shine brightly in the smaller A4 sedan and its two-door A5 siblings.

Buyers will choose either a turbocharged four-cylinder engine ( these models are denoted by the “45” badge ) and a turbocharged V-6 (called a “55”); Both engines receive a boost from the hybrid system and come standard with all-wheel drive. The A6 is a stylish – if somewhat bland – four-door mid-size design that easily hooks up with competitors like the BMW 5-series and Mercedes-Benz E-class, but is better suited for commuting than for handling twisty back roads.

However, Audi has given the A6 updates that are similar to other 2021 Audis. The Base Premium now comes with 19-inch wheels, keyless entry, and an integrated toll-way drive unit; The comfort package available for this model now includes a 360-degree camera system and an indoor navigation system with a 10.1-inch infotainment screen. Mid-range Premium Plus models get adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist as standard, and the high-spec Prestige adds standard rear window awnings. The new Black Optics Sport appearance package joins the list of options and adds black exterior accents, unique 20-inch wheels and sport suspension.

We recommend the Premium Plus 55 mid-range trim level with the standard turbocharged V-6. Besides the smooth, powerful engine, this model includes plenty of features that luxury buyers will find alluring, such as a digital display, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, a larger 10.1-inch touch screen for infotainment and a 360-degree external camera. On top of that, we’re suggesting the Executive Package, which includes an electric boot lid, multi-colored ambient interior lighting, four-zone automatic climate control, heated rear seats, and ventilated front seats.

Engine, transmission and performance Audi A6

Both A6 engines — a 248-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 335-hp 3.0-liter turbocharged — are more than enough to move this mid-size sedan around town. Both engines use hybrid technology with a 12 or 48 volt AC starter/generator that powers the engine shutdown system and other auxiliary equipment. A seven-speed automatic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive are standard. The V-6 provides plenty of thrust for integration and highway passing. On our test track, it charged from zero to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds. Despite such a quick result, it is not enough to outperform its main competitors,

BMW 540i xDrive and Mercedes-Benz E450 4Matic. The 540i managed a 4.5-second run, while Benz did its job in 4.6. Despite its impressive cornering ability and steady ride, the A6 performs better as a luxury sedan than a sports sedan. We enjoyed its well-balanced handling and precise steering but never quite felt connected when attacking the twisty sections of the road.

That means the A6 has earned decent fuel economy ratings from the Environmental Protection Agency, and choosing a V-6 versus a turbocharged four-cylinder isn’t a compromise in the efficiency department. The A6’s four-cylinder engine earned a 32-mpg highway rating, three times more than the V-6’s. However, our V-6-powered test vehicle managed 32 mpg during our 200-mile highway fuel economy test. This score puts it ahead of the Benz (30 mpg) and BMW (31 mpg) but behind the more efficient Lexus ES350, which managed 39 mpg in the same test.

Interior, comfort and charging Audi A6

The interior of the A6 is stylish, modern and well made with high quality materials. Soft leather adorns the seats and armrests, rich-looking wood and nickel-plated metal trim are tastefully placed on the instrument panel and doors, and the majority of the A6’s secondary controls – climate, driving mode, etc. . A similar system is used in the A8 luxury sedans and Q8 crossovers, and despite our usual sense of grabbing the touchscreen controls,

However, it works well and provides satisfactory tactile feedback. A large trunk and easy fold back seats make the A6 great for towing cargo. We stuff six carry-on bags in the trunk, which connects both the E450 and 540i. Audi offered much more room than either of these two. With the rear seats folded, it was able to accommodate 20 cases; Benz kept 18 and a BMW 16.

Information, entertainment and communication

But the familiar Audi MMI infotainment interface gets a major makeover in this iteration of the A6. It no longer uses the center console’s click wheel controller but offers reconfigurable menus so users can customize the home screen layout to suit their tastes. An 8.8-inch screen, navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and on-board Wi-Fi are all standard,

But the Audi virtual digital display and the larger 10.1-inch infotainment display are optional. A 10-speaker audio system is standard, but we recommend the 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen setup that comes standard on the Premium Plus and Prestige models.

Safety and driver assistance features

The A6 has received five stars for safety crash tests from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also reported strong results for the new A6 in 2019 and named it a Top Safety Pick+ for 2019 and 2020. Audi also offers quite a few standard and optional driver assistance features, including a traffic-monitoring system to provide You have to get out of the car and get into the path of a moving vehicle. Key safety features include:

 Standard automatic emergency braking system

 Standard Lane Departure Warning

 Available adaptive cruise control

Warranty and maintenance coverage

Audi offers an average standard warranty that, in comparison with other premium brands, seems very basic. Jaguar offers more value here, with longer warranties and five years of free scheduled maintenance.

 The limited warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles

 Powertrain warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles

 Free scheduled maintenance is covered for 1 year or 10,000 miles
