Overview Information

An all-new A6 features a longer wheelbase for some badly needed interior room. Two models are offered initially. One features a 244hp V6 and the other features a 311hp version of the V8 from the S4. A six-speed Tiptronic transmission and quattro all wheel drive are standard. On the interior, you will find that the MMI system from Audi's flagship A8 appears as standard equipment. The exterior styling features a familiar roofline with a more substantial looking lower-body. The new Audi family grille will ensure that you can spot a new A6 at great distances.

What Changed:

All-new A6 features a longer wheelbase for increased interior dimensions. Initially, two models are offered: the A6 3.2 quattro powered by a 244hp V6, and the A6 4.2 which is powered by a 311 hp version of the S4's 4.2-liter V8. New exterior styling features the new-look Audi grille. Notable interior features include the MMI system introduced on the A8 and a new steering wheel design.
