KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 7/9/2013


Audi has long been considered one of the world's great luxury car names, but up until recently, the company seemed content not making waves when it came to rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Those days are gone as Audi is now aggressively gunning for BMW and MB's customer base. Audi's strategy is clearly evident in the 2014 A6, a sedan that masterfully blends performance and luxury into a single, well-heeled machine admired as much for its efficiency as its opulence. A choice of turbocharged and supercharged gasoline engines and a new TDI clean diesel model help Audi further expand its reach, as does the 420-horsepower high-performance S6.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you love the performance feel of the BMW 5 Series, but not the firm ride and somewhat sterile interior, you'll likely be drawn to the 2014 Audi A6. Cutting-edge audio and electronics along with quattro all-wheel drive (AWD) make the A6 nearly irresistible, as does its impressive fuel economy.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Although the S6 certainly can run with the best BMW has to offer, the base A6 can't make the same claim. Pulled by its front wheels and equipped with a continuously-variable automatic transmission (CVT), the A6 is no match for the rear-drive 5 Series, which also features an 8-speed automatic.

What's New for 2014

Horsepower on the 2.0T increases to 220, and a new TDI clean-diesel engine is added to the lineup. The A6 2.0T gains standard heated front seats, while the Prestige trim gains Audi Side Assist blind-spot monitoring. A number of new exterior trim and wheel upgrade packages are also offered.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Audi's A6 for 2014 is designed to be soft over harsh city streets, yet adeptly athletic when the road unwinds. A nice compromise between the performance-oriented 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the A6 is designed to please the vast majority of owners who want a sophisticated driving experience but not at the expense of comfort or quiet. Although we wish the electric power steering delivered better feedback, it's not a deal breaker. Audi's supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine is marvelously responsive and the 8-speed automatic never feels as if it's shortchanging the engine's abilities. Audi's quattro AWD is biased towards the rear wheels but will favor all four equally when the pavement becomes slick enough to merit engagement. The new TDI diesel model offers impressive acceleration, thanks in part to its generous torque, and returns an even more impressive 38 mpg on the highway. The sport-oriented S6 changes the equilibrium, with its lusty 420-horsepower turbo V8 and firmer suspension.

Favorite Features

3.0-LITER TDI CLEAN DIESEL ENGINE
With 240 horsepower, 428 lb-ft of torque and a 0-60 time of just 5.5 seconds, the Audi A6 TDI for 2014 delivers V8-like performance while returning an estimated 24 mpg city and 38 mpg highway.

STOP & GO CRUISE CONTROL
Using video cameras plus short- and long-distance radar sensors, the 2014 Audi A6 will gas and brake itself along in stop-and-go traffic. All you have to do is stay awake and steer.
