A more powerful 3.2-liter V6 engine is added, as are new Sport Packages that include 18-inch wheels with all-season tires or 19-inchers with performance tires, a sport steering wheel and a lowered sport suspension. Daytime running lights are made standard on halogen lamp-equipped cars, while the Cold Weather Package gains a heated steering wheel with shift paddles.
A new, 300-horsepower supercharged 3.0-liter gasoline injection engine is added to the lineup, as is a revised quattro all-wheel drive system with a 40/60 rear bias. Also new are optional LED driving lights, push button start/stop ignition, revised front and rear fascia and improvements to the car's steering and suspension settings.
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.
