2017 Audi A6 Buyer's Guide
Why not live in the future?
Take the easy comfort of a Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the satisfying drive of a BMW 5 Series and the kind of warm, modern design sense you might expect to find in the home of a tech-loving architect, and you have a good sense of what the Audi A6 is all about.
As Audi's star continues to rise, and all-wheel drive -- an Audi hallmark -- becomes a more popular selling point, the A6 is an increasingly appealing alternative to its more established competitors. For 2017, the A6 loses the diesel option but gains a new trim level. The Competition sits between the lux Prestige and the performance-biased S6.
The A6 is a joy to drive, as we explain in our 2017 Audi A6 full review: "Despite its midsize designation, the 2017 Audi A6 feels smaller and more nimble than one would expect, nearly mimicking the performance of the Audi A4 in the turns, a feat made possible thanks to the standard quattro all-wheel-drive system."
Build and Price
The 2017 Audi A6 starts above $48,000 and tops out near $81,000 with all the upgrades and amenities. Build and price your own A6 right here at KBB.com to unlock its Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.
S6 and A7 Twists
With a 450-horsepower V8 engine, sportier suspension and tastefully enhanced look, the A6 transforms into the mouthwatering Audi S6. For something even more distinct, the A6 serves as the foundation for the "un-sedan" Audi A7.
More Mid Lux
The 2017 Audi A6 is an appealing luxury sedan, but it's one of many attractive alternatives covered in our Midsize Luxury Sedan Buyer's Guide.
