Little has been accomplished in terms of renovation for the 2016 Audi A6. This draw raised eyebrows for some but in reality, the bits from the 2015 model are worth retaining. Smooth powertrains, smart and classy styling, comfortable confines for the passengers, responsive handling and intuitive interfaces are the very things that contribute to Audi A6’s reign on the top.
There are small renovations, however, and this starts with the installment of the trending LED lights for the headlights and tail lights. The headlights themselves were handsomely enhanced by the airline graphics and the tail lights are quite the looker, too.
Let’s start off with the best-seller 3.0L V6 that can summon a whopping 333 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft of torque. It can sprint from 0-60 mph in mere 4.6 seconds without too much of a fuss and driving is smoothly assisted by the 8-speed automatic transmission and AWD drivetrain. As we know, Quattro moniker is known for their AWD, making it one of the most sought-after under the brand.
A6 3.0T Quattro doesn’t even need to honk for it to be noticed. The brand endowed classy styling for this Quattro model meant to please the eyes of the meticulous posh crowd. The20-inch Black Optic wheels surely gives a bonus for the overall looks but do not compromise the performance.
No wonder that even the likes of Cadillac CTS, Mercedes Benz E-class and Jaguar XF had a hard time surpassing A6. It’s a certified power-packed handsome automobile to steal the hearts of a great crowd.
