The 2020 Audi A6 is stylish, charismatic, luxurious and out there to prove a point. Taking on arch rivals like the BMW 5 series and the Mercedes-Benz E class, the A6 has upped its game in so many areas that not only the loyal german car buyers, but others also will be licking their lips.
While over the years Audi A6 has been known for its balance between comfort and sport, the 2020 model offers a lot more comfort with only a hint of sport. Longer than its previous model and featuring considerable interior upgrades, the facelift makes this car ready for longer comfortable drives.
There is enough power in the four cylinder engine, thanks to the turbo that kicks in a 1,200 rpm. So you get optimum performance in every gear. The suspension has been modified to become steadier and balanced even while turning the car at high speeds. I tried quite a few things to get the feel of the road but wasn’t successful.
Among the different drive modes in the Audi A6, the only thing of note is the “Dynamic” mode (sport mode). It makes the drive stiffer and the otherwise featherlight steering wheel gets hard and responsive. Don’t get me wrong, the Audi A6 still drives fast and accelerates quick but it is no longer a car for the spirited driver.
Once a sports sedan but today a luxury mid-size sedan, the Audi A6 has had to bow down to the increasing demand in the luxury car segment. Which could be great for the brand specially since smaller engines and good fuel economy has gained popularity among millennials.
Fuel economy is excellent, consuming only 6.1 liters every 100km.
Engine: 2.0 Liter – 45 TFSI
Horsepower: 245 Bhp
Torque: 353 Nm
Drive System: Front Wheel Drive
Transmission: 7 Speed Automatic
Seating Capacity: 5
2020 Audi A6 is longer than its previous models and according to make, a completely different shape.
The main stay is the forward sloping hood and the iconic Audi rings placed beautifully on a narrow modern grille with black accents around it and the windows.
The best features of the 2020 Audi A6 lie inside its cabin, a spacious and luxurious place with plenty of high quality materials. Dashboard is made of fine quality hardened rubber; not entirely smooth but adds a sporty character to the interior.
You see past the leather-wrapped multi function steering wheel and a beautiful Audi’s Virtual Cockpit plus digital gauge display meets your eye. The display is crisp and changes information based on the drive mode.
Center piece of the interior is a classy 10.1-inch infotainment display that creates an amazing experience when paired with the 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.
The front seats are ventilated, get a 4-way lumbar support and decent sized arm-rest in the middle. There is ample head and leg room in the front as well as the rear seating. A slight concern would be the sloping roof-line that might make rear head room for taller passengers a bit tight. You can easily seat three people in the back once you fold the arm rest away.
In addition to bluetooth connectivity, the A6 has a digital audio broadcasting system as well.
A6 offers panoramic sunroof, heat-insulating glass, four-zone automatic climate control and adjustable interior ambient lighting that can project up to 60 different colors. The rear window gets an electric sunshade while the rear door windows have the manual sunshades.
Other features include standard adaptive cruise control, head up display, traffic-sign recognition, lane-keeping assist, intersection assist.
The luggage space in the Audi A6 is unbelievable large. You can easily fit in two large suitcases, a small carry-on and still have room for smaller cargo.
