2019 Audi A6 TECHNIK
The 2019 Audi A6 occupies the middle better than Joe DiMaggio on a sunny day. The Yankee Clipper and Audi mid-size skipper also have similar levels of public restraint, unfazed by stars among their ranks.
With the A6, Audi treats understatement as a birthright. The new A6 is an evolution of the old mid-sizer for Audi. The new sedan boasts a bigger grille and small flares over its wheels visible in the daylight, brighter headlights and sharper taillights when the sun sets This A6 sedan is equipped from the factory with brighter and safer headlights that can dim for oncoming cars without sacrificing visibility on the road ahead.
Inside, the overhaul of the A6 is more apparent. A trio of high-tech screens is available in both models 12.3-inch digital dash is complemented by a 10.2-inch touchscreen for infotainment and an 8.6-inch touchscreen for vehicle functions, Both trims are flanked by wood trim accents, leather and soft-touch materials on the dash and seats, and a serene and quiet cabin. Every A6 gets leather upholstery and touchscreens inside, with Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility as standard.
The A6 drops last year’s supercharged V-6 for a turbocharged V-6 that makes almost the same power, but adds a dollop of heavy torque that’s available earlier. The A6 sprints up to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds, same as last year, but its turbos spin up just past idle for better use of its thrust. A 48-volt mild-hybrid system is a first for the new A6, although it’s reserved for powering accessories at a stop—not powering the car on electricity alone.
A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic is the only transmission available, and Audi’s latest all-wheel-drive system can declutch the rear wheels for better efficiency while cruising.
With heightened levels of comfort, smooth operation, safety and technology, the A6 is, relatively speaking, a superior ride for the pleasure-seekers among us.
