model highlights

The Audi A6 enters 2020 with two engine options. A6 45 TFSI models are powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine aided by a turbocharger making 248 horsepower. A6 55 TFSI models get a 3.0L V6 fed by a turbocharger making a total of 335 horsepower. Both engines are mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission sending power to all four wheels. Dual-clutch transmissions tend to be capable of incredibly fast shift times while sending power to the wheels more efficiently than a traditional automatic, helping the A6 save fuel, while providing sharp shifts when the driver is looking for extra performance.

For those wanting more performance and power, the new for 2020 S6 is powered by a 2.9L turbocharged V6 making 444 horsepower mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Like all versions of the mid-sized Audi, power is sent to all four wheels.

On the other hand, for those wanting something a bit more utilitarian, the Allroad returns to the A6 lineup for 2020 and is powered by the same 3.0L V6. The Allroad offers about two more inches of ground clearance over the standard A6 while also looking far more rugged thanks to its matte wheel arches.

Audi has concentrated heavily on technology in recent years and one look at the interior of the 2020 Audi A6 proves this effort has paid off. Audi's optional second-generation virtual cockpit replaces the driver's instrument panel with a large 12.3-inch display that allows driver to view the navigation system simply by looking down at their instruments. It sounds simple, but the virtual cockpit vastly improves the driving experience by providing all the information driver's need in one place.

Driver assistance functions available on the A6 are extensive as well and include an adaptive cruise control system that will keep up with traffic in speeds ranging from stopped, all the way up to 95 mph. A top view camera system allows for 360 degree viewing of the area around the A6 making parking dings a thing of the past, while an available intersection assist system monitors cross traffic and should prevent drivers from pulling out into traffic in situations with low visibility.

The 2020 Audi A6 is available in three distinct trims, Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige, with an S-line package option available as well. All the A6 variations come with standard safety features such as front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, Audi pre sense forward collision mitigation, pedestrian detection and a rear view camera.

model news

The Audi A6 was completely redesigned for the 2019 model year and was available with just one engine choice. For 2020 Audi have expanded the lineup to include Allroad and S6 models broadening the lineup, while injecting a huge dose of performance into it via the S6. In addition, a new option package is available on the standard A6 while a few new features such as Audi's Virtual Cockpit Plus come standard on the Premium Plus trim.

value writeup

The Audi A6 is a mid-sized luxury sedan sitting above both the Audi A3 and the Audi A4 in Audi's lineup. Only the full-sized Audi A8 offers more luxury and space than the A6. Despite this the Audi A6 has a reasonable base price, netting buyers an extremely luxurious car that comes with an enviable nameplate. Audi has traditionally focused heavily on technology and the new A6 isn't looking to buck that trend, buyers will be able to option their cars up with the latest in connectivity, driver assistance and infotainment technologies all wrapped up in a cockpit that looks like it came from the future.
