With its impressive diesel fuel economy, a finely finished interior with ample passenger space, top crash-test scores, a strong supercharged and diesel V6 engines, and a confident and sporty handling, the new 2017 Audi A6 is one of favorite midsize luxury sedans. Its release should be expected in February next year, according to recent news.
If at all the A6 would characterize a baseball player, it would unequivocally be young Derek Jeter – a celebrity star who would do anything for his adorable fans apart from selling hot dogs and beer to them. indeed, the A6 treats its occupants well thanks to the strong yet fuel efficient engines, athletic handling, roomy accommodations, and a finely crafted cabin, and just like Derek, loos pretty dang sharp in the process.
One sizzling trait that seems to trail in the footprints of every A6 is probably the superb sense of refinement that the model offers. And even in its basic form, the A6 still manages to offer a sizzling performance and a well-appointed cabin. Additionally, the mechanical components have been improved and provide a smooth ride and solid output figures.
The TDI, for instance, would perhaps be best described as having your own cake and eating it. This impressive mill has the audacity to propel the A5 from 0-60 mph in an eye-popping 5.6 seconds. Again, EPA says solid output figures of about 29 mpg should be expected. It therefore doesn’t come as a surprise when leading automobile giants crown the A6 an “A” rating.
Even so, there are still other well-rounded sedans in the market that offer the same level of agile handling, high-tech features and upscale ambience as the A6. Common suspects include the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 2017 BMW 5 Series, Lexus GS 350, 2017 Cadillac CTS, and the Lexus GS 450h.
