2021 Audi A6 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 Audi A6?

The Audi A6 is a mid-size luxury sedan that bridges the gap between the German automaker’s smaller A4 sedan and the full-size A8 sedan. Engines range from mild to wild, with the S6’s 444-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 falling into the latter category. 

Base sedans are powered by a 248-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A 335-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 is available, and this engine also powers the Allroad wagon. All-wheel drive is standard. Competitors include the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class

What’s New on the 2021 Audi A6?

The A6 was redesigned for the 2019 model year; changes for 2021 consist of the reshuffling of some features within option packages. 

What Features in the 2021 Audi A6 Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • Dual center touchscreens
  • Leather seating surfaces
  • Power moonroof 
  • Heated front seats
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Apple CarPlay, Android Auto smartphone connectivity

Available features include:

  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Bang & Olufsen premium stereo
  • Head-up display
  • Heated steering wheel
  • 360-degree camera system
  • Sport suspension

Should I Buy the 2021 Audi A6?

With a choice of body styles and powertrains, there’s probably an A6 that will meet your luxury car needs. Interior quality is a familiar Audi highlight, but we’re less impressed by the A6’s adoption of many touch-sensitive controls. The sedan’s trunk is also on the small side.

Just purchased

I originally owned an Audi A4, which was an excellent vehicle, very reliable. I expect no less from the A6, which offers all the latest in safety and convenience options. So far I am very pleased with the car and I am only scratching the features it offers. Great ride.

Love this car!

Got the premium plus with Executive pkg, black optic and V6. Love this car! Only had it a week, but happy with the purchase. Was originally looking at Mercedes as I had one for 13 years, prior to my Jeep. Price and drivability was superior with the Audi for all the features I wanted.
