Disappointing test drive
December 20, 2017
I really wanted to like the S6. C&D magazine gave it a win against the F10 M5 and E65. I drove it twice, extensively, because I really wanted to like it.
Pros: The engine and transmission allow for extremely quick acceleration. It made me smile every time I put my foot down. It just GOES, extremely effortless acceleration. The interior is very well made. The displays are clear and beautiful.
Cons: The car is not fun to drive unless you only care about acceleration. It is solid, quiet, stable, it can take high speed turns well, but the steering is so lifeless. You can change it to a nicely firm "sport" setting, but there is still no steering feel. It's like a better Lexus LS than Lexus could muster. I gave my $80k to the Porsche dealer next door.
