The Audi A6 has been a stylish choice for luxury shoppers for years, and Audi updated the sedan for 2019 to help it stay fashion-forward outside — but the overhauled interior is perhaps too forward for our liking. Still, Audi gave us a gift for 2020: the lusted-after RS6 Avant wagon with 592 horsepower.
The A6 launched for 2019 with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 making 335 hp, followed by a 248-hp, turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder added late in the model year. Both engines carried over for the 2020 model. The related, sportier S6 sedan returned for 2020 after a model year off, built from the same platform as the A6 but powered by a turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 with mild-hybrid technology good for 444 hp. Model-year 2019-20 A6 models pair their engines to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, while the S6 will use an eight-speed auto. Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive is standard on all A6 and S6 models.
The 2020 RS6 Avant grabbed headlines, but Audi also confirmed that a different kind of wagon is returning for 2020: the A6 Allroad, Audi’s version of a rugged wagon in the same spirit as Volvo’s Cross Country models. (Don’t confuse that with the A4 Allroad, a smaller car based on the A4.)
If you’re shopping for a mid-size luxury car, Audi might have an A6 or S6 for you. Find out everything you need to know about it below:
