Presenting the 2013 Luxury Car of the Year - The Audi A6

 

Car and Driver summed up their review of the seventh generation Audi A6 very nicely by saying it’s “pretty close to perfect”. All it takes is ten minutes behind the wheel to realize that the A6 strikes a remarkable balance between the power and agile handling of a sports car and the comfortable ride of a true luxury sedan. That’s really what makes Consumer Report’s 2013 Luxury Car of the Year a step above the competition – it encompasses the driving characteristics of the BMW 5 series and the more traditional luxuries of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

 

 

Powertrains available in the Audi A6 include: a 2.0 litre turbocharged inline four cylinder, a 3.0 litre supercharged V-6 and new for the 2014 model year, a 3.0L turbocharged V-6 diesel. All of these engines are paired to Audi’s ultra smooth and efficient 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.

 

 

Engine Power Output Fuel Economy (L/100km)
2.0T 211hp, 258lb-ft of torque City: 10.5 Highway: 6.8
3.0T 310hp, 325lb-ft of torque City: 11.3 Highway: 7.3
3.0TDI 240hp, 428lb-ft of torque City: 8.5 Highway: 5.3

 

 

The A6’s power is delivered to all four wheels through Audi’s latest version of quattro. Quattro is a rear-bias all-wheel drive system, where 40% percent of the vehicle’s power is sent to the front wheels and 60 percent is distributed to the rear. Quattro excels in all weather conditions because it dynamically distributes torque while the vehicle’s in motion and is constantly optimizing traction.

Audi’s slogan “Vorsprung durch Technik” (advancement through technology) really comes alive in the A6. Progressive features like Night Vision, Active Lane Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Indication system, Head Up Display, and a Top-view Camera are all available on this full-size luxury sedan. Night Vision utilizes a thermal imaging camera that highlights pedestrians and animals in the vehicle’s path. Active Lane Assist will give the driver haptic feedback when the car begins to depart from its lane. The Adaptive Cruise Control works from 0 to 249km/h and can bring the A6 to a full stop when necessary. Audi’s Blind Spot Indication System is constantly monitoring the vehicle’s blind spot and warns the driver when it is not safe to change lanes. The Head Up Display keeps the A6’s travelling speed in the driver’s line of sight at all times and the Top View Camera provides a 360° view of the vehicle’s surroundings.

Respected as best-in-class, Audi’s interiors have always been top notch, but the cabin in the current A6 raises the bar even higher. With genuine hand stitched leather and real fine grain wood inlays, the brilliantly tailored cabin is designed to transport occupants safely, elegantly and comfortably. The atmosphere, overall quality and attention to detail inside the A6 are simply unmatched in its segment (U.S. News, 2013).

 

 

The A6’s attractive styling, inspiring performance and ostentatious, tech-filled interior, gives drivers a higher level of refinement than all competing luxury vehicles (Meiners, 2011).
