2016 Audi A6 3.0T: 5 Reasons to Buy – Video

Editor’s note: If you’re looking for information on a newer Audi A6, we’ve published an updated review: 2018 Audi A6 Review.


The 2016 Audi A6 3.0T is the premium sedan you’d choose to drive across the United States. That blend of power and precision with comfort and cool is irresistible. Here are five reasons why the A6 is number one in our book.

Designed to Impress

Even if someone didn’t really warm to the A6’s styling, they would still have to agree that it looks as modern as tomorrow. Classy and confident in equal parts, it’s also one of the sleekest in terms of aerodynamics.

Inner Beauty

As soon as you settle into the A6’s cabin, you enter a space devised for your every driving need. The leather-covered seats support you on long trips, the materials are all top-notch and the fit and finish are as good as this segment gets. See the 2016 Audi A6 models for sale near you

Bells and Whistles

Audi is usually right at the cutting edge of car technology and that’s exactly where we find the A6. Its standard navigation system includes 3D graphics and Google Earth maps. There’s a touchpad that reads your handwriting. And the car is a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices.

Ride the Drivetrain

Although the badge says T, which normally stands for turbocharger, this 3-liter V6 is actually supercharged for a strong surge of acceleration from low revs to high. Total muscle is 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque, sending this car flying from standstill to 60 in just 5.1 seconds. Yet it can still average 24 miles per gallon, thanks in part to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Talent for Traction

Audi’s famed Quattro all-wheel-drive system is standard on the 3.0T, helping the driver put as much power to the ground as possible. In normal conditions, there’s a bias toward the rear wheels — but when maximum grip is needed, it sends more torque to the fronts in milliseconds. This means a surefooted feel in all kinds of weather.

Autotrader Says

The 2016 Audi A6 3.0T is slightly restyled for this model year and the 3.0-liter V6 given extra power, making this super sedan even more attractive. Find an Audi A6 for sale
