2017 Audi A6: 5 Reasons to Buy – Video

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

There is so much to like about the 2017 Audi A6. It’s in a very competitive luxurious class, yet it somehow manages to remain a standout. Check out these five reasons to buy the refined Audi A6.

Turbocharged Performance

German engineering is like nothing else out there, period. Audi gave the A6 a pretty powerful base engine. It’s a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder rated at 252 horsepower. If you want more, the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 should more than do the trick. The V6 produces a commanding 333 hp that can get the A6 moving in a flash, while returning 29 miles per gallon on the highway with the quattro all-wheel drive.

Innovative Tech

When you buy an Audi, nothing goes overlooked — and that includes technology. The A6 has some of the most innovative technology out there. Up front, the standard 6.5-inch screen can be upgraded to an 8-in screen. Also coming standard is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to keep you connected to your compatible smartphone. You should also consider opting for a package that includes a cool head-up display and even a top view camera. See the 2017 Audi A6 models for sale near you

Elegant Design

Audi designers deserve a lot of credit, because the A6 is a beauty. It all starts up front with Audi’s distinctive Singleframe grille and standard LED running lights. It continues with some beautiful body lines and standard 18-in wheels. The A6’s rear cleans up well with LED taillights and trapezoid exhaust outlets. With so much good-looking talent in this class, the A6 design aims to keep competitors on their toes.


Audi is as serious about safety as anything else. In fact, they gave the A6 the innovative pre sense safety system. Pre sense is a clever system that has the ability to sense a collision, then apply safety technology for you if you don’t react in time. A similar example is that if it detects a possible crash, the seat belts tighten up and the brake lights flash. Another bonus is that it even has an upgrade with more innovative safety. For added peace of mind, the A6 also earned a 5-star overall government crash-test rating.

Audi Quattro

Audi is top-notch in all areas, but their all-wheel drive really is exceptional. They call it Quattro, and if you can, it’s certainly worth the upgrade. Especially if you experience weather elements frequently. You’ll be saving at the pump as well: the A6 Quattro returns over 30 mpg on the highway with the turbocharged 2.0-liter.

Autotrader Says

The A6 has an attractive design, a powerful and efficient engine and it’s luxurious. What more could you want from a midsize luxury sedan? Give yourself the pleasure of a test drive in the 2017 Audi A6.
