The 2014 Audi A6 is a mid-size luxury sport sedan that offers strong performance while also delivering all-weather confidence and good gas mileage. Interior and backseat space are also a bit better than in other rear-wheel-drive European sport sedans, and the interior appointments themselves stand out as more fashion-forward. Audi claims best-in-class fuel economy for the 2.0T model, which achieves up to 24 mpg city, 33 highway. A new 3.0 TDI clean diesel offers even more impressive fuel economy, with returns of 24 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. Advanced technology--whether for safety, information, or entertainment--is where the A6 really shines. It offers blind-spot monitors, a night vision system, a head-up display, parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and other leading-edge safety features. The A6 is also ahead of the curve with its excellent MMI Touch system, which includes a simplified interface and a scratch-pad controller that lets you input addresses by tracing individual letters. Meanwhile, the S6 remains a performance standout, with performance that propels it to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds.
