2014 Audi S6
NADAguides Test Drive Review
Overall Score

67/70

Pros

The Audi S6 is powerful, exciting to drive, comfortable, practical, modern in style and built with precision. It magically produces 20 mpg (combined) out of a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 with 420 horses and all-wheel drive. Acceleration is more than enough in all driving situations and reported 0-60 times come in at 4.5 seconds. All this while wrapped in safety equipment, fine leather and precise controls and interfaces.

Cons

This sporty sedan comes with a hefty price tag and is more expensive than the competition.

What's new for 2014

New in the 2014 model is a blind-spot warning system that comes standard with the vehicle, power-folding mirrors, and a black optics package that really steps up the appearance of the car.

Exterior Impressions

The Audi S6 is recognizable as it visually fits within the Audi sedan lineup of the 4, 5 and 7 in terms of shape and design elements. Sizing larger than the S4 and smaller than the S7. The 2014 Audi S6 expensive, high-class look fits the bill. The exterior provides slick and sporty lines with a bit of an edge for in a midsize sedan. The precise fit and finish shows off more of Audi's dedication and focus on engineering.

This is where the Audi S6 separates itself from competitors such as the BMW M5 and Mercedes Benz E63. As expected, the S6 impresses with it use of Audi's superior cabin detailing and industry-leading infotainment features. Found in the S6 are only top quality materials, great fitting materials, quality finishes and engineering with all interior amenities. Multicontour diamond stitched leather seating with ventilation and massaging make short and long drives enjoyable. The cold weather package adds heated seats. Also much appreciated is the standard Multi Media Interface system (MMI) controlling entertainment, communication and navigation functions via a dash-mounted pop-up screen as well as a knob/buttons located on the on the center console.

In the new Audi S6 modern advances await. Passengers are now able to have Wi-Fi hotspot capability in their car also, a Google- Earth navigation system is included in the car.

Driving Impressions

The power and response of the V8 engine is invigorating and always plentiful while achieving impressive fuel economy, all considered. In the 2014 Audi S6 noise is kept to a minimum making for an enjoyable, peaceful ride. The quick steering handling is supported by Audi's legendary all-wheel drive system and sport-tuned air suspension providing a precise, nimble and perfect road feel making it a true sport sedan. Turning and cornering are a breeze in the S6 as the turning radius is 19.5'. Acceleration is great in the sport sedan, it is quick and very smooth. Although the car may be heavy it is impressively light and very responsive having no complaints in this area.
