What’s new

Completely redesigned for 2019
New infotainment system
New V6 mild hybrid powertrain
Part of the fifth A6 generation introduced for 2019

Our pick is the midgrade Premium Plus trim for the items you get on top of the base Premium model. In particular, the larger infotainment screen makes operation just a little bit less distracting. On top of that, the Premium Plus trim is eligible for more options that include luxury seating and advanced safety features.

OVERVIEW

The Audi A6 is all-new for 2019, representing the fifth generation of the midsize luxury sedan. In many ways, the 2019 A6 performs and behaves on the road just like its predecessor. And that’s just fine by us since both provide a good mix of sporty handling and comfort.

The big news is the amount of technology that brings the A6 up to date. Audi has given the powertrain a new 48-volt mild hybrid component that increases fuel economy by 2 mpg. There are also a lot of additions related to advanced safety features and infotainment. Unfortunately, the new MMI system is now based on a dual-touchscreen setup, and we’ve found it’s more distracting to use (taking the driver’s attention from the road ahead) than the old system.

Otherwise, the 2019 Audi A6 is a solid choice for a midsize luxury sedan. Compared to its main rivals, the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, this A6 is pleasantly understated and packed with more tech-based features.

Audi A6 models

The 2019 Audi A6 is available in three trim levels: the well-appointed base Premium, the Premium Plus, which comes with some tech upgrades, and the top-of-the-line Prestige trim. All models are powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 (335 horsepower, 369 pound-feet of torque) that is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A 48-volt mild hybrid system assists with automatic stop-start and allows the gasoline engine to shut off for brief highway periods. Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system is standard.

Standard features for the Premium trim include 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, heated and auto-dimming mirrors, a panoramic sunroof, automatic wipers, front and rear parking sensors, keyless remote entry, selectable drive modes, frontal collision warning with automatic emergency braking, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated power-adjustable front seats, driver-seat memory functions, and 40/20/40-split folding rear seats.

On the tech side, you also get an 8.8-inch main infotainment touchscreen, an 8.6-inch lower touchscreen, four USB ports, a universal garage door opener, Audi Connect Plus (emergency telematics, vehicle monitoring, advanced map functions, and a Wi-Fi hotspot), a navigation system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 10-speaker audio system with satellite radio.

The available Convenience package adds a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic and vehicle-exit alerts, keyless entry and ignition, a hands-free trunk release, power-folding mirrors, and a wireless charging pad with signal booster.

The Premium Plus trim includes all of the above, along with automatic high-beam headlights, a digital instrument panel, a larger 10.1-inch main touchscreen, a surround-view camera, enhanced voice controls, and a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

To this, you can add the Warm Weather package that includes quad-zone automatic climate control, rear window sunshades, ventilated front seats, and additional lumbar adjustments for the front passenger seat.

The range-topping Prestige model comes with the Warm Weather package, as well as upgraded headlights, soft-close doors, a head-up display, multicolor ambient interior lighting, manual rear passenger sunshades, and dual-pane acoustic glass.

All A6 trims are eligible for rear-seat side airbags and 20-inch wheels that also come with a sport-tuned suspension. There’s also a Cold Weather package with heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel.

The Premium Plus and the Prestige can be further outfitted with the Individual Contour Seating package, which bundles premium leather upholstery and upgraded front seats with heating, ventilation and massage. There’s also the Driver Assistance package with lane keeping assist, side collision warning, a traffic sign reader, and adaptive cruise control with Traffic Jam Assist.

Twenty- or 21-inch wheels are optional (the 20s can also be bundled with a sport-tuned suspension and summer-rated tires). Other notable options include an adaptive suspension with rear-wheel steering, a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium audio system, and a night-vision system.
