Negotiate Smarter with the Best Car Buying Tools

If you’re looking for a new executive car that’s got lots of style, tons of space, and an unbeatable cost then let us introduce you to your next purchase. The 2014 Audi A6. The car features the traditional handsome looks expected from Audi while simultaneously bringing luxury and class into one convenient package. Performance is more than excellent and the design of the car is absolutely stunning. Keep on reading to find out why the Audi A6 is one of our top picks from the luxury sports car market.



Lets kick it off with the space offered inside. Despite the fact that the 2014 Audi A6 is shorter than its predecessor, Audi has somehow been able to make it more roomy, especially in the back. Legroom is ample, allowing backseat passengers to stretch out their legs even with a tall passenger in the front, and headroom is also more than enough to seat a full adult comfortably. Even with a full car, you’ll be able to fit everyone’s luggage into the trunk which offers a 530-litre capacity. You also have the option of folding down the backseats if you need to bring along any longer items such as skis.

What about the design of the 2014 A6? Well, lets just say it speaks for itself. Audi’s sophisticated and luxurious standards definitely shine through and make this sports car a looker on the road. Its the exact same story on the inside as well. The stunning sweeping dashboard resembles the oh-so-desirable Audi A7 coupe and everything feels very well built. Audi always seems to screw their screws a little bit tighter than everyone else.

As for standard equipment, its very generous in the 2014 Audi A6. All cars get leather interior, parking sensors, and navigation which you can upgrade to have Google maps. As for the other available options, the list is so extensive we won’t bother going through all of them. However, you can definitely configure quite the fun toy if you have a few spare thousand dollars you’re willing to spend.

Now for the fun part. The 2014 Audi A6 runs super light thanks to the aluminum Audi used to build its body, both in the sense of its cost and its weight. In fact, the A6’s nearest rival - the BMW 528i -  is over 300-pounds heavier. Combined with the standard 2.0-litre turbo engine, that’ll give you 11.76L/100km city driving and 8.11L/100km on the highway. As an added benefit, the Audi A6 only emits about 130 grams per kilometre of carbon monoxide, significantly lower than rivals in its luxury class.

Another benefit of the lower body is the agile handling of the car. The 2014 A6 has been redesigned to absorb any bumps and swerves in the road much better than the older model. The suspension has been retouched and improved in order to better absorb some of the shock. The cabin is well insulated against any road noise which makes for a very pleasant cruiser.

For a great blend of style and value, look no further than the 2014 Audi A6. Its sure to strike a chord in your heart.

Power and Performance:

If you're only into the A6 for the Audi nameplate, there's a tepid base version for you. But if you're seeking ultra-high economy or muscular performance, there are three other editions cued up, all with forced-induction engines.

The mostly passion-free standard Audi A6 pairs a continuously variable transmission with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 220 horsepower. It's a combo rendered more sedate by the A6's size and weight--even more so with the optional all-wheel drive, which at least adopts an eight-speed automatic instead of the CVT. It's not slow, with 0-60 mph times in the 7.5-second range, but it's a less convincing example of luxury in context here, especially with the CVT, which takes away some of what we love so much about the turbo four.

We'd be much more pleased to pay the premium up front for Audi's excellent new turbodiesel 240-hp 3.0-liter six. Its powerband is much narrower, and there's just a little more noise and vibration, but the payoffs are many. Performance through standard all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic is smart: 0-60 mph happens in about 5.5 seconds, thanks to 428 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is outrageous, at 24/38 mpg, or 29 mpg combined. The A6 TDI is better equipped, too, and isn't caught in the features and size limbo that the base A6 can be, compared with a high-end A4.

The other flavors of the A6 are also strikingly fast performers that don't sacrifice that much efficiency. The mid-line option is a gasoline-powered 3.0-liter V-6, with supercharging and direct injection. By the numbers, this V-6 blasts out 310 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, all harnessed to the eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive with a rear torque bias of 40:60. Audi says it's good for 0-60 mph times of 5.4 seconds, and the same governed top speed of 130 mph. It's slightly more refined in feel than the TDI, but by so little it's a difficult justification.

Interiors and Special Features:

The 2014 Audi A6 boasts not only our favorite interior in the segment, but one of the finest passenger cabins money can buy: an unmatched mix of contemporary design, high-quality materials and impeccable build quality. The A6 is also the choice in the segment for tech-lovers, offering dedicated Internet access that enables Google-powered maps and location information, and turns the car into a Wi-Fi hot spot for up to eight personal devices. The center console-mounted volume knob, placed conveniently adjacent to the main MMI (Multi Media Interface) control, remains a favorite small touch.

Although the 2014 A6 2.0T Premium boasts one of the lowest starting prices in the category, there's not a single glaring omission from its standard-equipment set. It includes all the luxuries you'd expect in the segment – leather, heated front seats, sunroof, automatic headlights, seat memory, etc. – plus many of the newer niceties like keyless start (but not keyless entry), Bluetooth phone/audio connectivity and iPod/iPhone integration. Outstanding EPA fuel-economy ratings (11.76/8.11 L/100km city/highway with front-drive) make the entry-priced A6 one of the best values going in the luxury class.

Audi's 2014 A6 offers an impressive array of comfort, convenience and safety technologies. In addition to all the benefits of dedicated Internet access, the A6 offers adaptive cruise control that can stop-and-go the sedan through a traffic jam. Audi Night Vision Assistant can detect nearby pedestrians on dark roads. A color head-up display projects speed and navigation information onto the windshield, close to your field of vision. Audi Pre Sense Plus monitors the road ahead and can warn of a potential collision. For this year, the parking assist system gets new top- and corner-view cameras.

Safety features:

Standard safety equipment on the 2014 Audi A6 includes antilock disc brakes, stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and front knee airbags. Rear side airbags, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning/keeping assist and a blind-spot warning system are either optional or included with the upper trims.

The standard Audi Pre-Sense system can warn the driver, tension the seatbelts and close the windows if a potential collision is detected, while the optional Audi Pre-Sense Plus system can do all that, plus fully tighten the seatbelts and automatically apply the brakes full force to mitigate the severity of an imminent crash. The A6's Prestige trim also comes with Audi Pre-Sense Rear, which uses the brake light to warn traffic behind the vehicle in the event of a rear collision, employing additional preventive protective measures should the situation turn critical.

In Edmunds brake testing, an A6 3.0T with the Sport package and summer performance tires came to a stop from 60 mph in 111 feet, an average distance for a car in this class with summer tires. Expect longer distances on A6s with all-season tires. In crash testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the A6 received the highest possible rating of "Good" in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact and roof strength tests.
