For 2017, expect the replenished Audi A6 to come with generous passenger seat, sporty handling, finely finished interior, an agile supercharged and diesel powerplants, superb crash test scores, and impressive fuel economy ratings for the diesel engine, among others. Expect the vehicle’s release date sometime next year.
The vehicle compares similarly to legendary Derek Jeter – a baseball player in more ways than meets the eye. Just as the athlete, the new A6 can do basically everything just as Derek can do anything save for hawking hot dogs and beers to his adoring enthusiast. The vehicle comes with exceptional fuel efficient engine, a finely crafted cabin, an athletic handling, and spacious passenger accommodations.
Furthermore, its engines in particular offer a solid performance than even what the power output suggest. In particular, the TDI version offers something out of this world with its “God-given” ability to hit 60 mph in less than 5.6 seconds. Also, the substantial luxury sedan’s EPA ratings stand at 29mpg/combined. Without even considering what lies under its bonnet, the 2017 Audi A6 still returns with a spectacular performance, upscale ambience, and an agile handling that only compares to the bigwigs in the motor industry.
Undoubtedly, the new A6 tops among our favorites considering other vehicles in the same segment. Other alternatives worth putting your time into include the Lexus GS 350, the BMW 5 Series, Cadillac CTS, and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
