Check out the 2018 Audi A6! With competitor luxury cars such as the Jaguar XF and BMW 5 Series shaking up the auto market, Audi had to go an extra mile and make the 2018 Audi A6 a luxury car to reckon with. The new model’s design is more or less like the larger A8, but it features reduced overhangs and full-LED headlights. It also has adaptive air suspension and lower stance which makes it appear a little sportier than the A8. Despite its low stance appearance, the roof is actually higher than before thus improved passenger space. The 2018 Audi A6 models are either front-wheel or all-wheel-drive. You can also choose between a supercharged V-6 and a turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine. The Audi A6 is available in Prestige, Premium Plus, and Premium trims, all of which have varying levels of comfort.

The mid-sized sedan offers perfect performance even in its base trim. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine boasts of a 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, a factor that will sway performance minded car buyers. The supercharged 3.0-liter V6 model has a 340 horsepower and available on the Prestige and Premium Plus trims. The model’s front wheel drive models feature a seven-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive version features an eight-speed automatic transmission system which gives the vehicle a firm hold and the ability to swap gears with ease. The 2018 Audi A6’s fuel efficiency is also splendid with an EPA rating of 34 MPG on the highway and 25 MPG in the city, which results in a combined rating of 28 MPG. The model features an MMI navigation system along with keyless entry and ignition.

Regarding safety, the model has an automatic emergency braking system and adaptive cruise control mechanism which are a standard on all trims. Automatic high-beam headlamps are available on the Prestige and Premium Plus trim levels for an additional $2,500. For a similar amount, the higher trim levels can be fitted with a night vision system. The system uses an infrared camera to scan the road ahead and project the images on a screen. The model also has an Electronic Stability Control (ESC) feature which detects a loss of traction and responds by braking to avoid excessive body motion.

The 2018 Audi A6 has an MSRP of $50,675 including destination charges. That’s around $2,000 more than last year’s model, but with the more content the 2018 model carries, the price is well worth it. The base trim is now being sold at around $52,900, with the 3.0-liter V6 supercharged model begins at $57,500. You could advance to the Prestige trim which costs around $61,400. For people who prefer even higher performance, you could go for the S6 Premium Plus, and S6 Prestige starts at $71,900 and $74,400 respectively.

Audi dealers are awarding incentives to sell the A6 which could save you up to $4,000. However, you will be foregoing this discount should you choose to purchase your 2018 Audi A6 through the Audi Financial services. The manufacturers were offering a $3,000 finance bonus if you chose the latter option and bought your vehicle in September. Returning Audi customers, qualify for an extra $1,000 credit if they lease through the Audi Financial Services or choose a new financing option. Trade-in is not a requirement for such customers.
