The redesigned 2019 Audi A6 has all-wheel drive, a 335-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 engine and a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. A mix of aluminum and steel has resulted in a more rigid chassis that helps increase the car's agility, Audi says. Here are A6 review snippets.
"The Audi A6's updated V-6 is punchy, but you really have to squash the right pedal, even in dynamic mode. Otherwise, it's butter-soft torque delivery all through the rev range. It's a quiet mill without much turbo noise."
— Jake Lingeman, Autoweek
"Paired to the V-6 is a 7-speed twin-clutch transmission, which is slightly unusual because Audi has been veering back to conventional torque converter automatics that can be shifted rapidly and controlled better than prior conventional automatics. No matter, though; the 7-speed operates very smoothly when needed and rapidly when hoofing it. Quattro all-wheel drive sends the power to all four corners."
— Jim Resnick, New York Daily News
"The sedan is enjoyable to drive on winding roads, but it's equally comfortable traveling at highway speeds. Its turbocharged V-6 engine is powerful and delivers immediate power, and the interior is roomy, luxurious, and comfortable for four adults."
— Jon Linkov, Consumer Reports
"In many ways, the 2019 Audi A6 performs much like its predecessor, and that's a good thing. We've praised the former for its powerful engine and optimal balance between performance and comfort. This latest evolution is just as deserving. Acceleration is smooth and effortless, though the engine noise doesn't sound as refined as competing V6s when you floor it."
