Audi's middle child is naturally a mix of both the A4 and A8 worlds. Its looks are pure modern Ingolstadt with a bold 'Tornado' line bisecting its profile, new Singleframe grille, optional full LED headlamps, and restyled wheels. Inside is the full barrage of Audi safety, entertainment, and convenience goodies. Making its debut is the 420-horsepower S6 performance sedan with an all-new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 and seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission. The entry-level A6 is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged four-cylinder mated to a fuel-conserving CVT (25/33 city/highway mpg). The 211-horsepower/258 pound-feet engine also powers a new-for-2013 A6 with Quattro all-wheel drive, which gets an eight-speed automatic transmission (20/30). The same gearbox comes standard with the highest grade A6 with a 310-horsepower/325 pound-feet supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 (18/27). Although brand new in the 2012 model year, Audi has given the 2013 a few fresh goodies. Nowadays buyers will get standard start-stop and will be able to add new 20-inch wheels and layered Oak as standalone options. A 'bird's eye view' camera system can be had as well. Inside, passengers will be spoiled by supple leather, standard Bose stereo, and dark brown Walnut wood. In addition to speedier performance, S6 buyers will get bigger brakes and wheels, a 0.39-inch lowered ride height with standard adaptive suspension, new bodywork, unique Estoril Blue and Prism Silver paint jobs, and diamond stitching.
