2018 Audi A6 3.0T Quattro Review

The 2018 Audi A6 3.0T Quattro additionally accumulates well from a performance standpoint. The car checked below had the 3.0-liter supercharged V-6-- the bestselling powerplant in the lineup and also the exact same engine that has powered all of the abovementioned comparison-test victors. All A6s with the 3.0-liter function Quattro all-wheel drive and an eight-speed transmission.

The 3.0 T has 23 additional horse power for 2018, as well as it revealed at the test track. We clocked a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.6 seconds, which is a half-second much better compared to the quickest A6 3.0 T we had actually formerly recorded and a complete 2nd ahead of the most current guinea pig. Similarly, the 2016 design's quarter-mile result of 13.3 seconds at 105 mph bests all A6s that have actually preceded. The Mercedes-Benz E400 goes to the very least a few tenths behind on both marks, and also the aging BMW 535i is also slower. Quattro aids the A6 suit the 60-mph sprint of the hot-rod Cadillac Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Vsport, however the major horse power benefit of the Caddy's twin-turbocharged V-6 indicates it walks away from the Audi in the quarter-mile.

The 333-hp Audi engine has great deals of pull-- and not just when the gas pedal is pinned to the flooring. Torque, which peaks at 325 lb-ft from 2900 to 5300 rpm, comes "at the shiver of a huge toe," as we kept in mind previously. The ubiquitous ZF eight-speed changes specifically when it must: quickly when you want it to, imperceptibly in more kicked back conditions. The gear selector itself has been changed, and also it's more straightforward to run (its appearance isn't really as modern, but we don't mind).

Speaking of appearances, the merely styled yet good-looking 2018 Audi A6 3.0T Quattro gets lots of authorizing looks in car park, although we believed the black grille looked rather dull on this uplevel automobile. The dapper 20-inch "Black Optic" wheels aid the designing cause yet, thankfully, do not appear to endanger trip quality. The A6 almost has the visibility of the bigger A8, yet it practically really feels as little as an A4 when you're hustling it on a country road. We 'd prefer a little bit much less roadway noise and also body roll, as well as the steering is a tad sluggish off-center, yet these characteristics are not improper for an auto such as this, which is a lot more showing off deluxe shuttle compared to sports car.

And few sports cars have this numerous animal comforts. The shade head-up display is welcome, and adjusting its setups does not call for digging right into any type of challenging menus. Changing the elevation of the photo is as easy as transforming a specialized knob; press the handle and also the image disappears. Operating the acquainted MMI infomercial system is almost as easy. Utilize the navigation function, and also you'll be dealt with to a high-resolution Google Maps photo not simply on the seven-inch primary MMI display yet likewise on the smaller redundant screen in the middle of the scale collection. Various other features (sound, phone) can be quickly and also quickly phoned on either display. Climate-controlled seats and also lovely ash timber inlays are glamorous touches.

Every one of this excellence does not come inexpensive. As examined, our A6 Status set you back $66,900. Still, that's a good value for an automobile with so many high-end features that additionally drives this well as well as looks and feels so great. And that's why we remain to provide the A6 leading marks.
