2019 Audi A6 Reviewed, Found A Quality, And Very Competent, Item

With midsize premium saloons being so excellent nowadays, it almost doesn’t matter which badge you opt for, since they are all extremely good products.

But if you demand the very best from your daily means of transportation, then always opting for the brand new model should work perfectly as a strategy, meaning that something like the all-new 2019 Audi A6 should definitely be taken into consideration.

This is the very first official review of the new A6, and Steve Sutcliffe seemed to be impressed with it as soon as he laid eyes on it. He starts his review by applauding Audi for a job well done with regards to the car’s exterior and interior appearance. At one point, he even calls this the best-looking non-RS model Audi has ever built, which is high praise indeed.

The version he got to drive was the 50 TDI Quattro model, with 286 PS (282 HP) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque, which is able to rocket to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.5 seconds with the help of an 8-speed Tiptronic gearbox and all-wheel drive.

Moving on, the reviewer kept dropping compliments left and right about the ride quality, performance and overall feel. He does, however, point out that while the A6’s steering feel isn’t bad, it’s not quite on the same level as what you get in the BMW 5-Series – which in a way was to be expected.

Overall, it would seem Audi really hit it out of the park with their all-new A6. Would you buy one over an E-Class or 5-Series though?

  • VERY NICE BUT AUDI COULD HAVE DONE A MUCH BETTER JOB OF HIDING THE SENSORS IN THE GRILLE.

    All cars in this class are refined. 😉

    Last month I rode in a new E-Class E220d Taxi and wow, that Diesel engine was so smooth, quiet and refined. It was honestly so quiet and smooth I thought it was a gasoline engine. I can only imagine how smooth those new inline-6s and the other higher-end motors are.

    • SteersUright

      Exactly right. I’ve driven in nearly all of them over the years and they’re damn well matched for build quality, refinement, and luxury. Boils down to preferences I guess. That said, in the long haul, among the Germans, I’ve only really seen the latest generation MB’s hold up the best mechanically, though it really is a crapshoot. And what does it matter to the well-to-do lease-only demographic anyhow? I like to buy my cars and 2-3 years old, for value, so I look at those things. lol.

    I have BMW G30 with diesel engine and it has a steering. if you chose sport or eco-mode than you get even more steering

    Driving a current Audi (and granted I haven’t checked out the new system) I like the turn and click system of the current MMI so going touch would probably be a demerit for me. I like how BMW gives you the option of touch/wheel click and the new MBUX gives you the option as well which to me is the better setup. On looks alone, I’d give it to the Audi.

  • Craig

    Not sure why exactly. Maybe it’s because whenever I think ‘Audi’ I think of an ‘Audi Fox’ my brother once owned. But ‘Audi’ is NOT ‘up there’ with BMW and Mercedes. I think of it more as an ‘Acura’ than anything else. A ‘Passat’ with fancier trimmings.

  • dumblikeyou2

    That engine note is a bit much though.

  • Infinite1

    I’d take the Audi over a Merc and BMW any day.

  • nauticalone

    Nice car. The quality of today’s Audi really is top notch! I’d take the 3.0 TFSI V6 or wait for the 4.0 V8 S6.

    • botornot387

      Most likely the S6 will be powered by a higher output version of the 2.9L TTV6 from the RS5

      • nauticalone

        You may be right? I’d prefer the 4.0 V8 though! We’ll see soon enough.

        • botornot387

          i mean who wouldn’t!!

  • nastinupe

    I really want that new A7.
