Model line includes A6 2.0T, A6 3.0T, A6 3.0T competition and S6 4.0T.
A6 2.0T with FWD or available quattro® all-wheel drive.
The available quattro® rear sport differential on A6 3.0T competition and S6 variants actively distributes torque between the rear wheels.
When turning into or accelerating in a curve, the majority of the torque flows to the outside wheel, helping propel the vehicle around the turn while neutralizing oversteer or understeer.
The 2017 A6 and S6 offer the unmistakable appearance of full LED lighting technology. Consuming only 40 watts, the high beams, turn signals, daytime running lights and low beams all feature this efficient, yet powerful technology. The LED taillights are 10 mm flatter than the previous model, appearing even more focused, which contributes to a more pronounced horizontal styling.
Available head-up display (HUD) on A6 3.0T and S6 variants projects relevant driving information directly in the driver's field of vision. Displayed information can be customized using MMI® touch, giving each driver their ideal HUD.
Available night vision assistant with pedestrian and animal detection warning can detect pedestrians and large animals approximately 1,000 ft. ahead.
