Audi A6 Exterior Styling

What the Critics Say

"The A6's interior design is sleek, modern, and nicely put together from excellent-quality materials. Soft leather adorns the seats and armrests, rich-looking wood and nickel-finished metal trim is tastefully applied to the dash and doors, and the majority of the A6's secondary controls-climate, drive mode, etc.-are handled by a large touch-sensitive panel underneath the main infotainment display." -- Car and Driver

"The A6's interior is excellent; it sets Audi as a design leader among luxury brands. Material quality is top-notch and technology abounds; check out the dual-touchscreen infotainment or optional digital gauge display. At speed, the cabin is almost unnervingly quiet." -- Motor Trend

What's New for 2023

Only a handful of very slight adjustments have been made to the successful formula of the Audi A6. Premium models with the optional Convenience package now receive adaptive cruise control. Elsewhere, Prestige grades now come standard with remote parking. Finally, Prestige models can now be ordered with a headliner finished in black suede.
