Redesign adds to 2012 Audi A6's appeal

The Audi A6 midsize luxury sedan benefits from a redesign for 2012. It offers an upscale interior, a stylish exterior that draws inspiration from models like the Audi R8, and a pair of powerful and fuel-efficient new engines. The interior offers more space than before, too, especially in the rear. Models with the new optional supercharged 3.0-liter V6 are eligible for Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system, while those with the base turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine use front-wheel drive. The A6 is fun and sporty without sacrificing refinement or luxury features. If you're looking for a well-appointed luxury sedan, the Audi A6 is an excellent choice.
