In addition to the physical comfort of the high-end, roomy interior of the 2019 Audi A6, there are plenty of features to make your drives as enjoyable as possible. You'll love the panoramic sunroof for sunny days and road trips, in addition to features like standard navigation, Bluetooth® connectivity, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay® integration, and a 10-speaker stereo (16-speaker stereo on the Premium Plus and Prestige trims).

3. Available V6 engine

The Audi A6 received a full redesign for 2019, and that includes the engine. The V6 engine option got a small horsepower boost in 2018. For 2019, the two lower trims come with a 248-hp, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but look for the Prestige trim if a powerful 335-hp, turbocharged V6 is more your style.

4. Standard all-wheel drive

For 2019 models, the Audi A6 comes with Quattro® all-wheel drive as standard. The major advantage of this is increased torque because all four wheels are driving, not just the front two. So there's enhanced grip, designed to get you out of sticky situations—like wet or icy roads, or even off-road—with ease. Also, all-wheel drive can help you accelerate better, providing added power.

5. Plenty of driver aids

Year comparisons

2011-2014 Audi A6 (Third Generation)

Like the more recent models, this generation of Audi A6 offered a choice between a turbocharged four-cylinder or a V6 engine. All-wheel drive became available for the base model in 2013. That same year also ushered in the S6—the performance-oriented version of the A6. Additionally, a stop-start system was introduced for the S6 and the 3.0L Prestige trim.

2014-2018 Audi A6 (Fourth Generation)

The fourth generation of the Audi A6 was updated for an even more appealing exterior design, including new lights and grille for a more powerful look. 2014 also brought the option of a more powerful 310-hp, V6 engine, while the lush interiors remained basically the same. Front and rear parking sensors were introduced as options for the base model, and as standard for the Prestige trim.

2018-Present Audi A6 (Fifth Generation)

The Audi A6 was revamped again for its fifth generation. Heated leather seats became standard features, and the base trim came with a sunroof. Both the 2.0L and 3.0L engines were given a horsepower boost for this generation (to 252 hp and 340 hp, respectively), and the interiors were tweaked to boost the luxury and sportiness this vehicle exudes.
