2012 Audi A6

  • Great balance – the car did everything well, from managing a mundane highway commute to ripping along a spirited windy road.
  • Styling – you can’t miss the profile of an Audi on the road, and as the first brand to embrace LED lighting technology, the car has a trademark stare. It’s sinister seeing the lights come towards you at dusk.
  • The 3.0 liter supercharged V6 – Audi’s awarding winning engine building skills have paid off again with the supercharged 310hp V6. It’s lively, smooth, and efficient with plenty of get up oomph to hustle down the road, especially considering the size of the car. The 325 ft-lbs of torque are easily accessible at a very reasonable range from 2900 to 4500 RPM.


  • Tire noise – The 19-inch sport package wheel and Pirelli P Zero tire combination proved to be a bit on the noisy side. Depending on road surfaces, the degree of annoyance varied.
  • Somewhat flat seating surfaces – the A6 Sport Package does not come with more aggressively bolstered S-Line seats that come with some other Audi Sport Packages.

Admittedly, I’ve always been an Audi guy. Over the years we’ve owned seven Audis, ranging from the fun to drive yet practical A3 to the vaunted RS4 muscle car. I’ve loved them all. I’ve loved them for their overall feel, comfort, sportiness, heritage, and emotion. And for a period, years ago, they weren’t everywhere on the road.

Styling, attraction, curb appeal. performance, quietness, opulence, quick

I can’t really comment here. I am a home mechanic so I do most repairs myself and pay wholesale for parts so save a ton of money there, but if i had to go to the garage all the time it would be very expensive.

Review by Alex Kramer | Photographs by Derek Mau


  • Versatile supercharged engine w/direct injection delivers performance and efficiency
  • Excellent balance between handling and ride quality
  • Quattro all-wheel drive provides unflappable traction
  • Top notch interior materials
  • Good overall value in its class


  • Multi Media Interface controls are awkwardly placed
  • Rear seating could use a bit more room
  • Exterior styling is still a bit conservative
