MSRP 63315 GBPNEX score 93%

Product Overview

Audi S6 is the high performance variant of the A6. In the fifth generation, the S6 comes in both sedan and wagon (Avant) forms. Unlike its predecessor, which had a V8 bi-turbo powerplant, the new S6s have downsized engines. In Europe, it is powered by a 3.0L TDI V6, while outside Europe a 2.9L bi-turbo V6 takes its place.

Sentiment Score 93%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
Audi is killing it with interior design, and the fine leather, open-pore wood and aluminum trim all work together to create a cabin that's both modern and ultra-premium. There's a ton of tech on offer, too, as evidenced by not one, not two, but three different screens. The base S6 Premium Plus can be had with a $2,250 Driver Assistance package.
