Overview

The 2011 Audi A6 is a luxury car that's available as a sedan or as a 5-door wagon known as the Avant, with a choice of three engines, three trim levels, and a host of luxury options. The A6 received an extensive upgrading and general makeover for 2011. Some safety features have been added to the upper trims, and a navigation system is standard across the board.

The trim levels for the 2011 Audi A6 are Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. The first two are designated 3.2 or 3.0T, depending on the engine used. The Prestige trim can be designated 3.0T or 4.2, again depending on engine type, with the 4.2 available only as a sedan. Standard features on all trim levels include 17-inch alloy wheels, power sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, satellite radio, voice-activated navigation system, and Bluetooth connectivity. The upper trims build on this base, and many packaged and stand-alone options are available.

The 2011 Audi A6 3.2 features a 265-horsepower, 3.2-liter V-6 engine, with front-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission, which is functionally similar to an automatic transmission. It delivers 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The 3.0T sedan or Avant employs a supercharged, 300-horsepower, 3.0-liter V-6 engine that delivers 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The A6 4.2 comes with a 350-horsepower, 4.2-liter V-8 engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. This powertrain delivers 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Audi A6 include anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, front side air bags, and side curtain air bags. Rear parking sensors are added as standard on the Premium Plus trim, and a rearview camera is standard on the Prestige trim. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rated the A6 "Good"-the Institute's highest rating-for frontal-offset and side-impact protection.

Starting MSRPs for the 2011 Audi A6, in its various configurations, ranged from $45,200 to $59,150.
