The Audi A6 rolled off the line for the first time in 1994 intended for the 1995 model year. It was preceded by the Audi 100 but when the 100 was restyled, Audi changed the name to fit in with the brand's new scheme of naming their models alphanumerically. The major differences between the 100 and the first-generation A6 were mostly superficial. New headlights and taillights, as well as the revised front-end grille, were showcased on the exterior. Engine options range included a 1.8L 20-valve four-cylinder, a 2.8L 30-valve V6, and a 2.3L inline five-cylinder. A Turbocharged Direct Injection inline four-cylinder diesel engine was also made available. And as with most models under the banner, the A6 was offered in both front-wheel drive and with Audi's vaunted Quattro all-wheel drive system.
The second generation of the A6 premiered in 1997. Constructed on the Volkswagen's C5 platform, the A6 was now outfitted with a fresh variety of engines and thrown into direct competition with other European luxury powerhouses such as BMW and Mercedes. The exterior received a slight makeover, including a more aerodynamic fastback styling. Power was supplied by an increased number of engine configurations, but a 2.4L 30-valve V6 and a 2.8L version were the main choices. During this series, Audi's five-speed tiptronic automatic transmission became offered in the A6 for the first time alongside the usual five-speed manual gearbox. The Audi A6 also welcomed in a V8 variant, which displayed revised exterior parts, including flared out fenders, a different grille, larger wheels, larger brakes, and standard Quattro all-wheel drive. An additional redesign came in 2002 for the rest of the A6 models and featured new engine options, a revised front-end (both grille and headlights), and other minor exterior details and underhood parts.
Released in 2004, the third generation of the Audi A6 is a stiff competitor inside the midsize luxury segment. Available as both a sedan and wagon (the Avant), the A6 can be had in three different trims: base 3.2, 3.0T, and 4.2 (the Avant is available as a 3.0T only). Engine options range from a 255 horsepower V6, a 350 horsepower V8, and a supercharged 300 horsepower V6. The interior is of course upscale, and shows off plenty of standard luxury accessories such as heated leather seats, power seats, power windows, and power locks. Extras like voice-activated GPS navigation and Bluetooth are offered as well. Since its inception, the Audi A6 has received a substantial amount of recognition throughout the industry. It has been nominated to Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best List numerous times as well as named to the Intellichoice Lowest Cost Maintenance List (2005).
The A6 promises comfort and class to each driver fortunate enough to call this model their own. A smoothly flowing vehicle, the Audi A6 unleashes smooth performance and all-wheel-drive along with keeping up its luxury image. Deluxe interior artistry coupled with user-friendly controls enable this model to stand alone when it comes to the complete balance refined automobiles must have. Audi doesn't skimp on the details, and that is what makes the A6 ever more intriguing.
