For those wanting more performance and power, the 2021 S6 is powered by a 2.9L turbocharged V6 making 444 horsepower mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Like all versions of the mid-sized Audi, power is sent to all four wheels.
On the other hand, for those wanting something a bit more utilitarian, the Allroad returns to the A6 lineup for 2021 and is powered by the same 3.0L V6. The Allroad offers about two more inches of ground clearance over the standard A6 while also looking far more rugged thanks to its matte wheel arches. The Allroad A6 offers sophistication with practicality given its spacious cabin and luxury interior.
Audi has concentrated heavily on technology in recent years and one look at the interior of the 2021 Audi A6 proves this effort has paid off. Audi's optional second-generation virtual cockpit replaces the driver's instrument panel with a large 12.3-inch display that allows driver to view the navigation system simply by looking down at their instruments. It sounds simple, but the virtual cockpit vastly improves the driving experience by providing all the information driver's need in one place.
Driver assistance functions available on the A6 are extensive as well and include an adaptive cruise control system that will keep up with traffic in speeds ranging from stopped, all the way up to 95 mph. A top view camera system allows for 360 degree viewing of the area around the A6 making parking dings a thing of the past, while an available intersection assist system monitors cross traffic and should prevent drivers from pulling out into traffic in situations with low visibility.
