2012 Audi A6
2012 Audi A6
The new A6 finally receives Audi's revised powertrain layout -- first seen in the A5 -- which sees the engine placed slightly rearward. The engine is still located completely ahead of the front-wheel center line, but a switch to a 40/60 rear-biased all-wheel-drive system bestows the A6 with handling that belies its front-heavy layout. Partly constructed of aluminum, the new A6 weighs about 80 fewer pounds than its predecessor and its aerodynamics have been improved, contributing to the car's impressive fuel economy numbers. A three-inch wheelbase stretch shortens the A6's overhangs, and a substantial 2.9-inch increase in width improves not only the car's stance but also its interior room. And the interior is where the A6 really impresses -- with its beautifully designed and executed shapes, as well as whizbang gadgetry. The navigation system can fuse Google Earth images into the maps it displays, a mobile internet hot spot for up to eight devices can be set up, and the MMI system uses a touch pad on the center console that can read your handwriting. The A6 is available with a head-up display and numerous active safety systems, including lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, blind-spot warning, active cruise control, and Audi Pre-Sense Plus, which activates protective measures if it detects an imminent collision. Given the A6's prodigious speed potential (the V-6 can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds), safety technologies are welcome.
2012 Audi A6 Front Right Side View
Audi has a real winner on its hands in the 2012 A6. The car looks great inside and out, and it drives very well to boot. Audi used to be an also-ran in this segment, and now it sits at the top of the luxury mid-size sedan class. BMW has lost the intimate connection between car and driver in the current 5-series, and Mercedes doesn't offer nearly as nice of a cabin in the E-class as Audi does in the A6.
2012 Audi A6 L E Tron Concept Front Three Quarter Live
Audi is looking to the future in China – and not just with its sales: this week at the Beijing auto show, it pulled the wraps off of its newest plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the A6 L e-tron Concept.
Audi RS6 Avant Spy Photo
We previously spotted the next Audi RS4 Avant being put through its paces on the Nürburgring, and now our colleagues at Motor Trend have snapped pictures of Audi testing another go-fast wagon in Sweden. The car seen here is the next RS6 Avant, an identity betrayed by the giant brakes, flared-out fenders, and subtle aerodynamic add-ons of this partially camouflaged tester. The new RS6 should offer at least 500 hp -- probably close to 550 hp -- from the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 found in the regular Audi S6, S7, and S8. (Versions of that engine already produce 520 hp in the Audi S8 and 500 hp in the Bentley Continental GT.) The previous-generation RS6 Avant conjured 580 hp and 479 lb-ft from a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V-10. Other upgrades for the new Audi are likely to include grippy carbon-ceramic brakes, and weight-saving carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) for components like the fenders or spoilers. The RS6 will almost certainly retain the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and Quattro all-wheel-drive layout seen in the little-brother S6. Audi doesn’t sell an Avant version of the A6/S6 on our shores, but it’s possible the hot car could be sold here as a sedan – or, if the shoe fits, a variant of the A7 hatchback. At this point, we haven’t heard any confirmation that the RS4 or RS6 are destined for sale in the U.S., so these go-fast Audis could be relegated to the realm of foreign fantasy.

2012 Audi A6 Moby Dick Ad
The 2012 Audi A6 comes standard with a Quattro all-wheel drive system that can fight through inclement weather, be it snow, mud, or rain. It can also win battles against Ahab, a pesky tow truck driver who is featured in the following ad and is constantly trying to hunt down a white Audi A6.
2012 Audi A6 Allroad Front Three Quarter In Motion
Now that the A4 allroad has had its chance to shine, Audi is pulling the wraps off the new A6 allroad, which is based off the Europe-only A6 Avant wagon. Audi sold the first-gen A6 allroad in the States back in the early 2000s, but the following second-gen model never made it here. Though we won’t see this new third-gen model on our shores either, we will be getting the smaller A4 allroad later this year.
