Audi updated the A6 for the 2012 model year, adding new engines and cabin technology to keep it up with its latest models. As the A6 and A7 share a platform, expect the two cars to maintain similar update schedules.
Styling updates were minor for the new A6, which retains its sedan body type. Its grille looks more integrated with the front of the car, and the bumper virtually disappears in the fascia.
An eight-speed automatic transmission helps the A6 achieve fuel economy in the mid-20s. The console also holds the dial and touch pad that make up the A6's cabin tech interface, the most innovative in the business.
