2017 Audi S6 Sedan Drive Review

2017 Audi S6 Sedan Drive Review
- Audi’s S6 is around since the 2012 model year, is getting hotter and more powerful now, standard with Quattro, Audi’s all-wheel-drive system, twin-turbocharged V-8, visual telltales include trim-specific wheels, aluminum mirror caps, quad exhaust outlets, and a tiny S6 badge in the grille

- tweaked the headlights, a more curved shape, 450 horsepower, 406 lb-ft, sub-4.0-second runs to 60 mph

- comfortable suspension, quiet cabin

- dated MMI infotainment system, dashboard’s minimalist style and high-quality materials

- exterior styling is understated and handsome

- Audi S6 with paucity of upgrades compare to the Mercedes-AMG E43 and the new BMW M550i

- performance is fairly easy though the S6 requires little effort to drive fast
