The Audi A6 offers two powertrain configurations and three trim levels, which result in a total of five different trims. The '45' models all share a 261-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and the '55' models have a 335-hp 3.0-liter V6.
The cheapest trim is Premium and the next one up is Premium Plus; they're both available with either engine. The most expensive Prestige trim is only available with the V6. Standard exterior equipment on the base trim includes automatic LED headlights and taillights, 19-inch alloy wheels, and a power panoramic sunroof. It also comes with push-button start, heated front seats, leather trim for the seats, the power-tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and the shifter, a leatherette-trimmed dashboard, ambient interior lighting, three-zone climate control, cruise control, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and wood trim inlays. The infotainment system has a 10.1-inch touchscreen and includes SiriusXM, Bluetooth, navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a ten-speaker audio system.
Basic driver assists include automatic high beams, rain-sensing wipers, forward-collision warning with automatic braking, Audi Pre Sense Basic accident preparation, parking sensors front and rear, and lane-departure warning. As you move up, features such as a heated steering wheel, upgraded ambient lighting, four-zone climate control, a head-up display, ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats are added to the tally.
Audi offers just a few additional packages for the A6 lineup and some apply to specific trims only. The Black Optic Sport package is available to all trims, even the 45 TFSI models. It adds a sport suspension, 20-inch five-V-spoke wheels, all-season tires, and blacked-out exterior trim for $1,800.
For the base model, the Convenience Package is priced at $2,300 and adds adaptive cruise assist with lane guidance, Audi phone box with wireless charging and signal booster, Audi side assist with pre sense rear, a heated steering wheel, and a top-view camera system.
On the Premium Plus, the Executive Package is available and equips four-zone climate control, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, multi-color ambient lighting, and a power trunk for $2,250. The Luxury Package is reserved for the Prestige trim and adds Valcona leather upholstery to the mix, as well as heated and ventilated 18-way power-adjustable front seats with massage functions and extra leather trim on the upper instrument panel and center console. This package costs $2,850.
