Audi S6 Overview
Positioned between the outright sporty 'RS' range and the regular versions, the S6 is one such vehicle that would offer adequate power without the bone-jarring ride quality or the impracticality sports cars offer.??This is to the A6 line up what the Audi S4 is to the Audi A4 model range. Slightly sporty on the outside, much about the same on the inside, but with a good number of changes done in the mechanicals, the S6 is surely a very special piece of kit.
Much like the RS4, the RS6 is also not available in India, which means that if you want a sporty version of the Audi A6, the Audi S6 is the only option out there. But that's not a negative thing!
Audi S6 Exterior
?The front, like the A6, is mean-looking. From the sides, it sits close to the ground and that gives it a sporting appearance. The rear is akin to the A6. It does look sporty, keeping a balance between the classy A6 and the sportiness of the RS6, the latter isn't yet available in india though.
Audi S6 Interior
Regular features are carried over from the A6, but there are a few changes. The trim on the dashboard, for instance, isn't wood as found on the A6. Also, like the A6, the car's in no way short on space and comfort. The fit and finish, and the overall feel is very Audi.
Audi S6 Engine & Transmission
The 3.0TDI, the presence of S6 makes sense for those who want a powerful A6 but don't want to spend on something like the BMW M5 or the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG.??This might not help it compete against the out and out supersaloons but Audi offers a more usable car in the form of the S6. And 400+ PS of power is more than what two generations old sports cars were making. Keeping that in mind, this is quite a powerful offering.

Audi S6 Braking and Safety
On the safety front, the vehicle gets 6 airbags along with all the driver aids including ABS, EBD, Traction Control, ESP etc. Given that you won't be heading trackside everyday, and the all the systems will be turned on, the S6 will prove to be a great tourer. You can achieve good speed without too much of unnecessary drama.
Audi S6 Performance and Handling
What do we think about Audi S6?
But while the Audi S6 looks like a great car, with an ex-showroom price tag of about Rs 87lakhs, it doesn't offer the exclusivity or the performance the super saloons have. Although the S6 does offer a better ride and comfort than them, the price looks a bit high. ??Having said that, if you are in for a sporty version of the Audi A6, there's nothing else in the market other than the S6. Even the competition doesn't over a direct rival to the car. It's an accomplished car, and while it lacks the exclusivity of more premium offerings, the S6 (like the S4) offers the best of both worlds.
Audi S6 Competitors
BMW 530d can prove to be a great competition if you are looking for a rear-wheel-drive diesel sedan.
