Serving Pembroke Pines, FL

The Audi A6 is a natural choice for luxury-minded car shoppers who value style, technology, and performance. The A6 has been a smart pick for drivers since its original release in 1994, and the most recent models are unbeatable options for any serious car shopper. The 2018 A6 is the last model year for the fourth generation, and the 2019 A6 introduces a new generation. While this generational difference sets the stage for numerous differences between these two sedans, closer inspection reveals that you cannot go wrong regardless of the model year that you select.


Performance capabilities for the 2018 Audi A6 and the new 2019 model are similar. Both model years are available with a turbo 2.0-liter engine mated with a Quattro all-wheel drive, and this powertrain delivers 248 horsepower. The 2018 and 2019 model years also are offered with a 3.0-liter engine that provides 335 horsepower. These two engines in the 2019 model are designed with moderate hybrid technology. Another difference in the 2019 model year is the new option of a V6, 3.0-liter engine with direct fuel injection. The two transmission options available for the 2019 A6 are a 7-speed S-Tronic variable transmission and a Tiptronic 8-speed automatic transmission.


The 2019 Audi A6 appears almost identical to the 2018 model year at first glance. It carries the same appealing profile and dimensions. However, closer inspection indicates that most exterior surfaces of the 2019 Audi A6 have been updated. This includes a sharper look to the lower fascia, taillights and dual exhaust pipes. The rear of the 2019 A6 has a metal strip that runs between the taillights. These taillights have a dynamic, embedded feature that adds flair when you tap on the brakes. The front design includes a new look for the grille, headlights, and bumper. Sculpting throughout the hood and side panels is also more defined in the 2019 Audi A6.


The 2018 Audi A6 is well-appointed and has a sophisticated, contemporary look that many drivers love. The 2019 A6 includes a few technological updates, and these new features change some aspects of the interior design. Notably, the 2018 A6 infotainment system screen cropped up out of the dashboard and sat on HVAC vents. In the 2019 A6, the screen is embedded in the dash below the air vents. The 2019 Audi A6 also has a bigger steering wheel and a new virtual cockpit system. Equipment that is included in both model years provides cruise control, smartphone integration, memory functions for the front seats, heated and power-adjusting seats, ambient lighting, an advanced sound system, assistive safety features and more.
