If they are forced out of a sports car with a growing family, or trying to impress valets in their favourite places, midsize sports luxury sedan is a great place to start. And if like one with a little more emotion that the standard, 2015 Audi S6 is a better place to start. Based in the less powerful Audi A6, S6 is a sedan of four doors of luxury that really fulfills the promise of pleasure of driving. Equipped with a V8 Turbo, four-wheel-drive wheels and powerful, adjustable air suspension, comfortable and charming stressful at the same time. Wide range of standard A6 S6 and similar interior, too – a welcome transition. Materials and an excellent design and seats are sure to calm him down as easily as we will keep you on the road of sprint on long journeys.
Depending on where you look, there is a rapid means available super luxury sedan, some of which even cost a little less. S6 compete directly with these classes, the old King 5 series BMW 550i 2015, garrison has a V8 is more powerful than the Audi, but it does not feel so strong around the curves. 2015 jaguar XF 5.0 supercharged is another option for buyers of fans, but inside the Jaguar may seem a little outdated in comparison. Mercedes Benz E550 is also available by 2015 and 2015 Cadillac CTS V, offering enormous power and a personality too. But I could say that the most valuable Audi to drive and this is without a doubt one of the best to live each day. If you’re looking for a sedan, full, honest, fast and fun behind the wheel of the Audi S6, 2015 belongs at the top of the list.
Sport Medium Sedan
2015 Audi S6 is a super sport medium sedan comes in a full-level adjustment.

More options for the S6, organized in packages. Driver assistance package added (with a stop-and-go functionality) adaptive cruise control, lane-departure, a system camera 360 degrees and the mitigation Plus system, alert the Audi pre sense collision. Person packages outline multicontour characteristic of the front seats of the seat with the functions of ventilation and massage, memory configuration of the companion, the comfort of the rear seats and leather upholstery, not diamond points. Cold package adds heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel. Finally, black optic Pack tacks on an exclusive 20-inch wheels, mirrors of color body (rather than the standard silver), blackened Grill and gloss black window surrounds.

S6-traction is feeds by pumping a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 420 horses of force and 406 lb-ft of torque. The transmission is a manual automated of seven speeds (Audi S tronic) that works on set with the system’s drive all-wheel. According to Audi S6, accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. But that’s not all: the S6 also win the rating of 20 mpg combined (City/Highway 17.27) EPA fuel economy. It is a combination of power and efficiency, especially for all-wheel-drive V-8 sedans.
Standard safety equipment until 2015 Audi S6 include brakes antilock, stability control, blind spot, front and rear parking alert system sensors, cameras, side glass front airbags, side airbags and knee airbags. Rear side airbags and warning systems kept the second round are optional, as Audi collision mitigation system pre sense Plus, which warns the driver and automatically activates the brake and adjust the front seat for maximum protection, if the accident is seen immediately.

Independent insurance for Highway Safety Institute gives it A6 a similar rating of ‘good’ in proof of greater frontal offset, side impact and rollover roof strength moderate-. Headrest of the wheelchair project a6 also rated “good” for protection against whiplash in rear impacts.
Behind The Wheel
A few minutes behind the wheel 2015 S6 must be convinced that this is one of the best interiors around. Highlights include the design of the instrument panel, solid and beautiful taking quality of materials and finish setting. Control standard MMI navigation, communication and entertainment functions through a screen pop-up and panel buttons and the button on the central console. Logic of menu systems offer graphics, crisp and the touchpad to enhance functionality, although still prefer iDrive BMW or Mercedes COMAND for ease of use. Audi S6 telematics suite also has Connect, which includes Wi-Fi in the car, the data of Google Earth for the navigation system and simplifies Google search functionality to pull. Cellular WiFi prove very useful if you need to do some work on the road and there is an Cafe Internet are not. Features of Google Earth is a group heterogeneous, however, because is a little more difficult of understanding to simple view that a map conventional.
You keep a seats of the sport standard or choose the comfort of the seat of the multicontour, will enjoy of excellent support during the journey was long and spirited back-road works the same. About shaft S6, 14.1 cubic feet volume was slightly below the average for this segment, but it has useful rear backrest folds to down in a 60/40 split and has pass-through. Although a turbo V8 420 HP seems to be much, really put the S6 sedan a more conventional equivalents such as the BMW 550i sedan falls short, super crazy as the M5 and the Mercedes-Benz E63. But not us evil-S6 still surprisingly fast cars and repair of the machine about as gets. The same applies to the automated manual transmission, the same content is perfectly suited started rev reductions or simply scroll through the city.
Front of this beautiful region approach to handling, a sports car with quick and tenacious grip, but expected a standard air suspension grown on all surfaces. There are cars that do certain things a charm more, but very few can match this Audi versatile excellence.
Not the idea of pulling large luxury sedan, there are basically no choice but to 2015 updated Audi S6. But what the enemies of Germany the S6 and the United Kingdom not? First, Audi S6 is positioned in price and original equipment. However not distinctive RS6 – that it is only available in the bodystyle of Avant (train) – offers plenty of performance for adult fans in search of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Powered by a 4.0 liter biturbo V8, Audi S6 updated get 309kW collision force 331kW (550 nm of torque), which helps to get from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds, beating the previous time of 0.2 seconds.
Taking in features that weighs less than 1900 kg, their figures of performance are very impressive, but largely irrelevant, taking in has the State of the police of Australia, but a good conversation if is necessary. If you need more fodder, point out that it is essential (with some hardware changes) the same engine, Audi RS6 is significantly more expensive, but in different state of tune. As it is the case of update of half life of Audi, external changes are essentially undetectable. But if you squint, you will find that front and rear have been very small adjustments with the sharp (now with matrix LED) lights and dynamic signals (growing from the inside out, rather than intermittent) for rear LED. But do not expect to be able to say of its predecessor, with a Minha15 look.
Changes to the Interior, however, is a little clearer. The main screen is the incorporation of information by driver 7 inch that fits perfectly between the speedometer and the tachometer. While not as futuristic as it has just launched digital device complete in the Audi TT, was a valuable addition if your navigation system gets a regular workout. System of information and base of entertainment’s computer also has been revised, with much more fast processing of numbers. The inside real yes same was probably the point culminating of the S6. Although they can begin to show their age a bit, it has a very charming and luxury at both ends. In addition, the S6, as A6, offers a lot of front of the room and part rear, easy accompanies to four adults, with a capacity of 530 litres space of boot it enough to the family of gears.
Audi S6 offered previously in quantities limited, together with the brother S7, a made that will change with the S6 and S7 updated in second place is developed in a model regular in the Audi Australia when that happens the sale in March and April next year along with the usual 2015 Audi A6. As cars replaced the new S6, Audi will produce about $170,000 (total price is not yet confirmed by Audi Australia) but bringing more tools and resources. We fly to Dresden, in the former Germany East to drive the Audi S6, mainly in traffic when he arrived, but with little opportunity to test the dynamics. First, it must be said that the Audi A6 Quattro models, especially diesel 3.0 litre biturbo with 650Nm of torque and 235kW (0 – 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds) fast enough for many of our roads – and more efficient. But if the diesel not is yours and the children have that go to the school small a little more fast, so the admission of the S6 in the car (unless you can pay a supercar of death additional $55,000 RS6).
S6 of the energy is translated in the Street through 1 transmission of double clutch of 7 speeds, a gear that the fires after another without doubt it. -When you are going, but is stuck in low-speed traffic, as we do and can sometimes uneven reductions with a look of crunches (especially when gearshift joins manually via steering wheel paddles). In the S6 standard equipment includes air suspension Audi (characteristics we recommend on a regular model A6 as well) which allows the car to low 20 mm when the dynamic mode. To the delight of buyers from Australia, S6-perfect rides by the poor quality of the road in comfort mode, but it can be a little too strong, when you select the quick exit. Speaking dynamically, the feel of the wheel more boring (received in the A6 but not in S6 sport) Gets a bit heavier when involved, but still a bit disappointing through curves with a basically there are place of death and regeneration is seen in the Center. We also find the steering wheel if a tad too thin given the nature of the vehicle.
But it all becomes meaningless as S6 occupies almost the entire surface as a tank of Germany-although very quickly. Throw it in a corner and Audi Quattro system will take over and do the work for you. Despite our efforts to shake up to mid or corner of a babyfon, wrong use, even if tires (255/35/R20 Potenza) much crying at all during the process. After a while becomes a game of point and shoot, the laws of physics. The Audi S6 is a big car and not much fun around the winding road and God forgive me, never met on the track. Therefore, it is more convenient for people who want the power and perhaps advanced V8 to an entire people or the people who support the winding career Grand Touring. It could be argued that S6 is really a party for E500 and the 535i, but considering a sporty look and performance, some $170,000 really can be considered a reasonable compromise for more powerful (and considerably more expensive) BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S.
Despite two rivals Germany faster (0 – 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds for both), it is largely irrelevant in our market and S6 looks the part between these rivals racing – without having to use the RS badge. It would be nice if the Audi Australia offers S6 wagon in style, whereas it would be fans of family vehicle that is perfect for those who cannot justify the price of the RS6. Unfortunately, this is the best Audi sedan crowd and while it is not possible as recently as 5 series or they count as equivalent to the class and Mercedes, single point of sale remains the perfect performance, thanks not in small measure a Quattro drive system, a feature that is unmatched by its competitors. Blink and miss you: there is some work on exterior facelift, but it is mainly limited to appear more than LED – lights and some bits of extra chrome on the bumpers and grills little innovations. As before, you can choose between the room and the body of Avant (property).
Yes. A little more interesting, there is an increase in the force. S6 is not anemic before, but Audi engineers were given with the 4.0 liter V8 twin – turbo a shot in the arm to the tune of 30bhp. This means total 444bhp, which, along with 406 lb ft of torque, enough to carry the S6 near enough mass of 2 tons of 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds, an improvement of two-tenths. The improvement also in the future of the economy, if client S6 to worry about things like that. Fuel consumption was of 18.3 19.1 mpg while the CO2 output is low at 5% of 214 g/km. The interior equipment is Swish as you put in S6, then upgrade kit with a facelift in different temperature – turning the climate control now four areas, with higher property of sound attenuation of ‘acoustic’ glass of the window glass and the future. MMI multimedia interface was also improved graphics, splitting between pulled the screen mounted on the Board and digital display sharply between instruments. It was not quite the full cinema effect new home Audi TT, but it is an interesting and useful.
Quick. Not ridiculously, mind-alteringly quickly as the RS6 (yes same soon will undergo a similar attack tweakery lights) but enough to give your accelerator’s neck muscles exercise enough. Addictive, acceleration does not feel the tail as it builds speed; S6 continued attracting a large aircraft as the landing. Our test car had a soundtrack of deliciously over-the-top as sound effects and excess was equipped with the optional sports exhaust, that repertoire of entertainment of sick of hoarse voice features. We also did a version of Avant without exhaust and parts of animals that is almost as silent in comparison. Is soft, vaguely woofly note perfect when you just want to be normal drive S6–something that is very good, but the subtleties aside, want more volume to impress your partner.
The quality of the standard Adaptive tuning of the air ride suspension Audi S6 really soft. This can be corrected by playing with individual adjustment mode, a bit of a faff why should investigate S6 menu and submenu to make it. The S tronic gearbox well gel seven-speed double clutch with the rest of the transmission, with changes in the soft butter and effective use of manual mode (not plastic, metal fortunately) paddles behind the steering wheel. In the corners are slow and medium speed S6 simply cannot hide-there is a lot of inertia, but worked so adherent and effective as you would expect all-wheel-drive Audi supersaloon. As it was to be expected, of course, is not the majority in the world involving the car to go, but as instruments of dull a bit for the Club challenging the way (and in defiance of the time) in his presentation, is still a lot of fun. Audi S6 keep a very nice car. Quality interior is very impressive and an engine very special. In fact, not is it strong handling, but you already knew that.
