Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Audi S6 stands with an impressive hand: quality interior, great performance, functional shape. It's possible to find better examples from other cars, but they all cost significantly more.

Pros
Underrated V-8
Well-appointed interior
Sharp 7-speed dual-clutch automatic
Nimble attitude

Cons
Overshadowed by S7
Steering is too light, too quick?
Exterior is too conservative
More than two tons, and feels it too

The 2018 Audi S6 is a car that pampers as well as it performs. On the inside, this midsize luxury sport sedan boasts a richly trimmed cabin fitted with front seats that can keep you perfectly comfortable for hours at a time. Or hit the gas and the S6's 450-horsepower turbocharged V8 will rocket this Audi to 60 mph in just 4 seconds flat.

PROS
Turbocharged V8 provides plenty of smooth, easily accessible power
Roomy interior is finished in top-shelf materials

CONS
Doesn't handle as well as some rival sport sedans
