Review 

The regular 2021 Audi S6 is a luxury and one of the best midsize-performance cars on the market today. The S6’s sleeper style covers its high-performance capabilities, despite its muted appearance compared to its high-performance rivals. Audi may believe it produces enough fast SUVs (there’s the RS Q8, after all), so a wagon is unnecessary. There are currently no plans to offer a RS 6 sedan in the United States. That’s great for us because the Avant combines practicality with high performance.

Its twin-turbo V-6 engine promises to enhance the A6’s already capable powertrain, lowering 0-60 acceleration to the mid-4-second range. This engine develops 444 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque transmitted to Audi’s Quattro AWD system via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The EPA rates the vehicle’s fuel economy at 18/28 mpg city/highway.

The S6 has plenty of luxury and technology features, much like the everyday car. The dual-display infotainment system and digital gauge display on the Audi provides a modern touch. The driver-assist systems, on the other hand, were a tad cumbersome at times. Regardless, the materials and quality are among the best in the industry. After a long break the RS 6, which Audi has brought back to the United States, is even more powerful and elevated than the S6.

Should I Buy a 2021 Audi S6?

Yes, you should consider if you want to spend an impressive and stunning vehicle. For around $75,000, the S6 with base Premium Plus trim is quite lovely. However, for a vehicle of this stature, it appears to be worthwhile to go all out. The Prestige level, which costs around $82,000, includes high-tech features, including a head-up display and adaptive cruise control.¬†Extended interior leather detailing and heated rear seats are added to the luxury. Interior ambient lighting is a bit of a novelty, but it’s still cool. Although the Prestige trim has little effect on the S6’s performance, it does contribute to the car’s modern, dignified look.
