2007 Audi A6 Review
This review was written when the 2007 Audi A6 was new.
The A6 competes effectively in the luxury sedan class with a premium interior fit and finish, confident and smooth performance, and plenty of space for families and cargo. The A6 also comes in a wagon trim and the high-powered S6 version. If you're in the market for a luxury large sedan, you should also consider the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and Lexus GS.
The 2007 Audi A6, Audi's mid-sized sedan, is praised for its solid performance, elegant and class-leading interior cabin, striking exterior and authoritative pull on the road. It may be an ideal luxury large sedan for the driver who wants sport dynamics with all-wheel drive and taut handling, without sacrificing space to cart the kids and lots of cargo. With a sleek exterior, the A6 demands attention, gliding through lane changes and passing its competitors. U.S. News reviewer Rick Newman affirms that the 2007 A6 is "hot, long, lean and lithe... one of the most handsome cars on the road." Auto writers from Edmunds claim that its "solid performance, an elegant cabin and reasonable pricing make the A6 a worthy competitor in the luxury sedan and wagon class."
The 2007 Audi A6 is a steeply priced luxury sedan, auto reviewers agree. But for that cost, buyers are rewarded with excellent handling and exemplary fit and finish. The A6 is priced lower than several competitors in the luxury sedan class, such as the Mercedes E-Class and BMW 5-Series, making it a worthy choice for luxury value. Reviewers add that, options, individual or package, can inflate the base price of the 2007 Audi A6 considerably. "A loaded V8 model can easily top $65,000," says Kelley Blue Book, "leaving the A6 in a slightly better position than a loaded Mercedes-Benz E550, but more pricey than a similarly-equipped Lexus GS 430." Cars.com states that if you have $40,000 plus to spend on a luxury sedan, the A6 is "an appealing alternative to more expensive offerings from BMW and Mercedes-Benz," because of its "incredibly detailed cabin, a choice of two strong engines and good crash-test scores."
IntelliChoice gives the base model A6 a top rating of "excellent" for its predicted five-year cost of ownership compared to other vehicles in its class.
