Audi A6 Interior
Reviewers agree that the 2015 Audi A6 has first-rate cabin materials and an exceptionally attractive design. They say the front seats are comfortable and the back seats is quite roomy. Some critics praise the infotainment system’s sharp graphics and intuitive on-screen menus, but many argue that the systems in BMW and Mercedes-Benz vehicles are easier to use.
- "The 2015 Audi A6 interior is an unmatched mix of contemporary design, high-quality materials and impeccable build quality." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "As per Audi tradition, the A6 features a well-finished cabin complete with real metal trim and substantial use of aching beautiful matte-finish wood inlays in certain models." --Left Lane News
- "The 2015 Audi A6 has one of the best cabins in its class, with an attractive dash layout, excellent materials quality and solid fit and finish." -- Edmunds
- "The A6's cabin is a thing of beauty. The materials are exceptional, and practically every button, lever and knob oozes class." -- AutoTrader (2014)
The 2015 Audi A6 seats five and comes standard with leather upholstery and heated, power-adjustable front seats. Available features include ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats. Auto writers say the A6’s front seats are comfortable and offer a wide range of adjustment. They write that the rear seat provides generous headroom and more legroom than most rivals’ rear seat. However, they think the rear seat has a low seat cushion that doesn’t provide enough thigh support for taller passengers.
- "The spacious backseat offers more real-world legroom than most rivals." -- Edmunds
- "We're disappointed in the A6's back seat, though. The bottom cushion is rather low, so passengers with longer legs will notice a shortage of under-thigh support." -- AutoTrader (2014)
- "Tall drivers and passengers benefit from the A6's long seat tracks." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "The comfortable front seats include adjustment for seat-cushion length and four-way movable head restraints. In the rear, even six-foot passengers have adequate headroom under the sloping roof, but the seat cushion is low." -- Automobile Magazine (2012)
Standard features in the 2015 Audi A6 include tri-zone automatic climate control, a sunroof, a 10-speaker audio system, Bluetooth phone connectivity, satellite radio, an iPod interface and Audi’s MMI infotainment system. Available features include four-zone automatic climate control, Bose or Bang & Olufsen audio systems, Bluetooth audio streaming, a backup camera, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and a blind spot monitoring system. A navigation system with Audi Connect is also available. Audi Connect provides a wireless hot spot that can support up to eight Wi-Fi-equipped devices. Audi Connect also enables the navigation system to display Google Earth satellite imagery.
According to some test drivers, the A6 is a great choice for technology buffs thanks to high-tech features like Audi Connect. Automotive journalists say Audi’s MMI system has sharp graphics and straightforward on-screen menus. Nonetheless, many think it isn’t as easy to use as the systems found in BMW and Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
- "The system boasts logical menus and crisp graphics, and the ‘MMI navigation plus’ upgrade (standard on all except the base 2.0T Premium) includes a touchpad that can recognize fingertip scrawls. It's remarkably sophisticated, but we still prefer BMW's iDrive or Mercedes' COMAND for overall ease of use." -- Edmunds
- "The A6 is also the choice in the segment for tech-lovers, offering dedicated Internet access that enables Google-powered maps and location information, and turns the car into a Wi-Fi hot spot for up to eight personal devices." -- Kelley Blue Book (2014)
- "MMI takes much longer to master than other ‘all-in-one’ control interfaces." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "The highly styled and quiet-riding sedan offers so much technology that becoming familiar with all the features takes hours behind the wheel. Thankfully, the improved MMI control makes it easy to navigate most of the options." -- Popular Mechanics (2012)
The 2015 Audi A6 has 14.1 cubic feet of trunk space, which is decent for the class, though some rivals, like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, offer more room. Split-folding rear seats are standard, which can help expand the cargo area. Most reviewers are satisfied with the trunk’s capacity, though some complain about its narrow opening.
- "The A6's 14.1-cubic-foot trunk is slightly below average for the segment, but we've found it generous in real-world testing, and the rear seatbacks both fold and offer a pass-through when more space is needed." -- Edmunds
- "The trunk is roomy by absolute standards, but its usefulness is hurt by a somewhat narrow opening." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
