2015 Audi S6

What's new for 2015? For the 2015 Audi S6, the standard xenon headlights have been replaced with LEDs, and the previously optional head-up display is now standard as well.

Whether you're being forced out of a sports car by a growing family or just trying to impress the valets at your favorite hot spot, a midsize luxury sport sedan is a great place to start. And if you'd like one with a bit more excitement than the norm, the 2015 Audi S6 is an even better place to start.

Based on the less powerful Audi A6, the S6 is a four-door luxury sedan that really delivers on the promise of driving fun. Equipped with a turbocharged V8, all-wheel drive and an adjustable air suspension, the S6 is powerful, comfortable and thrilling all at once. Many of the A6's options are standard on the S6, and the interior is similar, too -- a welcome carry-over. Materials and layout are excellent, and the seats are sure to soothe you on long road trips just as easily as they'll keep you planted on a back-road sprint. But the Audi is arguably the most rewarding to drive, and it's certainly one of the best to live with on a daily basis. If you're looking for a sedan that's lush, well-equipped, seriously fast and seriously fun from behind the wheel, the 2015 Audi S6 belongs at the top of your list.

Inside you'll find a head-up display, a driver information center with a 7-inch display between the gauges, Drive Select (providing adjustable settings for steering, suspension and transmission calibrations), diamond-stitched leather upholstery, eight-way power heated front sport seats (with four-way power lumbar), a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, driver memory settings, four-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Audi's MMI system with console-mounted controls and a central 8-inch display, a navigation system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, Audi Connect (including enhanced Web-based navigation and information services plus mobile WiFi capability) and a 14-speaker Bose audio system with a CD player, HD radio, satellite radio and iPod connectivity.

Most options for the S6 are organized into packages. The Driver Assistance package adds adaptive cruise control (with stop-and-go functionality), lane-departure warning/keeping, a 360-degree parking camera system and the Audi Pre-Sense Plus collision mitigation system. The Individual Contour Seating package features multicontour front seats with ventilation and massaging functions, front passenger memory settings, comfort rear seats and leather upholstery sans diamond stitching. The Cold Weather package adds heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel. Finally, the Black Optic package tacks on exclusive 20-inch wheels, body-color exterior mirrors (instead of the standard silver ones), a blacked-out grille and gloss-black window surrounds.

Stand-alone options include 20-inch wheels, a simulated-suede headliner, night vision assist, rear side airbags and a 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.

Handsome dashboard layout, top-notch materials quality, solid fit and finish, MMI infotainment, Audi Connect, mobile WiFi, multicontour comfort seats

Just a few minutes behind the wheel of a 2015 S6 should convince you that this is one of the nicest interiors around. Highlights include a handsome dashboard layout, top-notch materials quality and solid fit and finish. The standard MMI controls entertainment, communication and navigation functions via a dash-mounted pop-up screen and a knob and buttons on the center console. The system boasts logical menus, crisp graphics and a touchpad to increase functionality.

The S6 also features the Audi Connect telematics suite, which includes in-car WiFi, Google Earth data for the navigation system and simplified Google search functionality for points of interest. The mobile WiFi proves very handy if you need to get some work done on the road and there's no Internet café to be found. The Google Earth feature is a mixed bag, however, as it's a bit harder to understand at a glance than a conventional map. Whether you keep the standard sport seats or opt for the multicontour comfort seats, you'll enjoy excellent support during long trips and spirited back-road runs alike. The S6's trunk has 14.1-cubic-feet of cargo space, and it has a useful rear seatback that folds down in a 60/40 split and offers a pass-through feature.

Standard safety equipment on the 2015 Audi S6 includes antilock disc brakes, stability control, a blind-spot warning system, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, front seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and front knee airbags.
