    I cannot tell you how uncomfortable it is to drive this daily. This still feels and sounds like a very sophisticated, refined luxury performance car. The acceleration is also much better than the BMW, which suffered from major turbo lag, while this car doesn't delay at all coming off of the line. Audi says the A6 TDI can accelerate mph in a swift 5. The leather used for the seats is beautiful, but grainy enough to feel, especially sliding in and out.

    An Exquisite Mid-size Luxury Sedan. Your feedback has been sent to Cars. Best Car I have owned. I have owned the car for about 4 months 3k miles now and it is the best decision I have made. I was somewhat hesitant about Audi. I am primarily a BMW and Mercedes driver and switch cars about every 3 years.

    However, this car drove and handled better and more importanly for me: Great value for the money and proof that Audi has come a very long way!!!! In , the d was the most fuel efficient car BMW had ever sold in the United States, and it feels insanely powerful.

    The A6 TDI is larger, heavier, adds all-wheel drive, and gets significantly better fuel economy. It's quite miraculous, really. One reviewer complained about the overly harsh ride. Compared to a Lincoln Town Car, maybe. Mine has the optional 20" rotor wheels and sport package, and I am absolutely amazed how smooth and compliant the ride is.

    It is a total comfort cruiser compared to my BMW d. Another reviewer complained of the nose-heaviness. I have found no fault with handling dynamics. And my last daily driver was a very sporty BMW with a nearly perfect front-rear weight distribution and rear wheel drive. Audi has historically been criticized by serious enthusiasts for understeer associated with the more front biased weight distribution as compared to BMW; however, continued tweaking of the quattro all-wheel drive system including rear wheel bias and torque vectoring has brought Audi's handling very much on par with its most direct BMW competitor, the 5 Series.

    I drove a BMW d shortly before purchasing the A6, and I thought the A6 was a noticeably more athletic feeling car. For those who have never driven a modern clean diesel, you really owe it to yourself to try one before opting for the gas engine.

    My total average fuel economy in my fist year of ownership in very mixed driving is over 33 MPG--an incredible feat for a 4, pound all-wheel drive luxury vehicle that sprints from zero to 60 in 5.

    I had a A7 as a loaner for a week, putting more than miles on it and which I reviewed on this site, too. Not only did fuel economy underperform EPA figures while my diesel overperforms , the engine felt less potent in almost all real world driving situations. The rush of torque that pins you to the driver's seat just barely off idle is highly addictive--and conspicuously absent in the gas engine.

    In response to diesel questions that mostly older folks ask me all the time, no objectionable noise, no smell, no cold starting problems, no gelling fuel problems, and no smoke--ever. Yes, the soundtrack is different.

    It is totally imperceptible at speed. At idle and off the line, there is a distinctly different sort of baritone sound and slightly more engine vibration, but not objectionable. This still feels and sounds like a very sophisticated, refined luxury performance car. I carry adult passengers frequently. They will sometimes ask, when they hear and feel the auto engine start-stop at stop lights, if it is a hybrid. No one ever guessed it was a diesel until I told them, "No, even better, it's a clean diesel, offering much better performance, similar fuel economy, super clean emissions, and no chemical cocktail of lithium ion batteries.
