According to Consumer Reports, the 2014 Audi A6 came in second out of 14 for “Best Luxury Large Cars.” The ranking is based on different reviews that have been published, test drives, reliability, and safety data. Experts agree that the vehicle offers one of the best driving experiences around. What makes the 2014 Audi A6, available at Audi of Tucson, so luxurious? Well, there are plenty of different unique traits of this vehicle.

First of all, the simple sound of the vehicle starting up is a thrilling experience itself that is felt from the accelerator pedal to the driver’s seat. As the 2.0L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder roars to life, it’s not hard to imagine the A6 sprinting from 0-60mph in a respectable six seconds. Bump the motor up to the 3.0L Supercharged V6, and that time is reduced to 5.5 seconds. And lest you forget, the A6 also comes with the TDI Clean Diesel Turbo V6, which boasts 240 hp and makes the 0-60mph sprint in 5.2 seconds.

With three trim lines and three engines, it all comes down to a matter of choice: Do you want fast with good fuel economy? Try the A6 Premier with the TDI diesel engine. Happy with just the base model? The A6 Premium with the 2.0L engine has your name on it. Want all the luxury, goodies and speed you can handle? Choose the A6 Prestige model, with either the TDI diesel or the supercharged V6. Either way, you win.

All of the model variations of the A6 at Audi of Tucson offer a lux experience on the inside as well as under the hood. The interior has been said to be, “one of the best interiors in the class, with top-notch build quality, first-rate materials and overall a beautiful design.” And with seating surfaces clad in buttery-smooth leather, who would argue? The front seats feature power 12-way adjustment and are heated and ventilated. Luxurious decorative inlays in Dark Brown Walnut, Fine Grain Ash Natural Brown, Layered Oak or Brushed Aluminum enclose the cabin around you. And the sunroof above your head lets the sun shine in on those days when you want some fresh air. Too bright outside? Chip in for the optional manual rear-side window and power rear window sunshades to keep your passengers happy in the back seat.

The center console is a tech-lovers dream. The A6 features the Audi MMI Navigation plus system and even recognizes your handwriting on the top of the pressure-sensitive turn knob. A 7″ color screen displays information, and from this command center the driver or passenger can control the Bose Surround Sound System, Bluetooth wireless capabilities, the HD radio, and climate control. The Parking System Plus with rear view camera and Audi Drive Select, which allows the driver to select settings for steering effort, throttle response and transmission shift characteristics also are controlled via this command center.

The cavernous trunk of the A6 is large enough to fit luggage for the whole family, or a bicycle. The passenger compartment has ample room for everyone as well, with 41.3 inches of leg room for those in the front seats and 37.4 inches of leg room in the back. Ten available airbags tent the passenger cabin, and along with safety technology such as Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Brakes and aluminum hybrid construction, the Audi A6 has earned the maximum 5-star rating for frontal, side, rollover and overall crash safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

It’s not difficult to see why the Audi A6 is a favorite among critics and drivers. The A6 is graced with the appearance of elegance, security, and relaxation, all bundled into an incredible package. Stop by Audi of Tucson today to test drive your favorite A6 model.
