Ranked by the Drive panel of judges against the very best in the luxury automotive ranks, the Audi A6 impressed across the board
Less than three months after being introduced to the Australian market, the all-new Audi A6 Sedan has been recognised by Drive as its 2020 Drive Large Luxury Car of the Year.
Completely redesigned inside and out and featuring the very latest in terms of drive technology, connectivity and appointment, the A6 Sedan is at the very cutting edge of the Audi luxury range. With its mild hybrid drive and Audi connect plus opening up a whole new range of online services for the first time, it represents a new era of luxury vehicle from the brand renowned for setting the benchmark in that area.
Ranked by the Drive panel of judges against the very best in the luxury automotive ranks, the Audi A6 impressed across the board, described by judges as bringing with it ‘style, performance and technology to boot’.
Indeed the Drive judges were impressed by the A6’s ‘all-round ability, the quality of the cabin and the execution of the styling’ to arrive at a car that is not only comfortable as a luxury conveyance, but one that doesn’t disappoint in terms of its engaging drive and performance potential.
It was the premium feel in all aspects of the A6 that made it the standout amongst the competition this year for the judges.
“The all-new Audi A6 builds on an already strong range of Audi vehicles to deliver an incredible package that is quiet and comfortable to drive, but can turn into an engaging corner-eater at the drop of a hat.
“It’s loaded with the latest technology, including haptic feedback integration and semi-autonomous steering ... standard inclusions such as all-wheel drive and a high level of specification make it the best buy in this segment.”
“We are delighted the all-new A6 Sedan has been recognised for its overall style, sophistication and outstanding value,” said Paul Sansom, Managing Director of Audi Australia.
“This result is testament to the collaboration between our incredible designers and engineers at AUDI AG in Germany and our team here in Australia in making the new Audi A6 such a compelling local offer.
“We are sure our customers will love this amazing executive sedan as much as we do and the judges did.”
