Review
The C8 iteration of the A6 is a seriously underrated car that lives and breathes luxury in the purest sense of the word. It is a visionary piece of art that champions progressive attitudes, capturing the spirit of technology, craftsmanship and thoughtful design the Audi brand is synonymous for. The sculpted body and subtle lines elude a timeless elegance; The cockpit is decidedly futuristic with many elements from the original Prologue Concept being present. But mechanically, the local variant of the A6 is far from perfect. The prohibitively expensive import taxes have pushed PA to cut costs in a few areas to bring its OMV down and cushion PA's margins. What we consumers are left with is something that is very much like a concept car in spirit. There is so much potential to achieve more, yet these promises are just thatâ€"promises. The car entices you with glimpses of what it could be but falls short in the execution of minor details. Overall, it is still a great car, and I have no regrets in choosing it over the dated 5-series or the obnoxious E-class.

What I like
1. The cabin is wonderfully silent and the engine chugs along quietly without any drama. Along the ECP, the ride can is refined to the point that you would be forgiven for thinking you were driving an electric car. When the auto start/stop kicks in, you barely notice the sound of the engine resuming, which is testament to well the acoustic insulation of the car is.
2. The design of the interior is gorgeous. This is what a car from the future looks like. The gear selector looks and feels so much like a yacht's or starship's throttle control that you often get the childish urge to throw it into S-mode to feel like Captain Kirk.
2. The soft-close doors make a world of difference.
3. Mechanically (TFSI and DSG powertrain), this ought to be the most fuel-efficient car in its class.

What I do not like
1. The only option with Quattro is the range topping A6 with all the bells and whistles, so the FWD model is realistically what most people would go for. I think not having Quattro as default is missed opportunity from Audi when it is such an integral part of their brand identity. The car's handling suffers due to all the torque being only delivered to the front wheels on what is arguably quite a front-heavy car. The Turanza tires also don't help much with traction. You do get quite a bit of wheel spin under hard driving and the car lurches unsettlingly like a carriage drawn by psycho horses. Perhaps the biggest annoyance with the lack of Quattro is in Audi's conversion of the car from LHD to RHD. The transmission tunnel up front is asymmetric and juts out to the right because this space is taken up by the Quattro setup. For economic reasons, Audi did not make an alternate setup for RHD cars, so the driver's side is more cramped compared to standard LHD models. This results in quite a noticeable offset in the driver's pedal position that can be uncomfortable. By the way, the brake pedal is also positioned a bit too forward. Not very ergonomic in my experience.
2. Courtesy of local emission laws, the engine has been gimped to a mere 188 horses. It feels lethargic when starting from standstill, with the power from the turbos only kicking in once the car gets going.
3. The dual clutch setup does not really make sense. Sure, it's snappy and responsive, but the conventional ZF's in the current 5-series aren't that far off the mark. With a measly 188 horses for the local model, do we really need a DSG considering its high maintenance costs and rough ride when quite a lot of Singapore driving is about chugging through traffic jams at low speeds in town?
4. Seat comfort is mediocre. Want an upgrade? Wait till you see the prices PA quotes for the better seat options…
5. The extensive plastics in the dashboard (relative to the A8) has resulted in many complaints about rattling coming from the mounts. When buying either from PA or a PI, make sure to get it in writing that if rattling is to occur, the dealer would bear the cost of fixing it.
6. The virtual cockpit works great with Audi's MMI system, but you cannot use the navigation apps on Apple Carplay with it unfortunately.
7. Blindspot assist does not come as standard.

Review
Test drove the newly launch Audi A6 2L (240hp)

Audi always has modern look, interior and exterior design are outstanding especially the front and rear LED light lights and front led lights.

New interior design are most attractive part, new twin display and virtual cockpit. Dashboard and door build with leather. The steering wheel feeling are super comfortable.

Car handling is good and cabin is quiet, the power engine and fit my need. The seat is comfortable with nice Milano leather. Car feature are excellent like 360 camera, adaptive suspension, wireless charger, HUD are all expensive feature for such a great car.




What I do not like

What I like
Comfortable and powerful car
High tech features and great design on interior, nice virtual cockpit and HUD
Nice car exterior design
Spacious seat and well tune of adaptive suspension

What I do not like
A bit pricey

Review
Test driven this new A6 last weekend. Must say it's Astonishing indeed.

First looks is the impressive lights at the front and rear as well as the curves of its new design body, though you may have to look carefully to notice the curves.

Inside is a brand new interior compared to the previous generation where no more budge out ugly screens, making it look odd looking. Now is all totally flushed in console, making it a luxury feel in it. Great mind thoughts finally.

The gadgets are great to have in all like the virtual 360 degree revolving camera, enhanced virtual cockpit, full touch screen console with handwriting recognition capability, and much more to your astonishment.

A pity that no variant comes with panaromic sunroof where you need to pay as option.

The drive is great as it comes with more power, less drag, 7 speed wet clutch gearbox (not the problematic dry clutch), more horses too.

Gearshifts are a Breeze and power delivery is certainly better than its predecessor, and in stoppages is not jerked at. Is a gradual stop with almost to no feel of it. Has heads up display too.

Passenger at the back does experience a comfort feel as during my test drive, an Uncle followed too and too comfortable drive, even at dynamic mode, he almost fell asleep.

Only thing didn't ask if it comes with any park assist or so to try on.

Overall, it's an improved A6 if you see it and for its drive, gadgets and best of all, its new refined interior with all nicely flushed in, thus giving it a high end luxury feeling.

It's kinda worth considering if you have a deep pocket of $240k (as of 9 September 2019).

What I like
Newly flushed in interior
Powerful drive than it's predecessor

What I do not like
No panaromic sunroof as standard.

Test drove the newly launch Audi A6 2litre with 245hp.

First look, a handsome car, with nice rear tail lights and front led lights. The only thing I do not like is the chrome that can be found along the doors and especially along the whole stretch of the rear boot. If I want full black trims, have to pay extra.

Interior is fabulous with the new twin display,offering crystal sharp images. Full of soft material on the console. The steering wheel looks awesome, it's the same steering wheel used in the A7. The only grip I have is he touch screen sensitivity. No matter how I tried, I need to pressed it a couple of time before it responses, you need to know where and how much force to use.

The drive was pretty good, no chance to test the cars handling as it was all straight road along LK. It's quiet and refine, expects of an Audi at this class. The steering wheel feels very light, there is no joy in driving it, can't feel any excitement with it. The power output, well, it seems fast when you press the pedal to the metal, but there is something lacking, you don't feel the urge of the car to surge ahead with the torque and horse power that is has, it just feels muted, it does not make a wow response from a driver.

What I like
- compare to bmw 530i, pricing is much lower with the same power and better features
- comfortable car
- nice high tech interior
- exterior looks nice
-lots of features, especially the 360 camera which is very useful in Singapore where roads and car parks are cramped and cars are getting bigger

What I do not like
- Muted drive, can't compare to a bmw 530 in terms of drive and power output
-steering wheel feels light
-not much freebies at the price point of $224k with over trade of $17.5, you have to use the savings you gain when compared to its competitors to buy the cameras and service credits etc..
