The 2008 Audi A6 and high-performance S6 are two iterations of Audi's mid-size luxury sedan. The A6 is an elegant and capable sedan also available as the Avant wagon, while the S6 sedan is offered for those who lust for plenty of V10 power under the hood.
New for 2008, the A6 sedan and wagon get S-Line exterior upgrades standard, which include an integrated deck lid spoiler, sportier front and rear bumpers, and "S" badging.
Both the A6 and S6 deliver plenty of power. But while the A6 has a 255 horsepower 3.2 liter V6 and available 350 horsepower 4.2 liter V8, it is the S6 that's equipped with the road-scorching 435 horsepower 5.2 liter V10. All of this power is sent to Audi's Quattro all wheel drive in all models except for the Base V6 powered A6 that is front wheel drive.
Mileage among the 3 engines ranges from 14 miles per gallon city to 27 miles per gallon highway.
Base MSRP for the 2008 Audi A6 is $42,950, while the S6 doubles that and can reach $85,000 fully loaded.
Whatever the body, setup or engine selection, the Audi A6 and S6 offer comfortable automobiles that blend performance, luxury, and a hearty helping of European style.
