									                             Review - 2012 Audi A6


                                             The 2012 Audi A6 looks best viewed in
                                             profile, where the prominent, sweeping
                                             shoulder line grabs the attention. So, too,
                                             do the revised proportions. The
                                             wheelbase has been extended by 2.7
                                             inches and the exceptionally small front
                                             overhang emphasizes Audi's sporting
                                             values. From the rear, the family ties with
                                             the A4 and A8 are self-evident — you
                                             need to be a confident Audi spotter to tell
the three apart — but it's handsome enough. The A6, in common with its key rivals,
is unlikely to seduce with its looks alone, nor will it offend its traditionally
conservative clientele. It's a date you could bring home to your parents.


The 2012 A6's supercharged, direct-
injected 3.0-liter V-6 with 310 hp and 325
lb-ft   of     torque    and    eight-speed
transmission combo helped propel the
4166-pound sedan from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8
seconds, and through the quarter mile in
13.4 seconds at 103.9 mph, smoking both
the 535i (5.6 and 14.1 at 101.0 mph) and
the E350 (6.6 and 14.9 at 94.5 mph).


2012 Audi A6 base price range, $45,000 to $60,000 (estimated).
