Release Date

The release date information hasn’t been known yet officially, however, we believe that it will be in showrooms near the end of 2022.

We recommend

Drivers who prefer a sportier lower-trim S6 to a higher-trim A6 will have the same fantastic performance as the premium trim. The base trim, Premium misses out on a few essential features and opulence that the Premium Plus holds. We'd recommend the mid-range Premium Plus 55 trim level with its standard turbocharged V6 engine starting at just $77,400. Along with the strong, smooth engine, this trim has a lot of appealing amenities that will attract luxury consumers, like a 360-degree video system, an adaptive cruise control system, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a Bang & Olufsen audio system. Additionally, we'd suggest the S Sport package, which comes with All-wheel drive with dynamic steering, Brake calipers in red, and Sport rear differential Sport exhaust.

Engine and Performance


The Audi S6 is propelled by a 2.9L twin-turbocharged V-6 engine. To build turbo boost more quickly for 2023, it has been upgraded with an electric-powered compressor that uses a small turbine, according to Audi, which they claim enhances the engine's responses. The potent engine generates a whooping 444 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque output and is mated with the eight-speed automatic transmission and Quattro AWD system. However, Audi claims that it can run 0 to 60 MPH in 4.4 seconds and reach a quarter mile in 12.5 seconds. Although the transmission also changes quickly and smoothly, it occasionally upshifts too soon. The S6 shows itself to be a charming partner on winding roads. With the optional rear-wheel steering system, it hides its girth and feels more agile than we expected.

The Audi S6 has an extremely powerful engine, outperforming the engines of Mercedes and Maserati. But, it is outperformed by the BMW M550i with a significantly larger engine generating 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. It has the best 0 to 60 MPH timing of 3.6 seconds and can run a quarter mile in 11.8 seconds. Just four-tenths of a second slower than the BMW, Audi's smaller 2.9L engine propels it to a standing quarter-mile time of 12.5 seconds and can run 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.4 seconds. Mercedes-Benz AMG E53 with a top speed of 130 MPH can run 0-60 miles in 4.4 seconds and can reach a quarter mile in 12.6 seconds. The Italian sedan Maserati can run 0-60 miles in 4.5 seconds and reach a quarter mile in 13.3 seconds. It has nothing holding it back, allowing it to reach a top speed of 178 MPH, while the Audi S6 has a limiter that caps the top speed at 155 MPH.

2023 Audi S6 Sedan Ride and Handling

The Audi A6 is both a fun vehicle to drive on winding roads and a reliable travel companion. Although a little light, the steering is quick and precise, making it simple to control the S6 in confined spaces or down twisting backroads. Thanks to the available adaptive sport suspension, the ride is very smooth. Pavement is smoothed over by the S6 without feeling light or excessively soft. Even with its standard suspension, it maneuvers through turns with ease. A wheelbase of 115.3 inches makes the car quite stable, and it has a top speed of 156 MPH and a 0-60 time of under 4.0 seconds, making for an overall rapid driving experience. The braking reaction is not poor, and the braking power is also appropriate. The S6 performs better as a luxury vehicle than a sports sedan because of its comfortable ride. This car is a terrific overall package thanks to the perfect balance of optional equipment and practical performance.

2023 Audi S6 Sedan Braking Performance

The 2023 Audi S6 Sedan comes equipped with brake rotors measuring 15.8 and 13.8 inches at the front and rear. It is equipped with all of the braking systems as standard equipment, including automatic emergency braking, 6-piston front, and single-piston rear calipers, Electromechanical Parking brake, and Driveline Traction Control. The effectiveness of emergency braking is good. Although it's not at the top of the class, it's close. The S6's brakes have a strong pedal that is easy to operate and a fantastic sensation when driving about town. Coming to a gentle stop is simple.

In comparison, the Maserati Ghibli Modena comes equipped with a set of brake rotors measuring 14.2 and 13.6 inches at the front and rear and with its least curb weight of 4,123 lbs. Second, on the list after Audi is the Mercedes-Benz AMG E53 which comes with 14.6 and 14.2 inches at the front and rear having a curb weight of 4,341 lbs. However, measurements of the brake rotors for the BMW M550i are unavailable but it has a curb weight of 4,275 lbs. Although Audi S6 has the biggest set of brake rotors measuring 15.8 and 13.8 inches, although it has an excessive curb weight of 4,486 lbs can hinder its braking performance.

Fuel Economy


Sport sedans prefer to be less efficient than their counterparts that are better suited for the road to provide a more thrilling driving experience, which doesn't go well with fuel consumption and the economy of it. When compared to the previous V-8 model, the S6 has better fuel efficiency. EPA estimates for the new Audi S6 seem to be 19 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined. Furthermore, the Audi S6 that falls in the midsize luxury sedan can cover a range of 540 miles on the highway thanks to its fuel tank capacity of 19.3 gallons in its class.

In comparison, Maserati Ghibli Modena has the best fuel capacity of 21.1 gallons but has the lowest combined fuel efficiency of 20 MPG. Mercedes-Benz AMG E53 is the most fuel-efficient car in its class offering 25 MPG combined and 29 MPG on the highway but has the lowest fuel capacity of 17.4 gallons. BMW M550i having a competitive fuel capacity of 18 gallons, offers the lowest fuel efficiency of 17 MPG in the city, 25 MPG on the highway, and 20 MPG combined. However, with a fuel capacity of 19.3 gallons, the Audi S6 sedan provides a range of 347 miles in the city, 540 miles on the highway, and 424 miles combined. While comparing all the statistics we can say that the BMW M550i sedan is a much better fuel-efficient vehicle in its class.

Interior


The S6 continues a legacy of luxurious elegance and cutting-edge technology, with spacious and comfortable interiors brimming with entertaining technology. Elegant materials, plush leather, and authentic wood trim highlight Its sleek design and contemporary aesthetic. Both the front and rear seats provide plenty of room, as one would anticipate from a midsize luxury vehicle. The front seats have a low mounting. Although it's a sporty driving stance, some people could find it challenging to get in and out. The door openings are at least large and spacious. Although the visibility is good, it can be a little challenging to see forward due to the steep hood and window line. The contoured seat side bolsters of the standard front sports seats provide stable support. You can also opt for the front sports seats plus rhombus-patterned Valcona leather. Standard features include adjustable ambient lighting, diamond-stitched leather upholstery, four-zone automatic climate control, a heated, power-adjustable steering wheel, and heated front seats with twelve different adjustments.

The Audi S6's low-slung design supports its sporty appeal. This certain type of seating is available across the board in the segment, as demonstrated by the restricting headroom all the vehicles have to offer the BMW M550i leads the segment with 38.8 inches and offers a cargo capacity of 14 cu-ft. The S6 has competitive interior space because its interior dimensions aren't over half an inch smaller than those of the segment ruler, and it has the most legroom of 37.4 inches in the back row of seats compared to other vehicles in its class. The trunk is also quite sizable, with 13.7 cu-ft of storage space. The Maserati Ghibli Modena outperforms its rivals with the biggest trunk providing 17.7 cu-ft of storage space whereas the Mercedes-Benz AMG E53 has the lowest cargo capacity of 13.1 cu-ft.

However, some of the interior features that make the S6 a pleasant place to include:

  • Diamond-stitched leather seats
  • Dashboard length touchscreen setup
  • Cockpit inspired design 
  • Multicolor ambient lighting
  • Heated front and rear seats
  • Fade-To-Off Interior Lighting

How intuitive is the 2023 Audi S6’s infotainment system?

The infotainment system in the 2023 Audi S6 is flawless; it features a vibrant touch screen and a user interface coupled with carefully designed software that can actually be used while driving, but only to a limited extent. The digital displays take up most of the dashboard space on the S6. The primary 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen is placed on top of a secondary 8.6-inch display. While the lower screen offers access to vehicle settings, climate control, and other features, the upper screen manages operations like navigation, audio controls, and other infotainment features. An onboard Wi-Fi hotspot and Audi's Virtual Cockpit digital gauge display are standard on all S6 models. It also offers support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. These features elevate the Audi S6 above the competition in terms of technology and connectivity.

Some of the most notable infotainment features available with the 2023 Audi S6 include

  • 10.1-inch touchscreen on the dashboard
  • 8.6-inch secondary display under the main touchscreen
  • 19-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system (optional)
  • Audi Digital Cockpit
  • Apple CarPlay 
  • Android Auto

Exterior


The 2023 Audi S6 is a sleeper vehicle with a conservative exterior and a few sporty features that set it apart from the basic A6. The broad, flat Audi Singleframe with double slats in an aluminum look and the S6 badge in the radiator protection grille, as well as the eye-catching side air inlets and a cutting-edge lighting scheme, are the sporty elements that draw attention to the front end of the S6 Sedan. Four chrome tailpipe trims in the S-specific diffuser and the body-colored rear spoiler complete the sporty look at the back. Alloy 20-inch wheels are also included in the list of standard features. Some of the sporty features include larger alloy wheels, a lowered chassis, and a quad-exit exhaust system. The S design Edition is a choice made at a premium and comes with 21-inch Audi sports wheels, a black roof, red brake calipers, and exterior elements finished in liquid dark chrome. The Black optic package includes 21-inch diamond cut wheels as well as black exterior elements.

The Audi S6 has a lower ground clearance of 4.2 than any of its competitors, giving it a more aggressive approach for performance. Being the shortest of the four cars also impacts entry, though getting out is surprisingly simple when the vehicle is so close to the ground. Its crafty design allows for more rear legroom despite having a shorter wheelbase than its rivals. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E53 has the highest curb weight of 4,341 lbs after the Audi S6 and features a ground clearance measuring 4.5 inches. BMW M550i with a curb weight of 4,275 lbs has the best ground clearance of 5.3 inches. Maserati Ghibli Modena is the lightest of all with a curb weight of 4,123 lbs but has the biggest wheelbase of 118 inches. However, the Audi S6 premium has the best track widths of 64.3 inches in the front and 63.7 inches in the rear after Maserati.

However, the Audi comes with some standout features including

  • 21-inch 5-Double-Spoke V-Design alloys wheels
  • 21-inch Summer tires
  • Matrix design LED headlamps
  • Fixed Rear Window with Defroster
  • LED Brakelights
  • Express Open/Close Sliding And Tilting Glass 1st Row Sunroof with Sunshade

Safety


The body is considerably more than just a car's outer shell at Audi; it is a technical highlight and the foundation for a number of attributes like lightweight design, accuracy, rigidity, vehicle dynamics, safety, and aerodynamics. Crash safety is a top focus during every stage of development for Audi. Every new model needs to adhere to the standards. Audi naturally included the same safety features that it does in the outgoing A6 sedan in the S6, given how closely the two vehicles resemble each other, from the platform to the exterior styling to the overall construction. The Audi A6 receives 5-stars for overall safety from the NHTSA, and since the same platform is shared by the S6, we can expect similar levels of safety, security, and occupant protection but the 2023 Audi RS 6 Avant hasn’t been crash-tested by the authorities yet. The sedan includes standard driver-assistance technology like Audi’s virtual cockpit plus, MMI Touch, adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, and a top-view camera system with a 360-degree camera.

The following are notable safety features of the 2022 Audi S6:

  • Emergency braking assist
  • Remote park Assist Plus
  • Front Collision Assist
  • Lane-departure warning
  • Night Vision assistant
  • Adaptive Cruise Assist
  • Road sign identification
  • Top-view camera system (360 Degree)

Competition


2023 Audi S6 vs 2023 BMW M550i

BMW's 5 Series is known as the best vehicle for having a combination of sporty attributes and a premium cabin with the luxury appeal, and the BMW M550i xDrive ranks at the top of this series in every sense. The M550i, which borrows parts from the M performance division, offers a lethal combination of performance-oriented mechanicals and road-focused comfort. The crazily quick 0 to 60 times of 3.6 seconds and the 12.1-second standing quarter mile are proof of the performance. Both the M550i and the Audi S6 are high-quality offerings. Even though the Audi S6 isn't as powerful as the BMW M550i, you'll fall in love with its elegant and minimalist exterior styling and a slightly higher level of luxury appeal. However, we would still suggest BMW M550i with a bigger engine that generates slightly better engine power than Audi S6.

2023 Audi S6 vs 2022 Mercedes-Benz AMG E53

The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 Sedan's arch-rival is undoubtedly the Audi S6.Although the traditional Mercedes-Benz levels of comfort are nonexistent in their tightly sprung AMG models, the AMG E 53 is an option that strikes a healthy balance between speed and comfort. Even with the additional cost packages included, the E 53 sedan's performance has been scaled back to match its numbers, but it is still a luxurious car with an interior that can compete with the Audi S6 sedan. The driving dynamics, fuel efficiency, and range figures of the E 53 Sedan appear to be better, and the interior and exterior design cues from AMG make it much more appealing.

2023 Audi S6 vs 2022 Maserati Ghibli Modena

Italian automakers are well-known for going overboard with their designs, but Maserati is an exception that can deftly slip under the radar. This brand has a small number of extremely distinctive and potent automobiles to its name. While other automakers have attempted to reinvent current car body styles, Maserati has stayed true to its roots, offering sportier but more straightforward vehicles that can be reduced to four tires and a powertrain. In comparison to the Ghibli, the 2023 Audi S6 is a far superior vehicle offering more powerful engine output and better fuel efficiency. It has more interior space, and the overall design and cabin quality are second to none. Audi already has a reputation for having cutting-edge technology. Although Audi has significant advantages in the engine department, we believe the Maserati Ghibli has a better overall design and appears more graceful when compared to the S6's straight-line philosophy. However, If you are looking for a powerful yet luxurious car on a budget Audi S6 is a better choice.

Final Verdict


The 2023 Audi A6 is a superb automobile with a starting price of $72,700 that offers competitive fuel efficiency and range in its class. For someone looking for a plain-looking vehicle with exceptional attributes and performance, the Audi S6 is a wise investment. The S6 is a good purchase at its price as well, but its stance and low ground clearance are a bit problematic preventing it from being the widely purchased sedan. The S6 offers a blend of luxury and driving dynamics that broadens its enthusiast appeal. It is faster than the opulent A6 but not as crazy as the RS6. The S6 lacks the aggressive styling of some rivals and, aside from its quad-tipped exhaust, It more or less resembles a standard A6. The S6, however, will prove to be much faster and more entertaining due to its strong engine and chassis upgrades. Furthermore, the interior gets subtle sporty touches like larger paddle shifters and more heavily enhanced front seats.
