The Audi A6 is a luxury sedan made by the German automaker Audi. The current generation of the A6 has been around since mid-2018, meaning it’s approaching the midpoint of its life cycle. As expected, the 2023 Audi A6 debuted with a mid-cycle update or ‘refresh,’ but critics, including Consumer Reports, maintain that it’s virtually unchanged from the 2022 model.

The changes are very subtle. For instance, the mild mid-life makeover sees the 2023 Audi A6 keep the same exterior design as the outgoing model — save for a few tweaks around the grille, lower and side air intakes, taillight graphics, and the rear bumper. Still, here’s a look at the top four things Consumer Reports liked about the 2023 Audi A6.

1. Braking

The first thing Consumer Reports loves about the 2023 Audi A6 is its superb braking performance, giving the driver more control and confidence. Additionally, the new A6 comes with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection. AEB can detect when a possible collision is about to occur and apply the vehicle’s brakes.

The 2023 Audi A6 also features an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). ABS prevents your wheels from locking up under extreme braking, restoring traction to your tires to help you steer in an emergency. The vehicle will come to a faster, more complete stop in the event of hard braking. Of course, these safety features are included as standard equipment in the new A6.

2. Handling

The Consumer Reports team also seemed to appreciate the 2023 Audi A6’s responsive handling. Of course, the engine configuration has a tremendous bearing on a vehicle’s handling. The base version of the 2023 Audi A6 comes with a highly responsive 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 261 horsepower.

Firm and responsive handling are vital regarding safety, the vehicle’s stability, and overall driving experience. According to Consumer Reports, the 2023 Audi A6 delivers lively and sporty handling. You will feel complete control as you attempt to blast from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds, as Audi says it should.

3. Interior fit and finish

Another thing that the Consumer Reports team thinks you’ll love about the 2023 Audi A6 is its elegant interior. Just as you would expect from a German luxury sedan, the interior of the new A6 looks upmarket. The fit and finish of the cabin is remarkable, and the use of standard real leather upholstery is a nice touch from the German automaker.

The genuine wood trim and refined materials, on top of the supple leather, highlight the sleek and modern interior design of the 2023 Audi A6. The diamond-stitched leather upholstery is standard, with the top Prestige trim adding an Extended Leather package to wrap the dashboard, armrests, and center console in soft leather.

4. Seating comfort

The fourth and final attribute of the new Audi A6 that Consumer Reports thinks you’ll love is the seating comfort. The interior of the 2023 Audi A6 does not just look elegant; it also feels comfortable for the driver and passengers. You will be comfortable for hours behind the wheel, and the grip gets stronger as horsepower increases.

Cabin space in the 2023 Audi A6 is what you’d expect for a mid-size luxury sedan. The rear seats are well-padded, and while it’s not the roomiest, there’s enough room back there to fit two adults easily— perhaps even three for a short trip across town.

The 2023 Audi A6 is the latest entrant into the mid-size luxury sedan market segment. While there’s a lot of carryover from last year’s model, there’s still plenty to love about the new A6. Consumer Reports points out the new Audi A6’s braking, handling, interior, and seating comfort as its best attributes.
