The Audi A6 is the best of a few different worlds. For Orange County drivers who love to rev it up down the highway, it’s got torque to back you up, while also saving you on fuel. It’s a luxury vehicle within your budget, perfect for any O.C. driver.

Beautiful Styling

Inside and out, this Audi looks like something James Bond would drive. Building your own Audi online gives you a variety of options for interior wood inlays, 18 to 20″ wheels and performance tires, and LED headlights. The soft leather interior comfortably seats you and four passengers, so you can carpool to work or parties after hours in the O.C.


While there are plenty of accessories and trim options available for those who love to customize, the base price for the Audi A6 TDI is just $59,500. Not bad for a four-door luxury sedan with an engine that will save you on fuel in the long run. You also get everything included in the A6 Premium Plus package, like the eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Upgrading to the Prestige package, which includes even more styling and customization options, is just $63,700.

Fuel Economy

The TDI’s diesel engine gets 25 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. Compare that to the gas engine TFSI, which gets 24 city and 35 highway. The diesel fuel in this Audi burns clean, with no odors and at least 12 percent less CO2 emissions. Unlike a hybrid engine, the diesel engine also gives you more power while saving you fuel. You get an incredible 428 lb-ft of torque that takes you from zero to 60 in 5.5 seconds. The fuel efficiency plus the generous tank size gets you 729.6 miles on one tank of gas; that’s almost 12 hours of driving. Commute or race around the O.C. without worrying about your next fill up.


The Audi A6’s MMI operating system features innovations in touch control. Use a touch pad to write out a letter with your fingertip and spell out a destination for navigation or a song title to play from the cloud. The system also has button and voice controls available. Easily activate interior features like seat warmers with a touch or a voice command.


Keeping your family safe while driving in the O.C. is Audi’s top priority. The Audi A6 with the optional Driver Assistance package was an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ in 2015. The innovative frame has aluminum crumple zones in the front and rear and a rigid steel cabin. Front and side airbags wrap around the interior, forming a protective cushion. To help prevent an accident, Audi’s Driver Assistance technology alerts you to cars in your blind spot while changing lanes and helps you keep a safe following distance with adaptive cruise control.

You don’t make any sacrifices when you choose the Audi A6 TDI as your O.C. ride. Solo drivers and families can take this luxurious and eco-friendly car for a spin anytime, looking hip and being safe at the same time.
