If you are fanboying over Audi cars, then you should have known that the carmaker has a tame-looking mid-size sedan namely the Audi S6. This year, S6 is predicted to make a comeback—yet without a major facelift. But still, it seems many people are wondering how the 2023 Audi S6 will come as a piece that the carmaker produces. You may also be curious about this car. Don’t worry, you will find information about this car in the following article.
2023 Audi S6 Specification Overview
If you wonder what the 2023 Audi S6 looks like, then you should not expect a total makeover on this car. However, improvements for its performance as well as some tidbits of the car’s looks will also be found. A sportier suspension as well will come along with the upcoming release.
Hence, sources even mentioned that it may not be exaggerating that the car owns the title of a ‘sports sedan’. Another good thing is that the car’s looks are mentioned to be a premium one, but with a price lower by a huge sum of money of the S7 fastback.
Despite the good words, sources marked this car still lacking when compared to competitors including the Cadillac CT5-V, BMW5, Mercedes AMG SL55, and the Audi RS7, which unfortunately comes from the same carmaker.
What Trims You Can Find
The 2023 Audi S6 is mentioned to be coming with three trims with three optional packages following. These trims will include the base Premium, Premium Plus, as well as the highest trim Prestige, which comes with one additional yet optional package namely ‘Design Edition’. The three optional packages aforementioned are called ‘Convenience’, ‘Executive’, and ‘Sport Stitching’ packages.
Different trims and packages will determine the price of your Audi S6. For example, the base Premium model will have no heated rear seats as the Premium Plus model has. If you choose the ‘Sport Stitching’ package, you will get your seat to have contrast stitches. In contrast, this will not be available in the Convenience package. But sources mentioned that the stitching will come back in the Design Edition package.
What’s New for 2023 Release of Audi S6
You may wonder how the three trims differ. Well, the detailed information isn’t explained in sources—but to give you an insight about it, think of the Premium model as a standard one.
Higher than that, a Premium Plus model is coming with new interior lighting using LED lights. Not only that, but the features of this model will also include heated rear seats as mentioned earlier, more leather upholstery coverage (dashboard, center console, as well as the armrests), and complementary driver-assistance features.
The top Prestige trim will bring more features to the users. But how it differs isn’t stated how. However, when combined with the Design Edition, you will get the car to use 21-inch wheels, a black-dark chrome-accented exterior, as well as microfiber-leather upholstery for the interior. Sporty stitches on the seats are also available to find in the upcoming release of the 2023 Audi S6.
The Engine Aspect
How about the engine aspect of this car? Although there is no detailed information about what engine each trim of the Audi S6 will have, the car is predicted to use a twin-turbocharged, intercooler, and supercharged 2.9-L V6 engine.
The engine will be able to produce a maximum power of 444 HP at 6,700 rpm with a torque valued at 443 lb.-ft. when the engine works at 1,900 rpm. With such power production and torque, the 5-seat sedan is using an AWD drivetrain combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
When tested, the car is capable of accelerating from 0 mph to 60 mph within 4.0 seconds. To accelerate itself to 100 mph, 130 mph, and 150 mph, it will take 9.8 s, 17.3 s, and 26.2 s consecutively. Pretty fast, and for this, it is not exaggerating that the car has the quality of a sports car although there is still room for improvement.
The Interior Aspect
One word to describe the interior of the Audi S6: luxurious. Other sources also mentioned that the car’s design is modern and sleek. Fine materials in, superior techs in, what else to expect? It is the cargo size which is a bit ‘compact’ compared to competitors.
Regarding the infotainment tech, you can get two touchscreen displays (10.1-inch and 8.6-inch). While the upper screen can be used for navigation and other entertainment features, the lower screen will also be able to check the car’s settings as well as other controls. Android and Apple smartphone connectivity will also be available in the 2023Audi S6.
