2009 Audi A6 Pricing Announced

Audia6

Audi’s updated 2009 A6 rolls into dealerships in January with appearance tweaks and a new supercharged V-6 for the new year. Pricing will increase an average of $3,700 versus 2008 models, starting at $45,100 for a front-wheel-drive 3.2 sedan, not including an $825 destination charge.

Stepping up to Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive models gives you the new supercharged V-6, making 300 hp and 310 pounds-feet of torque. Called the 3.0T, pricing is set at $50,100 for the 3.0T sedan and $53,310 for the 3.0T Avant wagon. A full pricing breakdown, including the 4.2-liter V-8 sedan and a high-performance V-10-powered S6 are below.

Three trim levels are offered for 2009, including Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige, so now base A6 owners can feel special calling their entry level A6 the “Premium” trim. Standard equipment includes a sunroof, Bluetooth, heated front seats on Quattro models and iPod connectivity.

Fuel-economy numbers for the new supercharged V-6 have also been announced: the 3.0T is rated at 18/26 mpg city/highway, or 21 mpg combined. This bests the BMW 535i xDrive’s ($53,000) combined mileage by 1 mpg, and the AWD Mercedes-Benz E350 ($53,200) by 3 mpg.

  • Audi A6 3.2 sedan Premium — $45,100
  • Audi A6 3.0T Quattro sedan Premium — $50,100
  • Audi A6 3.0T Quattro Avant Premium — $53,310

A nice car but way overpriced. It's really a gussied up Passat, which is not a bad thing but not for 50 large. For that price I'd go with the Benz, which has better resale value and much better quality. Or for the same money you could buy a Honda Insight and an S2000 for the weekends.

Hybrit, you are way off. The Passat is built off its own seperate platform. So is the A6. Do your homework first....

Jay

And nothing beats the "Ultimate Driving Machine"...

Jay, The A6 and Passat are exactly the same width and within five inches of each other in length - and they share some of the same engines and transmissions. Similarly,the A3 appears to be related the Rabbit and the A4 to the Jetta. Separate platform or not, I still think the A6, while a nice car, is overpriced. I think the Mercedes and BMW are better cars for the same money.

Yeah but why do you think that Hybrit? Have you driven each back to back with an eye towards actually buying one?

A vehicle appearing to look like another vehicle does not make it the same.

The A3 and TT are related to the Golf/Jetta as they use a common or near common transverse mount platform.

An A4 (along with the A5 and Q5) use a newer longitudinal platform which the A6 will share. In fact, the A4 and A6 are the closest in relation when it comes to the platform.

While the A6 is a tad overpriced (I partially blame that on the weak US to Euro conversion), but how it drives is not close to how a Passat (current generation is transverse mount). For me, I am looking (and budgetting) for an A5 or a 335d coupe if they every bring it here to the states.

This car is too expensive when you consider its similar in size and power to the CTS and G37. A CTS DI starts at $39k and comes standard with RWD, not FWD. Audi needs to remember it lacks the panache of BMW and MB when pricing its models.

JM

Passat and A6 use the same powertrains? sorry bud, but you have not officially destroyed any credibility you have.

Passat uses 2.0T I4 and (now defunct) 3.6L V6

A6 uses 3.2L V6, 3.0T V6, 4.2L V8 and a 5.2L V10.

none of the engines are really the same in any way, even the V6 models. sure, they both use a 6 speed auto for all of their cars, but they are different ratios.

and if you think Mercedes has higher quality than Audi, you've never been or read about either. even Consumer Reports gives the A6, and Audi in general, a higher reliability score than Mercedes. the A6 has a higher quality cabin than the Mercedes, and resale values are similar.

so before you go on with your one-sided, biased garbage, do some research and save all of us some time.

Hybrit

Don't take it so hard. For many years Audi built a poor car. They used plenty of parts from the VW bin. Maybe that's changed temporarily or maybe for good. But if I'm going to gamble with 50 grand, it will be on a Mercedes. I don't have to read Consumer Reports to see that there are a lot of old MB's running around, and no old Audis. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Hybrit

Of the 742 Audis for sale on ebay, only 4 percent are 10 years old or older. Of the 2,932 Mercedes Benz's for sale on ebay, 17 percent are 10 years old or older.

Hybrit, the cars are on Ebay, which may indicate more problems - people have to auction them to get rid of them.

Also it could just be higher sales numbers. Which do not equate to better reliability. But if a Mercedes works for you, great.

Hybrit

Hey JM,
Since you live and die by Consumer Reports Ratings you should be aware that the February edition rates luxury cars, and guess what? The Audi A6 ranks 5th overall - that would be below both E class Mercedes Models. The magazine ranks the Mercedes as equal to the Audi in reliability, but obviously the Audi is an inferior performer when compared to Mercedes. Read it and weep when you get a chance, unless you consider CR "biased garbage."
