All Details & Specifications Of New 2023 Audi S6
2023 Audi S6 is the brand’s mid-size, mild A6-based sedan, but wakes up graciously from a zesty 444-hp twin-turbo V6 engine and sportier suspension. The dose of caffeine is big enough of an injection for the S6 to earn the label of “sports sedan.” Along with sports-sedan behavior, the S6 also offers a premium interior, which helps balance its conservative design. If the S6’s minimal, three-box sedan looks aren’t attractive enough for you, Audi offers a sleeker fastback S7 with identical mechanical bits. But it’ll cost you $10,000 more. When maneuvering on a curvy stretch of road in the S6 and it suddenly feels like a smaller car, with agile handling and effortless, beautifully modulated power. Competitors like the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing and Mercedes-AMG E53 are both more aggressive and more fun.
The Executive package is also new and includes adaptive cruise control with a lane-centering feature, a power trunk lid, and LED interior lighting. Buyers can opt for the Audi Sport Stitching package, which puts red contrast stitching on black leather upholstery throughout the cabin. The mid-range Premium Plus model now comes standard with LED interior lighting, heated rear seats, additional driver-assistance features, and extended leather upholstery that covers the dashboard, armrests, and center console. The top-of-the-line Prestige model is now available with the Design Edition package, which adds unique 21-inch wheels, black exterior trim, and darkened chrome accents; the package also includes black microfiber-and-leather interior upholstery with red stitching.
Engine & Performance
As the last-gen S6 was powered by a solid 450-hp 4.0L V8, the 2023 model comes with an even more complex powertrain. The standard 2.9L V6 is twin-turbocharged and uses a 48-volt hybrid system powering an electric supercharger for additional boost. Combined, the system produces a whopping 444 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system mating are standard. The brand claims the car can hit 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds but we think that number is traditional. The S7, the S6’s more-aggressive counterpart managed to hit 0-60 mph in just 4.1 seconds at our test track. On curvy roads, the S6 is a lovely partner to ride in. It diminishes its size and feels nimbler than it looks, especially with the optional rear-wheel-steering system.
|2023 Audi S6 Mileage
Here the cost of running may disappoint you as this luxury gets you 18 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined. Although a significant increase over its predecessor, all thanks to the hybrid powertrain.
Dimensions, Space & Airbags

The S6’s dashboard is completely covered by digital displays. The main 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen lies above the secondary 8.6-inch display. The upper screen manages functions like navigation, audio controls, and other entertainment features. All S6 models have Audi’s Virtual Cockpit digital gauge display and onboard Wi-Fi hotspot as standard. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are also included.

The Prestige trim costs a little more but it unlocks a lot of features, which include a hands-free driving mode, a HUD, and matrix-design LED headlamps. Many others like automatic high beams, soft-close doors, a power-operated trunk lid, and heated rear seats. We’d also recommend adding the 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo system and the cool night vision feature that helps identify animals and pedestrians in the dark.
