2018 Audi A6 Interior
This sedan, more sport oriented look, has done some damage to the rear interior space. It is somehow smaller in the back and the space for legs doesn’t look like it is made for an adult person.
The front is a totally different story. It is spacious with multilayer dashboard with overlapping materials, wood and aluminum trim and comfortable heated and ventilated seats. We had to notice that it is not so well sound isolated. So you can hear the wind and traction from the outside which is quite embarrassing for the Audi and the class of this vehicle.
Handling is more than awesome. When you drive this car, you feel like the king of the road. You have a total control over this vehicle in any driving environment, but Audi could have worked on the brakes a little bit more.
