Mein Auto:
Car & Driver picks A6, S6, S7, A7 in '10 Best'


Back to Back

Smitten by a handful of Audi premium models, the editors of Car & Driver decided not to single one out and instead named four Audi cars to the magazine's list of "10 Best Cars" for 2013: Audi A6 3.0T, Audi S6, Audi A7 3.0T, and Audi S7.

Like some other models on the list, the group of Audis comprised a single entry in the "10 Best." The editors explained why the Audi models stood out as a group as well as individually.
"Understated bodies cover stout structures into which Audi crafts beautiful and sensible interiors, without unnecessary complication," the magazine said. "Combine that with an unflappable chassis, accurate steering, ample power, and a general sense of quality and you have an unbeatable luxury/sports-car range."

But specifically, Car & Driver lauded the new "S" performance additions to the Audi stable at the high end of the premium market.

"For the S6 and S7, Audi takes the 'A' models' rich mix of virtues and turns it lethal, thanks in no small part to a 420-hp, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8," the "10 Best" article said. The magazine noted that in a recent comparison test, S6 "put the hurt on the vastly more powerful BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E632 AMG."

And the story exulted that, "on the road, the S6 is an inexhaustible cannon, more cohesive and less fiddly than cars costing an additional $20,000."

It was the second year in a row that Car & Driver liked this Audi model range so much. Last year, it named the A6 3.0T and A7 models to its "10 Best Cars of 2012" list.

Its more of an example of how BMW has lost its way with the F10 - even more so than the E60.
