2012 Audi A6 | new car review

Posted on Apr 8, 2012 by

The new 2012 has been designed with ’s new ‘AQR’ design philosophy in mind with each vehicle category getting its own type of styling. It borrows a lot of design elements from its elder brother the A8 but the grille and the lower air dams are significantly different.

The interior has a layered-wood veneer and leather finish paired with high quality plastics. There is hardly anything to complain about here. Fit and finish quality is right up there along with its rivals and brushed aluminium touches add a classy feel.

Standard equipment on the 2012 Audi A6 includes the latest iteration of Audi’s MMI operating system that now supports Arabic and the handwriting recognition system can identify Arabic text inputs. The MMI (multimedia interface), for those who are not familiar with it, gives you a variety of information on various functions including navigation, audio system and car settings.
