Available with two engines for the first time, including a diesel for the European market

The 2020 Audi S6 is the higher performance version of the fifth-generation A6, also known as the C8. Slotted between the regular A6 and the beefed-up RS6, the S6 bridges the gap between comfort and performance. Only slightly sportier than the A6 design-wise, it features a more powerful engine, a sportier chassis setup, and exclusive features that aren’t available with the standard sedan. The 2020 S6 is the first model of its kind to feature two engine options, including a diesel.

Audi dropped the already traditional 4.0-liter V-8 from the lineup and replaced it with the much newer 2.9-liter V-6. But the twin-turbocharged mill is for the U.S. market only. In Europe, the S6 features a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel. But don’t let the oil burner status fool you. This diesel is plenty powerful, and it delivers notably more torque than its gasoline counterpart. Both engines feature a mild hybrid system and permanent Quattro AWD with torque vectoring. Let’s find out more about them in the review below.
