With a host of available technologies, the 2012 A6 easily outsmarts today's driving environment. Its integration of Google Earth connects the vehicle to destinations in ways not previously possible and its ability to transform into a Wi-Fi hotspot means your passengers stay connected no matter where they are. Finally, an intelligent build makes the 2012 A6 the lightest, most powerful, most fuel-efficient A6 yet, proving once and for all that brawn and brains are anything but mutually exclusive.
The 2012 A6 offers intuitive technologies that anticipate human error on the road. Audi side assist keeps an eye on your blind spots while you keep your eyes on the road, using LED lights in your side mirrors to alert you of fast-approaching vehicles. Night-vision assistant uses thermal-imaging technology to detect unseen objects up to 1,000 feet in the distance while Audi pre sense offers four distinct stages of automated response for the times when even your fastest reactions aren't fast enough.
Intelligence means understanding that there is more than one correct answer in any situation. As the road changes, so too should your drive. With Audi drive select, four distinct settings configure your A's engine, suspension, transmission and steering wheel, allowing you to match the vehicle's performance to your mood, your needs or the road itself.
A car capable of making 2,000 decisions a second has to be built in smart way. Its steel-aluminum construction makes the 2012 the lightest A6 yet, enhancing nearly every aspect of the vehicle's performance. This composite build lightens the static weight of the car, allowing it to harness more power, stop more quickly and decreases its fuel consumption by up to 19% compared to previous models.
