How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The 2010 Audi A6 shows how brutal competition can be in the luxury-sedan world. In its twilight years, the A6 finds itself competing against brand-new sedans from BMW, Mercedes, and Infiniti, each with invigorating new styling and major dynamic improvements.

As a four-door sedan or five-door Avant wagon, the Audi A6 still has a svelte shape with relatively little fuss-from the side and rear, that is. At the nose, the A6 sports Audi's latest grille theme, a gaping maw that's the car's biggest styling misstep by far. It's a major distraction from the otherwise clean lines of both body styles. We think the Avant wagon's easily the most handsome family vehicle you can find in showrooms today; the sleek wagon back flows like few others we've seen.

Inside, the A6 mixes up the old Audi recipe of plain shapes, simple controls, and lots of wood. There's more going on here, and there's less wood trim than there used to be, but the A6's interior still is a functional and cleanly designed place to work.

The performance S6 edition carries on the sedan's classic roofline arc and "tornado" line that trails along the lower sills, but it sits lower and has side skirts and air dams that amp up the graceful shape. The S6 adds shiny carbon-fiber trim to the cabin, and it's not as rich-looking as you might hope-but as with the A6, the S6's cabin is flawlessly assembled.

More Opinions:
Autoblog: "supremely athletic presence"
Cars.com: "large snoutlike grille"
Edmunds: wagon "is easily one of the best-looking around"
Autoblog: "the wagon has better proportions than the sedan"
Car and Driver: "attractive interior and exterior"
Cars.com: interior "finishes feel consistently high-rent"
Edmunds: "one of the finest cabins in its class"
Kelley Blue Book: "leather surfaces are inviting"
Consumer Reports: "interior is well-finished and filled with nice details"

Conclusion

The 2010 Audi A6 and S6 share styling themes that are aging well, both inside and out.
