2012 Audi A6 (four-cylinder): 25/33 mpg

diesel may come in 2013
Popular Mechanics

Fuel economy, though, looks good for a car in this class. EPA ratings are 19 mpg city and 28 highway compared with 18 and 26 for the previous A6 3.0T Quattro. We averaged 23 over the course of our two-week test.
Car and Driver


The 2012 Audi A6 offers very good fuel economy even when it's powered by a terrifically quick V-6, and especially in its base four-cylinder configuration.

To get the best fuel economy, though, you'll have to endure Audi's continuously variable transmission. We haven't driven this version, but the powertrain isn't changed much from the last-generation cars--and we expect the same typically sluggish response and powertrain drone we've sampled in other CVT Audis.

Still, with the CVT, the 2012 A6 earns an EPA-certified 25/33 mpg, an exceptional figure for a luxury car, and just a few ticks below fuel-conscious sedans like the 2012 Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima.

The supercharged, direct-injected V-6 powerplant and its standard all-wheel drive deliver 19/28 mpg.

Audi's promising both hybrid and diesel versions of the new A6 for the North American market, but neither is due to arrive before the 2013 model year.

Conclusion

Gas mileage isn't quite up to the numbers you'll find on basic family sedans, but the luxurious 2012 Audi A6 has great fuel economy for its class.

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.
