Reviews from across the Web report that the front seats of the Audi S6 are supportive and comfy, the rear seats are amply roomy for two, and interior quality is top-notch.
The elegance of the Audi S6 starts with the driving area's architecture, says Autoblog. The new-generation sport seats contain "integral head restraints"--a nice touch. The ForbesAutos reviewer notes the seats seemed "custom-fitted" for his "tall, narrow frame," and calls the front sport seats "supportive" and "firm." MyRide.com adds the "power tilt and telescoping steering wheel" makes for "optimum placement," noting the Audi 2008 S6's climate system controls are "clearly-marked" and within arm's reach.
The rear seating is "wide enough for three," says ForbesAutos, but notes they are "really meant for two, as indicated by the bolstered semi-bucket seats at the outboard positions." This means the person in the middle has to "saddle up on a short, flat leather perch between the two real seats."
As far as storage in the Audi 2008 S6 is concerned, ForbesAutos calls it "ample," pointing out the "bi-level console between the seats, a pair of unobtrusive cup holders...an overhead sunglasses holder and a glove compartment that automatically falls open once a cryptically labeled button on the dash is pressed."
Moving on to the quality of the Audi S6, Car and Driver says this "mature supersedan" is classy and has a spoils-rich atmosphere. The 2008 Audi S6 is better suited for those pulling long treks, says MyRide.com, rather than just going "back and forth to the office." Even so, the "top-notch plastics and leather" are worth mentioning, placing the "interior build quality" of the 2008 Audi S6 "among the best in the industry."
A word of warning: "higher speeds elicit a fair amount of road noise," MyRide.com notes.
With excellent seating for four and industry-leading interior quality, the 2008 Audi S6 excels in comfort.
