Standard equipment on the 2010 Audi A6 includes leather upholstery; power front seats; a multifunction steering wheel; cruise control; power windows, locks, and mirrors; Bluetooth connectivity; an AM/FM/six-CD changer; iPod integration; tilt/telescoping steering; a sunroof; dual-zone automatic climate control; 17-inch wheels; and a trip computer.
Supercharged 3.0T wagons add roof rails and a power tailgate. The V-8 edition gets shift paddles; a power-adjustable steering column; keyless entry and push-button start; Bose audio; and a navigation system. The S6 adds sport seats; new instruments; and a new sport steering wheel, along with heated rear seats.
Some of the features found in the Audi A6 will frustrate casual drivers and technophobes-yep, we're looking at you, Multi-Media Interface (MMI). It's easier to use than systems like BMW's iDrive and has beautiful 3D mapping and iPod integration, but MMI looks and feels outdated compared to the touch-driven systems from Jaguar and, especially, Ford, with its new MyFord and MyLincoln touchscreen systems, which adopt Apple's finger-swipe gestures.

Edmunds: MMI "has better-sorted menus, crisper graphics and a joystick-like control"
Autoblog: "MMI is still heads-and-shoulders better than most incarnations of BMW's iDrive, but it still has some annoying quirks"
