Audi’s A6 is a refined, civilized, smart, and capable sedan with the potential for a sporty side, too. For the 2015 model year, the A6 continues building its reputation for high-tech, if conservative, luxury.
Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has said that in the next several months, the company will enable technology in its Model S all-electric sedan that may allow you to take your hands off the wheel in some instances.
