What is the best year for a used Audi A6?

I’m in the market for a new luxury car, and the Audi A6 certainly has my attention. I’m just not all that jazzed about the new Audi A6 price. As such, I’m focused on finding a great deal on a used car—what’s the best model year for the A6?

A used Audi is a great option if you don’t want to pay high-end luxury prices. To get a great deal on a superior car, the best year for a used Audi A6 is either a 2010 model or a 2017 model.
The 2010 Audi A6 is the ideal choice for a bargain hunter, as it’s one of the top-rated and most reliable luxury cars you can find for under $15,000 to $20,000. Some of the best features of this car include:
  • Three engine choices that offer between 265 and 350 horsepower
  • Spacious trunk with 15.9 cubic feet of cargo space
  • Leather interior
  • 10-speaker stereo system
  • Bluetooth
If you want something with more modern features, the 2017 Audi A6 still gets great reliability ratings and offers even more perks, albeit at a price of around $25,000 to $30,000:
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • HD and satellite radio
  • Crash-mitigation and advanced safety systems
  • Two engine options offering 252 to 333 horsepower
  • Up to 34 mpg
