Audi A6 3.0T

Audi’s new supercharged 3-liter engine is the perfect marriage of performance and piety for the A6 model line. But from the outside, revisions to the Audi A6 appear to be relatively minor: The refreshed grille, bumpers, air vents, fog lights, and optional LEDs round out the list of styling modifications. Press the throttle, however, and the new 3-liter supercharged V-6 engine—dubbed 3.0T by the German automaker—is almost impossible to ignore. With 300 horsepower and 310 foot-pounds of torque, the Audi A6 3.0T provides a smooth ride to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds and boasts the added benefit of better fuel mileage—up to 26 mpg on the highway. The older, naturally aspirated 3.2-liter V-6 model has been deprecated in favor of the new supercharged engine, which is the same engine found in the 2010 Audi S4 performance sedan.
