Driver-Centric Handling

With a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder, the E 300 and the A6 2.0T Premium produce 241 hp and 252 hp, respectively. Both generate 273 lb.-ft. of torque. While the A6 Sedan wins out in the horsepower category, the E 300 Sedan allows you to customize your drive to a more satisfying degree. Driver-selectable modes are standard on both sedans, but only the E 300 includes a 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed transmission for silky-smooth performance and handling on Costa Mesa roads. You can also choose between optional sport- or comfort-oriented suspension.
