10 Best 2017 All-Wheel-Drive Sports Cars

9. Audi S6

Don’t let this mid-sized sedan fool you; the 2017 Audi S6 is one of the best AWD sport sedans. Its power packed twin turbo charged 4.0 L delivering 450 HP takes you from 0-60 mph in just 3.9-seconds.

The primary difference between Audi’s A6 and S6 is the A6 offers a 4-cylinder engine or a 6-cylinder engine. You can compare this to the Cadillac CTS V and Lexus GS F, with the Audi coming in at the bottom of the value market.

The Audi S6 starts around $70,900 dollars, the Cadillac CTS V starts around $85,995, and the Lexus GF F starts around $84,000. The S6 will shield your identity with its unsuspecting classic but aggressive Audi design. This car offers superior sedan size comfort with its welcoming heated leather seats, eclectic trim and supportive seats. Plus, all of the AWD advantages such as enhanced driving performance in all weather conditions, 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. That’s especially impressive compared that to the Cadillac CTS V, which gets an average of 14 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Very few cars offer sports car driving capabilities in a bold four door mid-sized sedan quite like the Audi S6 does.
