2018 Audi A6 Driver assistance
Your guide through the chaos.
We developed driver assistance systems to help make your drive a little less stressful. The A6 is equipped with available radar technology to help increase awareness during lane changes in congested traffic. An available top-view camera system can help make backing out of a parking spot easier by displaying vehicles in hard-to-see spaces. We develop these systems because extra awareness can make a big difference.
Audi pre sense® basic
Standard on all Audi A6 models, Audi pre sense basic can begin closing the side windows and sunroof and tightening the front safety belts in the case of an unexpected event on the road.
Available Audi pre sense® plus
The available Audi pre sense® plus offers comprehensive driving assistance, with sensors in the front, side and rear. After visual, physical and aural collision warnings, there are four distinct phases for automatic preparation for the unavoidable: an upsurge of brake pressure, safety belt pretensioning, partial braking and sunroof and window preparation. In severe cases, Audi pre sense® plus can engage full braking to aid in deceleration.

Available head-up display
With easy-to-view, accurate visual information right at eye level, this available feature displays important driving information and even pedestrian detection warnings when equipped with the optional night vision assistant on S6 models.
Available top view camera system
Four cameras provide an overhead view of your surroundings to help make parking easier. The technology shows you where your vehicle is in relation to obstacles nearby, helping give you the confidence to maneuver in practically any environment.
Available Audi active lane assist and available Audi side assist with Audi
pre sense® rear
Operating at speeds above 37 mph, this Audi active lane assist system helps detect when the vehicle begins to leave the lane without signaling. Then, through gentle, corrective steering efforts, it helps the vehicle remain in the lane and vibrates the steering wheel as an additional warning. This way, Audi active lane assist complements the driver’s decision-making process and helps to further solidify the bond between driver and machine.
The available Audi side assist uses radar sensors and two different optical warnings to help keep the driver informed about what is approaching from hard-to-see angles behind and to the side of the vehicle. And if the rear radar sensors detect a critical situation, Audi pre sense® rear helps prepare for an impending collision by tensioning the safety belts and partially closing the sunroof and side windows.
Available Audi adaptive cruise control with stop & go
Using long-range radar and a camera, the available Audi adaptive cruise control with stop & go helps read the traffic conditions and adjusts the speed, helping to bring the vehicle to a stop before accelerating when traffic flow resumes.
