===1995===
 
Audi has renamed its models once again in 1995. For instance, the former 100 was now called A6. Otherwise, the changes were mainly cosmetic, with new front sheetmetal.
 
 
The A6 was powered by the same 2.8-liter V6 as the Audi 90. It was available as a 4-door sedan or station wagon, and competed with the Mercedes E280/E320, Lexus ES 300/GS 300, Infiniti J30, BMW 530i and 540i, Oldsmobile Aurora, Volvo 960 and Saab 9000. The A6 Quattro was the only car in this class available with all-wheel drive.
 
 
The A6 wagon had 7-passenger capacity, and standard features like tilt/telescope steering column and a right-side mirror that automatically rotates downward to aid in parking. A 4-speed automatic transmission was standard on the wagon and optional on the sedan. It had electronically adaptive shift logic that selects from five different programs, from Economy to Sport. Unlike the Audi 90s, the A6's interiors were roomy.
 
 
===1998===
 
The Audi A6's second generation began starting with this model year. The station wagon was now known as the "Avant".
