The 2014 Audi A6 also offers the possibility of in-car Wi-Fi using a 3G connection with the navigation system and adds Google Earth data while also simplified Google search for POIs. It sounds a bit exaggerated, but it is actually quite handy when you need to carry out some unexpected work on the road and there is no Starbucks in sight. Google Earth Navigation system is more a matter of form over function, however, and can actually make map more difficult to understand at a glance. All seats are supportive and comfortable on long trips, while the rear seat legroom in particular provides more real than most competitors. The 2014 Audi A6 14.1 cubic-foot trunk is on the small side when the rear seat folds and has a hatch, if more space is needed.
