Thank you for your update. We live in northern MN and this is a feature my wife insists upon so I am going to check with Viper to see if they have anything available. If they do not we will start to look at other brands (unfortunately).

Bouncing between A6 and E450/53

Before my test drives, my research shows:

Audi A6

-No remote start.

-No Air suspension? =Rougher ride?

-No All wheel steering.

+Had A6, very reliable. NO acceleration hesitation.

+😎 Active matrix headlights

+-Touch screen

-Touch screen: Fingerprints!

-All new model = less reliable?

Mercedes E450

+Dealer closer

-Infotainment overly complicated?

+Air suspension

+Not new model = more reliable?

+😎 cool windshield washers.

+😎 dual visors

+😎 trunk storage box.

?+E53 -ride quality?

+Remote Start via Mercedes Me

HBH
Btw, not sure if you made up your mind yet, but the Prestige trim has the available Adaptive Chassis Pkg with Active Damping Suspension and Dynamic All Wheel Steering that youíre looking for. Finger Prints not even noticeable when car is turned on really. But No Remote start. And NO full functioning Active Matrix Headlights in US markets.

If you go to https://www.audiusa.com/models/audi-a6 and configure a car the Adaptive Chassis Package option is not listed.

Youíre looking at the wrong page. You have to drill into the page with ALL the available features on the Prestige. https://www.audiusa.com/models/audi-...ures-and-specs. There look at bottom for Adaptive Chassis Package.

It is listed there and in their online brochure but it is not available as an option in the US. I wish it was. Here is the 2019 Audi Order Guide.

Thanks for the pdf. Too bad Audi isnít consistent on what they publish online. If itís these packages are not available in the US, then donít simply list them on the AudiUSA.com website. Good grief. But it does make me wonder now with all the big ticket items missing (Full Matrix, Adaptive Suspension, Dynamic Steering), if itís even worth it to get the Prestige model vs Premium Plus with added Available options (DAP, Warm/Cold Pkg, Convenience Pkg). Not that much different.

When comparing features of cars in a world market don’t the posters think that posting your location is important? Most of the high end features that make an Audi a cut above a Volkswagen are not available in the USA. People in the EU are lucky to have the fully developed car available to them, for us in the USA, it’s just a tease.
