Default Is it worth it to get the Adaptive Chassis Package?

I am considering a 2019 A6 and I am contemplating what packages to add to it. Would it be worth it to get the adaptive suspension and all wheel steering? I like a very very smooth ride and I am not sure if that would actually improve the ride or keep it the same. Any help and input would be much appreciated!!

If you're in the US, there isn't much evidence you'll be getting the Adaptive Chassis Package on an A6 any time soon... (Still not showing up on the online builder or in the most recent order guide)

I noticed on the actual build it is quite glitchy. Iíll have to check the build sheets when I get into work tomorrow to
confirm it is in fact an option. This screenshot is from the USA website.

I believe it is different from adaptive air suspension offered in the SUVs (Q7, Q8 etc..). I wouldn't waste my money on it.

I was really counting on the all-wheel steering for a slight increase in maneuvering ability compared to my current 2016 A6, but due to my current lease expiring at the end of February, could wait no longer on availability of the Adaptive Chassis Package and placed an order yesterday for a 2019 S4 in hopes that the smaller overall package will be an advantage in our close-quarters parking garage.

I got a quote for a lease. I think Iím going to hold off and see if the programs/rebates get better. The mkney factor is okay, but the residuals kill it.

If available I would get the all wheel dynamic steering. Mine is last years model with sports adaptive steering and air suspension and it drives like a sports car and very very comfortable. The all wheel steering would help with manoeuvring for sure. They are big vehicles and I have to take several turns to negotiate my garage. The all wheel steering takes at least a metre (yard) off the turning circle. - excellent. But also it would greatly benefit drivability. Do it!!

There is no air suspension but the adaptive cruise control is amazing. We got the sport suspension package and we live the ride... plus with the sound deadening glass, the cabin is amazingly quiet...

Yes they have done great stuff with the sound deadening. Double glazing is also a major (option). But I have black edition so no double glazing. Also have adaptive cruise control - very impressive - especially in dense traffic and an incredible safety item. I've driven the new A7 but the A6 and Avant not here yet - soon.
