Stunning looking and practical executive estate. At its best with quattro 4WD and the excellent 3.0 TDI engine.
Back seat not comfortable for three across.

Introduction

The new Avant is a big car, longer than the saloon and 4mm higher. It's also very beautiful, both sleek and perfectly proportioned, and that shape brings the added benefit of uncannily low wind noise.

Crucially, the roof is higher over the heads of rear seat passengers and comfortably accommodates three. The luggage area is long, and wide; more than a metre even between the rear wheelarches and 1.2 meters right at the back, which is handy for golf clubs. Seats up, there is 565 litres of loadspace to window level; seats down 1,660 litres to the roof.
