Audi A6 (2011–)

Last updated 3 April 2017

Impressive cabin with a straightforward layout. Very quiet and refined on the move. Navigation and leather seats as standard. Efficient 2.0 TDI provides good performance.
Less standard equipment than previous model and optional extras can very quickly push the price up.

Introduction

Audi isn't shy when it comes to launching new cars or creating new niches. However, the bread and butter remains its premium saloons - like A6 - the big rival to the BMW 5 Series as well as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Jaguar XF.

It certainly looks good and has a far sleeker and sharper design than before. It doesn't break too many boundaries but then most people who buy these posh saloons don't necessarily want to be noticed. Discreet but stylish is where it's at.

There's a hint of A8 in the styling and this continues inside, where the layout has a modern and minimalist design with great attention to detail and a quality feel throughout. It's a car that you could happily spend many an hour in.

It's just as impressive on the road with superb refinement, ride comfort and very little noise. And then there's economy.

The 2.0 TDI model can average more than 64mpg in some versions. That's according to the claimed figures of course, but in real life you'll probably see 50mpg which isn't at all bad for a big saloon. It doesn't hang around either and has plenty of torque giving a great turn of pace.

It's so good, it's right up there alongside the 5 Series and while it may not quite match the BMW on some fronts, it trumps it on specification thanks to a very high level of standard equipment that includes leather upholstery, cruise control, Bluetooth and navigation.
