For The Audi A6 is refined and has a luxurious, spacious interior. It's also well equipped and the engines are impressively efficient and economical.

Against It isn't as rewarding to drive as a Jaguar XF and some of the controls are a little fiddly.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Audi A6 range offers something for just about every executive car customer. The 2.0 TDI Ultra is the big seller because it combines tax-friendly CO2 emissions with all the image of pricier models. It's also supremely refined, and strong enough in terms of its performance to make the much more expensive, six-cylinder, four-wheel-drive diesel models difficult to justify.

We'd also go for SE trim. It comes with everything most people will want, including leather upholstery, sat-nav, climate control for those in the front and back, and front and rear parking sensors. Many people will be drawn to the sportier looks – and handling – of the dearer S line models, however. We can see the appeal but you pay the price financially and, if you don't de-select the standard sports suspension, in ride comfort.
