What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's lovely and quiet, with ample long-distance cruising ability and a great cabin

Against Keen drivers will be disappointed by the lifeless steering, and the ride is unsettled

Verdict Ride aside, the A6 is one of the classiest executive cars you can buy

Go for… 2.5 TDI

Avoid… Pre-facelift cars

Audi A6 Saloon
  • 1. Classy cabin is well built, dependable and stylish
  • 2. It has the largest boot in its class
  • 3. Suspension is the most likely area to give trouble so listen out for clunks on your test drive
  • 4. Check the electrics thoroughly - particularly the windows and warning lights
  • 5. Ignition coil failure affected 1.8T engines for a while - ensure coils have been replaced
