What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The Audi A6 is well equipped and superbly refined, yet it still handles well. Go for a smooth diesel engine and running costs are kept low

Against Electrical and air-con problems can blight used cars, the ride is firm and some owners don't like the light steering

Verdict A used A6 gives you a lot of car for the money, yet it's good to drive, reliable and needn't cost a fortune to run.

Go for… 2.0 TDI SE

Avoid… 4.2 V8 auto

Audi A6 Saloon
  • 1. There‚Äôs masses of space for five adults in the cabin
  • 2. Some owners have reported that the engines and transmissions are below par, so test drive several cars if you can
  • 3. Suspension and brakes could be vulnerable to faults, so insist on a test drive
  • 4. Interior build quality is renowned and should stand up well over time
  • 5. Engines are thirsty, especially big petrol units. 2.0 TDI is most frugal, but 3.0 V6 TDI is best all-rounder
