What used Audi A6 Allroad estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Audi A6 Allroad estate?

Whether an Audi Allroad makes financial sense depends on what other cars you're considering. Compared with 4x4s such as the BMW X5 and Volvo XC90, the Allroad looks like a bargain, but next to the Volvo XC70 or the standard A6 Avant it's dear.

It's much the same story with fuel economy and insurance. Fair enough, things look favourable if you compare the Allroad with cars such as the X5 and XC90, but on the other hand, it is both less fuel-efficient and more expensive to insure than the equivalent A6 Avant.

Look at repair costs, and the picture's even less favourable. According to figures from Warranty Direct, not only are average repair costs on Audis among the highest - above BMW and Volvo, and only just below Mercedes – the hourly labour rate at dealers is also very high for servicing.
