Which used Audi A6 Allroad estate should I buy?

Each of the four engines comes with just one trim level, but at least it's generous, with a good selection of luxury and safety equipment fitted as standard. Pretty much the only options you mighy try to find are an automatic gearbox, electric sunroof, leather upholstery and sat-nav.

Engine-wise, by far the most sensible options are one of the two turbodiesels, preferably the more powerful 180bhp version. Not only are they more economical than the petrol engines, their stronger low-down pull is just what you want in a car that's likely to be carrying heavy loads or towing. And, as if that wasn't already enough to sway you, they're also in lower insurance groups.

That's not to say the two petrol engines are bad, though. On the contrary, both rev sweetly and perform well, even with an automatic gearbox. It's just that they do nothing to justify their higher running costs.
