Review

The Audi A6 Avant is a comfortable, quiet and technologically advanced estate that's beautifully built. A BMW 5 Series Touring is better to drive and has a more user-friendly infotainment system, though.

get the best price

Based on S line, Black Edition adds 20in alloy wheels, black exterior detailing with tinted rear windows and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. We wouldn’t bother as the big wheels don’t do the ride any favours.

When specified with the 335bhp 55 TFSI 3.0-litre petrol engine, the A6 responds enthusiastically whenever you ask for a burst of acceleration cracking 0-62mph in 5.1sec. However, the diesels will be much cheaper to run, and so will the similarly lively plug-in hybrid if you top up its batteries fairly regularly. Although claimed economy is mid-thirties, you’ll have to drive very carefully to crack 30mpg.
