What Car? says...
Many modern estate cars are so-called ‘lifestyle' models – which essentially means they have sleek looks and a posh badge, but are more suited to transporting terriers than wolfhounds. Not the Audi A6 Avant, though.
True, it is blessed with handsome looks and an upmarket badge, but, because it’s based on the A6 luxury saloon, it’s a big and genuinely practical choice. There are several petrol and diesel engines to choose from, and there's also a sporty Audi S6 model that we review separately.
This latest A6 Avant also has an efficient range of engines and cutting-edge infotainment and autonomous driving technology borrowed from the much pricier Audi A8.
How does it compare with other posh estates, such as the BMW 5 Series Touring, Mercedes E-Class Estate and Volvo V90, though? That’s what we’ll be exploring in this Audi A6 Avant review, plus we’ll outline the versions that make the most sense and the options you might want to add.
If, after reading all about it, you do decide to buy one – or indeed a new car of any make and model – remember that we can help you to save potentially thousands of pounds on the price by checking out the free What Car? New Car Buying service. It could save you a small fortune without any awkward haggling, and there are lots of good deals on new Audis.
