Many modern estate cars are so-called ‘lifestyle models’; an expression that basically means they have sleek looks and a posh badge, but are more suited to transporting Yorkshire terriers than Irish wolfhounds. Not the Audi A6 Avant, though.

Okay, it’s blessed with the aforementioned looks and badge, but because it’s based on the A6 luxury saloon, it’s a big and genuinely practical choice.

This latest A6 Avant also promises efficient mild hybrid engines, rear-wheel steering to improve manoeuvrability and cutting-edge infotainment and autonomous driving technology borrowed from the much pricier A8. So, how does it compare with rivals such as the BMW 5 Series Touring, Mercedes E-Class Estate and Volvo V90?

That’s what we’ll be exploring in this review, plus we’ll outline the versions that make the most sense in the showroom and the options you might want to add.
