Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi A6 estate?

The BMW 5 Series Touring has long been the benchmark estate in this class. It’s plush enough inside to compare with just about any other car on sale. It has a spacious, well-appointed interior and it’s great to drive, with a refined and economical range of engines.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate has a range of smooth and strong engines, a supple ride and a generous amount of standard equipment. It’s good to drive, if not up to the 5 Series’ exceptional level. Its boot is simply huge.

  • Top-notch refinement
  • Loads of space
