Review

The A6 is quiet, comfortable, spacious and an impressive luxury car all round, even if it isn’t quite as enjoyable to drive as the class best

get the best price

In this entry-level 2.0-litre diesel form, the A6 is a tad slow off the mark, but only because its standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox hesitates when you put your foot down. It's plenty brisk enough thereafter, though, and more efficient than the equivalent BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class in real-world conditions.
