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

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.

In this entry-level 201bhp 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 with 0-62mph taking 8.1sec, and more efficient than the equivalent BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class in real-world conditions. Automatic only, but available with front or four-wheel drive.
