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

Entry-level Sport trim is all you really need, with electric front seats, four-way lumbar adjustment, LED headlights, 18in alloy wheels, leather seat trim, dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, ambient LED interior lighting and keyless go. The standard infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, sat-nav, Bluetooth, a DAB radio, an 8.8in touchscreen and a punchy 10-speaker stereo.

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.
