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

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.

This 282bhp 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine is even smoother than the four-cylinder 40 TDI and stronger across its entire rev range, but it's somewhat hamstrung by its eight-speed automatic gearbox, which is hugely reluctant to change down. Despite that, it manages 0-62mph in just 5.4sec and has official economy in the low 40s. It costs a fair bit extra to buy, though.
