What Car? says...
In an increasingly homogenised world, the biggest difference between rival products is often how they're marketed, but that's not the case for the Audi A6 and its rivals.
The A6 sits at the more affordable end of the luxury car class and needs to get its elbows out to hold its own against some genuinely accomplished cars, all with their own unique selling points.
Why settle for a mere mild hybrid when you can go for a full-on plug-in hybrid, though? The 50 TFSIe is fitted with a chunky battery pack that lets you run on electricity alone for mile after mile. Naturally, that cuts the CO2 emissions massively, making it a particularly appealing option if you pay company car tax.
Over the next few pages, this review will look at what the Audi A6's strengths and weaknesses are, and reveal which of the engines and trims we think are best. We'll also let you know what it's like to drive, how much it will cost to run, how it compares with its luxury car rivals and much more.
If you decide at the end that it's the car for you, or you plan to buy a vehicle of any make and model, don't forget to visit the free What Car? New Car Buying service to see how much you could save off the list price and check out the Audi A6 deals.
