The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The Audi A6's pedals – like those in the BMW 5 Series – are a little offset to the right, but unlike its rival it has electric lumbar adjustment as standard and a fully electrically adjustable driver’s seat from S line trim to give you loads of tweaking capability. Combined with generous steering wheel rake and reach adjustment, that means you should have no trouble getting comfortable before a trip. Even after a long motorway drive, you are likely to be free of twinges, although a brisk back-route blast might have you wishing for a bit more side support during cornering.

As standard, you get Audi’s Virtual Cockpit consisting of digital dials on a 12.3in screen. They're excellent, and there are lots of options for configuring the content and layout to show a wealth of useful information just below your sightline.

Visibility, parking sensors and cameras

You won’t struggle to see out of the A6. Its front pillars are thinner than many of its rivals' and the generous rear side windows really open up your over-the-shoulder vision. The BMW 5 Series is also pretty good in that respect, but the Mercedes E-Class has thicker rear pillars that spoil your view a bit.

To make matters even easier, all A6s come with front and rear parking sensors, as well as a rear-view parking camera. You also get LED headlights as standard, and in S line trim they are clever adaptive units that allow the main beams to remain on without dazzling oncoming cars.

If you opt for the Comfort and Sound pack, you’ll get a 360-degree camera system to make parking even easier.
