Review

The A6 is quiet, comfortable, spacious and an impressive luxury car all round, even if it isn’t quite as thrilling to drive as the class best

Trim: S6

Even the standard S6 is very well equipped. You get 20in alloy wheels, privacy glass, keyless start, leather seats (heated in the front), and a full infotainment suite with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two touchscreens, sat-nav, a DAB radio and Bluetooth. Visibility aids include a rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors and LED headlights.

Engine: S6 TDI 349 Quattro Vorsprung

The S6 doesn’t rev like a petrol, so the BMW 540i and Mercedes-AMG E 53 can both get from 0-62mph faster. However, a time of 5.1sec is anything but slow, and making swift progress is pretty effortless because of the diesel's huge torque that's available between 2000rpm and 4000rpm to push you along. The eight-speed automatic gearbox contributes to the car’s easy going character, doing a good job of keeping the engine within its ideal operating window.
