You won’t have much trouble getting comfortable behind the wheel of the 6. There’s a height-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar adjustment on all models, plus generous range to the rake and reach-adjustable steering wheel. Visibility is fine, too, with relatively slim windscreen pillars and large door mirrors, so you can pick out what’s coming up alongside you.
The 6 has one of the best infotainment systems among its immediate rivals. A crisp 8.0in touchscreen is standard, but you can also operate the system from a handy rotary controller and shortcut buttons located by the gearlever. Because the menus are thoughtfully designed, most functions are easily fathomable without having to resort to the manual, and every car gets sat-nav as standard. It misses out on some up-to-the-minute features, though, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are available with the Ford Mondeo and Skoda Superb.
Although the centre console is a bit flimsy, generally the interior has a welcome mix of high-grade materials and nicely damped switches. These lend it a plusher interior ambience than the cheaper-looking Mondeo, although it doesn’t feel quite so robust as the Superb.
