The A6 offers superb build quality and refinement wrapped in a suitably understated body with a flawless finish. It may look a little plain compared to rival offerings but the Audi has plenty of strong points.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

The A6 offers superb build quality and refinement wrapped in a suitably understated body with a flawless finish. It may look a little plain compared to rival offerings but the Audi has plenty of strong points. It's safe and reassuring to drive with precise handling, plus it's comfortable and roomy. There's a good choice of engines including a frugal diesel, but whichever model you go for, reliability and longevity are assured.

There's also a performance version, badged RS6, that's powered by a 4.2-litre V8 engine.

 It's a very comfy car with all the toys, lots of rear leg room and a massive boot.
