The 2004 Audi A6 saloon was the company's first model to adopt the now familiar bold radiator grille. Offering more interior space than its main rivals and with a broad range of efficient diesel engines the Audi is a good choice if you want a roomy, yet economical executive saloon.

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

The 2004 Audi A6 saloon was the company's first model to adopt the now familiar bold radiator grille. Offering more interior space than its main rivals and with a broad range of efficient diesel engines the Audi is a good choice if you want a roomy, yet economical executive saloon. The interior finish is as close to perfect as it's possible to achieve and there is a huge range of options giving the A6 a hi-tech feel.

However, as is often the case with Audi, the ride is overly-firm which the optional air suspension only partly resolves, while the steering is light offering very little feedback on the road. In October 2008 the range was facelifted with subtle exterior tweaks (including LED rear lights) and more efficient engines.

What owners say...

 The sheer size of the thing. Its huge!! The boot is enough for 4 full size golf bags and trolleys with room for the shoes leftover!

 The Size, in particular the boot which is massive. No longer do I struggle to get in the car on a weekend away with my wife and two daughters and the luggage.

 Drive my daughter to university in Scotland (from Devon). We can fit all her stuff in the car and still arrive feeling like I've been sat on my favourite comfy chair for 8 hours. A relaxing and...
