The roots of the Audi A6 can be traced to 1968 & the original Audi 100, then launched as a flagship rather than a mid-range model. That name endured through 4 distinct generations for 26 years. The 100 was then replaced 1994 by the first A6, although this was simply to bring the car into line with Audi’s newly adopted naming policy; the car itself was no more than a facelifted version of the 100. Now we’re on the fourth generation of the A6.
Avant: The Avant flaunts elegance combined with optimal adaptability to the demands of everyday life. This is a handsome, capacious estate car that’s at home pretty much anywhere.
Saloon: Versatility is at the heart of the A6 executive saloon. The company says this car simultaneously needs to purvey outstanding comfort for an old-school European market while offering a ‘sporty sedan’ to the Americans.
So, just how do you decide between an A6, a 5 Series & an E-Class? Well, given these 3 protagonists are so closely matched in almost every area that you really couldn’t make a bad decision. However, the thing that sets it apart is that whichever body style you choose with the A6, you’ll get a super-posh cocktail bar-like interior that beats all of its rivals hands down.
The result of scrupulous attention to detail & a determination to match or better its premium German competitors. If you’re looking for a posh saloon car with plenty of high-tech features & one seriously spacious cabin, then the Audi A6 should be right at the top of your shopping list.
