  • Audi A6 Avant (2005 - 2011)
    Stunning looking and practical executive estate. At its best with quattro 4WD and the excellent 3.0 TDI engine.
  • Audi A6 (2004 - 2011)
    High quality and refined cabin. Good engines including frugal TDI diesels. Maximum five-star crash test rating. Classy image.
