  • Audi A6 Avant (2011 - 2018)
    Refined and comfortable. 2.0 TDI is strong yet economical. More headroom than previous A6 Avant. 3.0 BiTDI is stunningly quick.
  • Audi A6 (2011 - 2018)
    Impressive cabin with a straightforward layout. Very quiet and refined on the move. Navigation and leather seats as standard. Efficient 2.0 TDI provides good performance.
