Pros and Cons

  • Positives
  • Negatives

Audi A6

  • New flashy design to the interiors. Three coloured screens to cocoon you in the drivers cockpit. New chassis is quite agile and comfortable. Petrol is refined and powerful. Looks sharp.

Audi A6

  • No diesel option. Not really a chauffeur driven option. Not really exciting from behind the wheel either. Only one drivetrain option. Audi has also chosen to leave quattro all-wheel drive
  • all-wheel steering and the more powerful engines off the options list.
