Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

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.

Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Why should I buy C-Class instead of X1?
  • There is no comparison between x1 and c class because they are different segments the best way to compare is go to both showroom with your needs why you need a car and then test drive both and find out which is fulfilling your needs and then pick one and I can give examples;if there are more family members in your family then pick x1 because more space headroom and kneeroom is provided compared to c class and if u go offroading then chose x1 and it has all wheel drive and if more in city and rarely in bad And hilly places so take c class and if you are driving on your own then take bmw x1 because bmw is a drivers car and if you are sitting behind and are shoffer driven then choose c class.
  • If you do lot of Cross Country go for X1 otherwise sedan
  • Because C class is more comfortable
