Audi A6 Sedan Review - Audi Reviews South Africa
Audi is renowned for diesel engines and the A6 is a great example of why. Our favourite model has a 168bhp 2.0-litre TDI engine that gives very respectable performance, but still averages the best part of 100km/h. It's not the cheapest model, but we think it's worth paying for.
On the other hand, anyone who's buying with company money may well be attracted by the 2.0-litre TDIe models, which have emissions of just 139g/km and a consequently low tax liability.
The petrol engines, meanwhile, are still pretty strong and will suit drivers with lower annual mileages - they aren't as frugal as the diesels and don't have such strong residuals, but they are much cheaper to buy.
Whatever model you buy, you'll be getting one of the biggest cars in the executive class, backed up with superb build quality, plenty of equipment (for us, SE is the best balance of cost and kit) and a maximum five-star crash-test rating from Euro NCAP.
Pro's and Con's
Pro: The A6 is a smart, spacious saloon with real quality. The cabin is beautifully built and well appointed, while the engines are reasonably frugal.
Con: The Audi A6 isnít as classy as a BMW 5 Series or as good to drive as a Jaguar XF, and the margins arenít slim on either count.
