Here at Creditplus we’ve just been made aware of a brilliant offer on Audi A6’s from a local franchised dealer, with over a 10% discount on the list price until March 2014. Thinking this could be an offer you’d be interested in but want to know a little more about the car first? Read on for our comprehensive review of the Audi A6.
The Audi A6 is most popular as a company car for those expecting to do high mileage. Luckily, the cost of lease or finance and overall running costs are very reasonable for the class of car. Low CO2 emissions means tax will be equally low, and resale values should be fairly decent, meaning there’ll be plenty of equity left in the car when you come to sell it. Choose the hugely popular 2.0l TDi and you’ll get plenty of miles to the gallon with a decent amount of power.
Whether or not you believe in the myth of German reliability, there’s no denying that buying an Audi is a pretty safe bet if you want a car that isn’t going to spend all its time in the garage. Scoring 5 out of 5 in WhatCar’s quality and reliability section, the Audi A6 is no exception. The standard three-year warranty that comes with new cars can be extended to a five-year warranty. If you’re buying an A6 on the second hand car market and it’s out of warranty it’s worth considering the purchase of an extended warranty – it can usually be obtained at a fair price, and the service given by Audi authorised mechanics comes highly recommended.
Buy the 2.0l TDi and you can expect to achieve an average 57.6mpg, brilliant news for drivers who expect to do lots of mileage. However, choose the top of the range S6 which comes equipped with a Bentley engine to embarrass some supercars and you’ll be looking at a significantly reduced 29.4mpg.
The Audi A6 is full of the most up-to-date safety specifications, sporting six airbags and stability control. It is awarded the maximum 5 star rating from Euro NCAP tests so safety is no worry. Choose rear-side airbags and a clever system that stops you from wandering from the lane on motorways as optional extras.
Comfort is a big one from any executive saloon that will predictably do plenty of miles. Luckily, Audi have kept the dash from getting too busy and distracting, but maintained a sense that you’re getting some brilliant technology in this car. With plenty of support and adjustment systems for the driver, and more than enough head and leg room for all passengers, Audi have excelled in terms of comfort. The trim is, as expected, top quality, including all the functionality and gadgets that you would come to expect from any modern car.
The Audi A6 is an often overlooked but viable choice in the executive saloon class. Up against the likes of the Jaguar XF and the BMW 5 Series its got some tough competition, but certainly holds its own.
