The A6 is the definition of a mild-mannered executive sedan. At first glance it looks remarkably similar to the larger A8, which is no bad thing, but on closer inspection you can spot the differences. I actually think the A6 stands as Audi's best-designed sedan.
The angular LED headlights positioned upfront, either side of the enlarged gloss black grille, give it an imposing look. The side profile is easy on the eye, too, with a more-defined waistline and larger wheel arches which are nicely filled by a set of smart-looking 20-inch alloys. It suggests a family sedan car with a whiff of performance.
Our test car included the S line exterior package ($1600), which brings front and rear bumpers with honeycomb inserts, matt titanium black inserts side air inlet grilles and platinum grey inserts, a rear diffuser in the same black, side sill trims, and illuminated aluminium door sill trims with S logo at the front.
The interior is all class, headlined by three digital screens across the dash and driver's binnacle which operate the media and air con. It’s an impressive array. Screen clarity is excellent as is usability.
Leather abounds throughout the cabin, with the front seats a particular standout – they look exceptional and provide an incredibly comfortable place to spend time in.
