View all Audi A6 reviews
Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The A6 scored reasonably well in the Euro NCAP crash tests - gaining three stars scored out of (at the time) a maximum of four. However, in today's context, that score looks average but clever features help protect occupants in crash situations, plus it comes with an alarm, immobiliser and deadlocks.

With the exception of the Mercedes Benz E-Class, the A6 is the biggest load carrier in its class with a wide boot that's easy to access. There's plenty of room inside too - especially for rear passengers while up front there's good storage with clever hinged door pockets.
