Handsome yet understated looks, excellent interior finish, class leading interior space


Steering lacks feel, not as cosseting as other executive saloons

Written by David Ross on

The 2004 Audi A6 saloon was the company's first model to adopt the now familiar bold radiator grille. Offering more interior space than its main rivals and with a broad range of efficient diesel engines the Audi is a good choice if you want a roomy, yet economical executive saloon. The interior finish is as close to perfect as it's possible to achieve and there is a huge range of options giving the A6 a hi-tech feel.

However, as is often the case with Audi, the ride is overly-firm which the optional air suspension only partly resolves, while the steering is light offering very little feedback on the road. In October 2008 the range was facelifted with subtle exterior tweaks (including LED rear lights) and more efficient engines.
