The Audi A6 is a large executive vehicle available in saloon and estate (called Avant) model. The current model is the fifth generation in the A6 line, and was launched in 2018.

All A6 models have mild hybrid engines as standard. This means that a small electrical motor can power many of the car’s systems but can’t drive the vehicle itself. There is also the A6 allroad model, which has a beefed-up body and improved ground clearance for off-road driving, at which it is most capable and better than many luxury SUVs.

The Audi A6 has received consistently good to very good scores from the UK media since its launch, with particular praise for its interior space, comfort and refinement. As of March 2021, its Expert Rating score of 80% is several points behind the class-leading BMW 5 Series and also the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, but just ahead of the Jaguar XF.
