Used Audi A6 For Sale
The Audi A6 is a premium executive saloon that is ideal for established families or those who spend a lot of time on the motorway.
Occupying the middle ground between the popular A4 and the A7, the A6 offers a great blend of practicality and refinement. The distinctive appearance is sure to hit the right notes for some motorists, while the interior design is stunning in its design.
Here are a handful of reasons the Audi A6 makes a great used car buy:
- Very refined
- Loaded with technology
- Efficient range of engines
- Elegant appearance
Engines and Driving Experience
The Audi A6 is an incredibly refined car, making it a great companion on long distance journeys. However, the A6 isn't quite as sharp to drive as something like a BMW 5 Series.
That isn't to say the A6 struggles in corners though; it produces a lot of grip, which inspires confidence when driving. This is further enhanced in models fitted with the company's Quattro all-wheel drive system.
Petrol / Hybrid
- 40 TFSI: 2.0-litre producing 201bhp (0 to 62mph in 7.3 seconds and up to 39.2mpg)

- TFSI 55 e plug-in hybrid: 3.0-litre producing 362bhp (0 to 62mph in 5.6 seconds and up to 217.8mpg with fully charged batteries)
- 40 TDI: 2.0-litre producing 201bhp (0 to 62mph in 8.1 seconds and up to 52.3mpg)
- 50 TDI: 3.0-litre producing 282bhp (0 to 62mph in 5.4 seconds and up to 40.4mpg)
Practicality and Running Costs
Essentially, the A6 is a bigger version of the A4, which means there is more legroom in the back of the car for taller adults. The rear doors open nice and wide, making it easy to fit and remove a child's seat via the ISOFIX anchor points.
Rated at 530 litres, the A6's boot is more than ample enough for weekly shops and transporting bulkier items. Avant models, which is Audi's name for an estate, get 565 litres of luggage capacity, which is made more accessible thanks to the large opening tailgate.
It's worth nothing that the plug-in hybrid model does sacrifice boot space to make way for the batteries, meaning you only get 360 litres to play with.
Insurance premiums should be similar to rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, with the A6 starting in group 35 out of 50. The more powerful models do occupy higher groups, so it's worth budgeting extra for them. Servicing and maintenance can be completed through your nearest Evans Halshaw retailer.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Audi always achieve high scores when it comes to interior design, because the quality materials they use really complement the elegant overall design.
A configurable digital instrument cluster, known as Virtual Cockpit, is available on most A6 models, and is well worth keeping an eye out for. You can choose the driving information you want to see, and even display a colour 3D map.
All versions of the A6 are well-equipped. Entry-level Sport models come with two high-resolution touchscreens in the dashboard, and also get dual-zone climate control, a rear-view camera and heated front seats.
S line models are a popular choice because they have 19-inch alloy wheels, sports seats and Matrix LED headlights. Meanwhile, top-spec Vorsprung cars benefit from all-wheel steering, adaptive air suspension, a panoramic sunroof and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.
Safety features and driver aids available on the A6 include:
- Audi Drive Select
- Cruise control and speed Limiter
- Audi Parking Assistance Pack
- Lane departure warning
- Pre sense front (monitors the traffic in front for potential hazards)
Is the Audi A6 right for me?
The A6 is a fine all-rounder with a premium finish throughout, making it a great choice if you do quite a bit of mileage on A-roads and motorways. A stunning interior design complements the refined drive perfectly, while the wide array of engines mean you have plenty of choice when searching for your ideal car.
As is tradition, Audi face stiff competition from fellow German manufacturers, Mercedes-Benz and BMW. The former offer the E-Class, which is an elegant choice with a similarly impressive interior, while BMW produce a fine driver's car in the form of the 5 Series.
