Engines in the A6 come with Audi’s new mild-hybrid technology, which features stop-start functionality that kicks in between 4.3 and 13.7 mph. In real-world driving, the MHEV technology reduces fuel consumption by up to 0.7 litres per 100 kilometers.

The TFSI e quattro engine combines the comfort and performance of an Audi with the efficiency of electric power. When the 252PS turbocharged petrol engine and the 105kW electric motor work together, to deliver a combined output of 299PS and 450Nm of pulling power – enough to go from rest to 62mph in just 5.5 seconds!

A6 TFSI e Sport

​Base cars get plenty of equipment as standard, with highlights including 18-inch alloy wheels, the previously-mentioned dual-screen infotainment system and the Virtual Cockpit display.

You also get Amazon Alexa functionality as standard, which allows you to use the voice assistant in the car just as you might through smart devices at home. 

A6 TFSI e S Line

S Line’s most notable addition is a full sport interior, along with a sporty exterior styling pack. You also get larger 19-inch alloy wheels in a contrasting grey colour and full Matrix LED headlights with dynamic rear indicators.

Sport suspension is also fitted as part of the S Line package, dropping the ride height and giving the car a sportier feel.

A6 TFSI e Sport

Black Edition cars get even larger 20-inch alloy wheels as well as a full black exterior styling pack which brings gloss black elements to areas such as the front grille and window surrounds. 

In addition, you also get a sporty flat-bottomed multifunction steering wheel as an addition to the cabin too. 

A6 TFSI e Vorsprung

As the tip-top trim, Vorsprung receives all of the bells and whistles you could possibly want. A full panoramic glass sunroof comes as standard, as do HD matrix LED headlights, a full Bang & Olufsen sound system and a range of driver assistance systems.

Audi’s Tour Pack is also added, which brings features such as adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition, among other touches. 

Interior design​

​The interior of the standard A6 is a smart place to be on its own, so it’ll come as no surprise that the cabin in the hybrid version is just as upmarket. High-quality materials sit alongside plenty of screens to deliver a clever combination of new-school tech and old-school fit-and-finish.

There’s plenty of legroom in the back too, while estate versions can deliver up to 405 litres of boot space rising to 1,535 litres with the rear seats folded flat. 

Exterior design

The exterior of this hybrid A6 is near-identical to that of the regular car, which is no bad thing at all as it’s a great piece of design. An excellent evolution of Audi’s design, it’s packed with telltale features such as the large front grille and sweeping roofline which are synonymous with cars from the German brand.

The LED headlights on the A6 TFSI e also help the car to stand out, while the dynamic lights at the rear really do make an impact at night too. 

Technology

The A6 is a car which is practically bristling with technology. When it comes to the cabin, you’ve got a dual-screen setup made up of two screens housed in the centre of the cabin. The top one deals with satellite navigation and media functions, while the lower one manages air conditioning and other climate functions. It’s a very impressive setup, and one which is remarkably easy to get on with too.

There’s also Audi’s excellent Virtual Cockpit display system, which sits in the place of the traditional dials. It’s configurable too, so you can get it to relay various bits of information such as the satellite navigation and media selection as well as ‘usual’ data such as speed and MPG. 

Performance

Meshing together petrol and electric performance is a great way of giving a car a little more punch while also helping in the economy and emissions departments. This A6 hybrid is available in two states of tune - badged 50 and 55 - with the former producing 249bhp and the latter 362bhp. They both use the same turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine, however, linked to an electric motor. 

Both cars can travel for up to 34 miles on electric power alone at speeds of up to 84mph. However, either one is no slouch, reaching 60mph from a dead stop in just 5.3 seconds. Charging will take around 2.5 hours via a domestic wallbox.

What is the Audi A6?

Audi has been on something of a crusade in refreshing its top-end luxury machines of late. Last year saw a new A8 and A7 grace the market — but it hasn’t stopped there.

Introducing the new Audi A6 — the latest fresh face to join the German firm’s line-up. Much like its larger siblings, it’s more an evolution of the luxury saloon concept than a revolution, but there’s a lot to shout about.

With the recent release of an updated BMW 5 Series and a now two-year-old Mercedes E-Class, Audi could be playing something of a game of catch up here. So, is the A6 up to that task?

What’s new about the Audi A6?

As is to be expected with the launch of an A6, there’s a lot of new stuff going on.

Most noticeably are its looks. It takes on the bolder design language introduced on the A8 — bringing a sleeker appearance along with a much wider grille and fresh headlights.

Under the bonnet, the A6 is the first-in-class to offer mild-hybrid technology across all of its engine choices as standard, while new suspension options have been introduced in an effort to create a more agile car.

As for technology, the A6 now features self-learning navigation which aims to create an optimal route based on your driving history; while centre console-based physical controls for functions such as air conditioning and audio controls have been replaced with a touchscreen using haptic feedback.

What’s under the bonnet of the Audi A6?

At its launch, the A6 will be available with a choice of three engines — one petrol and three diesels, all of which utilise mild-hybrid technology.

Our test car was fitted with the sole petrol option on offer. It’s a 3.0-litre V6 engine producing 335bhp and 500Nm of torque, here paired up with a seven-speed automatic gearbox that sends power through all four wheels.

It’s capable of taking the A6 from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds and can power the car on to an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph. At the time of writing official figures for MPG and CO2 emissions had yet to be confirmed.

It’s an extremely potent unit, delivering impressive and usable performance for a car weighing in at 1,825kg. Don’t expect supercar-levelling speed, but it’s more than enough for most needs while the gearbox pairs perfectly for a smooth experience under heavy acceleration or at a gentle cruise.

What’s the Audi A6 like to drive?

Audi has brought a lot of new technology in for the A6 in an effort to create a better a driving experience in all applications, but the results vary.

It’s at its most comfortable when cruising for long distances. Its plentiful power combines well with the introduction of air suspension to create a relaxing ride when eating up the miles — aided by little in the way of wind noise.

As for more spirited driving, the Audi A6 is capable of doing it with ease; it handles well and doesn’t kick up a fuss when pushed hard. It’ll take you around town with little fuss for a car of this size thanks to the addition of four-wheel steering which results in a more agile machine at lower speeds.


How does the Audi A6 look?

Audi are the experts, if not the pioneers in Russian doll car design — with each model taking after the last. The A6 is no exception to the rule, with the German firm’s updated design language as first introduced on the A8 making a strong impact on the A6’s own looks.

That means a hugely wide grille upfront with bold headlights sitting at either side, while a sleeker overall look is seldom interrupted by creases in the bodywork.

It’s a handsome thing to look at and has a presence of a car far bigger than it actually is in the flesh. You’re likely to turn heads in a big Audi anyway, but the striking design could do that without the four rings up front.

​What’s the Audi A6 like inside?

As you would expect on an Audi A6, it’s an incredibly plush place to be sat.

Premium materials feature right through the cabin without a scratchy plastic surface in sight, and it all feels good to the touch. We also suspect it’ll be pretty durable long-term.

The leather seats up front feel comfortable to be in, though they could benefit from a little more support.

Physical controls in the centre console for functions such as air-conditioning and seat heating/ventilation have been replaced by an 8.6-inch touchscreen that utilises haptic feedback. While this works well and responsively, it can be somewhat difficult to use when travelling at speed.rwise exceptional car.

What’s the Audi A6 spec like?

Full UK pricing for the Audi A6 starts from £38,640 for a seriously well-equipped package — though more expensive once the options list is explored.

Standard luxuries on the saloon include full LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, all-wheel drive, mild-hybrid technology and Audi’s MMI infotainment system displayed on a 10.1-inch touchscreen. As for safety assistance, there’s also pre-collision warning, parking sensors with a rear-view camera and cruise control.

Our S Line test machine also came with upgraded ‘Audi Matrix’ LED headlights and daytime running lights, 10mm lower suspension and a S Line styling package — while heated/ventilated seating was also included.


Verdict

The Audi A6 has all the hallmarks of a new class leader in the executive saloon segment. It offers a solid and potent range of engines, bags of technology and a comfortable experience wrapped in a handsome body.

We’d like to have a more engaging experience in harder driving, along with some more physical buttons inside the car — but these are minor annoyances in an othe
