Our Fleet Test Drive: Audi A6 Avant - 4th Report

Date: 18 January 2012   |   Author:


BusinessCar's Audi A6 Avant isn't exactly the most basic of spec.

To get one of the first new Avants in the country, we had a car from Audi's demo fleet, which means one that's rather over-kitted - to the tune of, erm, more than £11,000 worth of options.

But many are rather welcome. For instance, I'm fond of some of the stations only found in the digital world, so the £410 DAB radio, controlled through the excellent 6.5-inch retractable screen, gets plenty of exercise. When I'm not listening to Absolute Radio 90s, I'll generally have podcasts or a shuffling iPod on, so the £260 it takes to have it connected through the audio system is money well spent too. Also welcome are the £390 heated seats, while the kid in me loves the powered tailgate that opens at the touch of a button. It's not cheap at £545, but is useful when juggling my child and shopping.
