Reviewers from autocar have found:
The A6 is born for straight and true highways. But what about on the pockmarked British B-road? There’s plenty of opportunity to find out in the bucolic Surrey Hills. The supple ride from the adaptive air suspension contributes to the calm. The eight-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox is a marvel once moving.
  • Comfortable ride
  • Impressive infotainment system
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Noisy on B-roads
  • No automatic gearbox

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
All-new fifth-generation model bundles all the tech, refinement and luxury of the saloon into a more family-friendly estate body. Two trim levels will make up the A6 Avant range in the UK: Sport and S-Line. The 2.0-litre motor is well isolated from the cabin, delivering adequate performance for a family car.
  • Luxurious interior
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent tech
  • Not as practical as rivals
  • Not the most practical

Reviewers from carmagazine have found:
New Audi A6 Avant joins the firm's ever-expanding range. Debuts with two diesel engines and confusing names. Offers vast interior passenger space, a practical rear end, and all the kit you can find on the more expensive A7 and A8 and some punchy powertrains.
  • Powerful diesel engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Lots of standard equipment
  • Noisy gearbox
  • Not as responsive to drive as a BMW 5er
