Audi A6 Avant: A mountain of an executive estate

Audi A6 Avant
Here's a very nice driving report of the Audi A6 Avant from UK, one of the most beautiful cars Audi has ever built and one of our favorites.
The ride was never less than polished and unflustered, thanks in part to the optional air suspension which sets buyers back a hefty £1,500. Less impressive was the Tiptronic semi-automatic gearbox on our model which proved sluggish through the ratios and slow in response to throttle inputs but did add to the relaxed, languid driving experience. The 3.2 FSI engine’s usual surging performance was noticeably blunted by all the extra weight on board but, while the official 7-second 0-60mph time would be unattainable without considerable load lightening, it was still quick enough.
The A6 Avant’s cabin is a great place to sit out a long journey. The quality of materials, fit and finish is exemplary while the control interface is intuitive in a way that rival prestige manufacturers could learn much from.

This week in the mountains showed Audi’s offering to be a mountain of an executive estate.
