Deal of the Day: Audi A6 Avant

Volvo recently revealed the V90, which will rival the Audi A6 Avant, BMW 5 Series Touring and Mercedes-Benz E-Class estate.

We’ve found a sizable discount off the A6 Avant, which is one of the Volvo’s key rivals and a four-star large executive estate car.

The car Audi A6 Avant 2.0 TDI Ultra SE

For

SE trim provides a sat-nav, leather seats, four-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, an electric tailgate and automatic lights and wipers.

The discount brings the A6 Avant down to the same price as a mid- to high-spec Ford Mondeo Estate, so it represents decent value.

Remarkably low running costs also keep things cheap – the A6 Avant 2.0 TDI Ultra achieves a claimed combined fuel economy of 62.8mpg and emissions of just 118g/km.

Against

The A6 suffers from numb steering and a ride that is a little more unsettled than we’d like.

It has also proven to be one of the less reliable among its segment, returning less-than-promising JD Power customer satisfaction survey results.

Should I add any options?

The comprehensive equipment offered on this A6 Avant means most people won’t need to add any options – just enjoy the £7798 saving.

What next?

You’ll find the discount at drivethedeal.com, just select Audi and A6 Avant from the drop-down menus, and select 2.0 TDI Ultra SE from the list of available specs.
