The Top Gear car review:Audi A6 Avant
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
Once again, this is where Audi does an exceptional job, because Audi interiors are really very well done. All cars get the MMI Virtual Cockpit touchscreen system (8.8-inch touchscreen in the top of the dash, with another 8.6-inch version underneath for other functions, as well as the screen in the instrument binnacle), heated electric seats, steering wheel controls, climate control, a decent stereo (a Bang & Olufsen is optional), extended start/stop (as part of the mild-hybrid system) and various other systems.
It’s comfortable for five, easily swallowing proper-sized adults in the back, and there’s generous and convenient boot space, with a low load lip - important if you’re constantly slinging stuff in and out. Overall, you just feel like this car would make your life just that little bit easier.
