The Top Gear car review:Audi A6 Avant
Running costs and reliability
Residuals on A6 Avants have traditionally been strong - probably something to do with their Swiss-army knife characteristics. It’s the kind of car that really is superbly competent, and although it isn’t the kind of thing you’d sell your soul to own, it’s well made and well thought out, combining practicality with a little bit of luxe.
It’s a cliché to describe it as the perfect family car, but there’s not much that beats a decent large estate for coping with everything that kids and dogs and ridiculous amounts of luggage can throw at it. If you avoid getting too deep into the options list - at which point an A6 Avant can get into serious amounts of cash - then you’ll have a car you find yourself relying on for everything.
