The NEW A6 3.0 Diesel Quattro
Great so far!
I sometimes have the privilege of driving newer cars for an extended period of time. I did this with the 5-series, E-Class, and now the new Audi A6.
Firstly, it looks fantastic! It is a head turner wherever you go! Performance is great as well. The pick-up is smooth and fast, and the top speed that I reached was 254 km/h (even though the statistics said that it would not go further than 244 km/h). This is on the Germany Autobahn.
I am not so sure about the reliability, since I have only had this car for 5000km. I am sure that they have improved a lot from the previous model, but then again it just came into the market so there are properly several problems that will be uncovered at later stages.
The fuel consumption is tremendous! If, however, you use the cruise control on the highway you could get approximately 7 liters for 100 km.
I won't have the car much longer so I will post any update I may have in the meantime.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
