Audi A6 saloon 2.0 TDI ultra first drive review

As a complete package this car is hard to beat.

Autocar give the most detailed review available online covering performance, ride and handling, design, interior and economy.

The new Audi A6 ultra is a fleet-focused version of the manufacturer’s BMW 5-series and Mercedes E-class rival.

Audi’s ultra variant of its luxury saloon benefits from both a comparatively inexpensive purchase price and low emissions, offering company car operators significantly more appealing monthly costs.

In fact the new ultra variant is the least costly model in the A6 range, with prices starting at £32,515. Key upgrades include a new 187bhp 2.0-litre diesel and the adoption of a revised seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which replaces the eight-speed CVT found in four-cylinder diesel A6s.

We tested the more costly £34,365 S line variant – which features Xenon headlights, LED rear lights, sports suspension and larger 18-inch wheels compared to the standard SE model – but, even so, those in the 40 per cent tax band will pay a sensible £2470 per annum in company car tax.
