The Audi A6's mid-life update makes the car a high-quality sedan that could very well top its class.

A little while ago, the Editorial Team had the pleasure of getting cosy with the crowned head of the Audi A6 family, the Audi RS6 Avant, which had been given a facelift along with the rest of its siblings.

Now in its fourth generation, the new A6 range remains as Audi's top-selling fleet of cars and was first introduced to us in Munich and at the Audi Driving Experience a couple of months ago.

Since the RS6 Avant has pretty much rocked our socks off, will its littlest brother impress? For starters, this 1.8 TFSI Ultra S-tronic comes with a new drivetrain and a suite of intelligent features that is a testament to the marque's ethos, Vorsprung durch Technik.

Updates to the A6 grant it an effortlessly chic appearance

Up close and Personal

Styling changes on the A6 are subtle and may require an Audi connoisseur to pick out. To keep things looking sharp and fresh, the exterior of the car receives opulent changes to its Singleframe grille, head lights, air inlets, bumpers, side sills, rear lights and tailpipes.

Along with Matrix LED technology in the head lights and dynamic turn signals that come standard across the range, the beautifully contoured A6 is more aggressively stanced and rid of the garden-variety, German executive sedan image. In doing so, Audi has added an air of snootiness to the A6, one that should keep the design teams of rival brands on their toes.

This crisp and clean design extends into the car's spacious and well-crafted interior that does not compromise on quality. Combined with a relatively narrow windscreen pillar design and sweeping dash, the cabin of the A6 strikes the perfect balance of elegance and practicality.

At a length of almost five metres, this is a fairly large car, with a plush and accommodating interior matched with an ample 530 litres of boot space.

Audi's MMI system offers an intuitive user interface

And that's barely the tip of the iceberg. You will find that Audi's latest power-retractable 8.0-inch infotainment system is taking the fight to the Bavarians. The MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch is user-friendly and easily offers one of the best navigation experiences in the business.
