Compared to the outgoing model it weighs up to 70kg less depending on the engine, thanks to extensive use of aluminium.

The most fuel efficient unit is the 2.0 TDI with 174bhp and when paired with a manual gearbox delivers 56.5mpg. Top of the range 3.0 TDI with twin-turbo technology delivers 308bhp, taking the A6 Avant to 62mph in 5.4sec and to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph.
