Introduction

Audi introduced the face-lifted A6 earlier this year to keep things fresh in its mid-sized executive sedan offering.

This segment has traditionally been hugely contested and just about sets the benchmark for a car that finds balance between luxury and performance. How does that work?

Simply put, a mid-sized executive sedan isn't large enough to cause massive handling challenges but still packs enough space and amenities to please senior management types. Many interesting things have come out of this segment; from a basic (relatively), entry level A6 all the way to the mad RS6 and BMW M5 type super saloons (and wagons).

So it's an important segment for many car makers, especially the German ones, where the competition is keenest. And because competition is stiff, Audi has stepped up its game and brought in a car with updates that will keep rivals shifting in their seats.

SwiftQuote was able to get me a quote in two days and it turned out to be the best quote in the end. I had listed the vehicle on another site for one month prior and was pleasantly surprised with a swift quote.

We have check others and no doubt this is the best! From the prompt and reliable agent Angie to the honest dealer David, everything is 10/10. Other platform not only charges transactions fee the dealer will squeeze you below market rate.
