Nearly new . The Audi A 6 is a large, comfortable saloon with a range of high-tech hybrid engines, but too many desirable features cost extra and it isn’t as much fun to drive as some alternatives.

To paraphrase Henry Ford, you can have any Audi A6 saloon of 2011-18 you like, so long as it’s diesel. In fact, make that a 2.0-litre diesel, or 2.0 TDI as Audi has it. We exaggerate, of course, but only a little. The fact is that A6 2.0 TDIs outnumber any other A6 saloon variants of the same generation by a huge margin.

It’s not surprising, given the A6’s target market and the company car tax structure when it was new. Then there’s the engine itself, which bows only to the BMW 520d in terms of civility. The 2.0 TDI Ultra, launched in 2014, is extremely economical, too.

Nearly - new buying guide : Audi Q3. © Autocar. Audi ’s Q3 is so well built and its styling so evolutionary that you have to ask yourself why you’d buy a brand-new second-generation model starting at £34,640 on the road when you could have an example of its predecessor, a 2013-reg

Built out of more lightweight materials than ever, the latest A 6 is faster yet more economical than ever while inside its incredibly classy cabin is chock full of all the gadgets you'd expect on a luxury car. There's a wide range of petrol and diesel engines, along with

This emphasis on diesel could seem less of a draw for used car buyers, whose mileage might not appear to justify choosing an oil-burner and for whom benefit-in-kind tax savings are irrelevant. However, for these people, there are still good reasons to choose an A6 2.0 TDI or its siblings, the 3.0 TDI and high-performance 3.0 BiTDI. They include the sheer pleasure to be gained from driving such a comfortable, well-appointed and well-engineered car that is also economical and inexpensive to tax. Perhaps of greater appeal, though, is that most A6s are attractively priced, not least because buyers are favouring SUVs over executive saloons.

How about £13,500 for a 2016- reg 2.0 Ultra SE Executive S tronic with 33,000 miles? And road tax is just £30. You want something meatier? A 2016-reg 3.0 TDI quattro SE Executive S tronic with 28,000 miles is £15,995, or a same-age and mileage 3.0 BiTDI quattro SE Tiptronic (its V6 produces 316bhp and 479lb ft of torque) is £19,995. These 3.0-litre engines are seriously muscular but the 2.0 TDIs are also powerful and serve most drivers perfectly well.

Those are the diesels, but if you hanker after a petrol, and have the patience to scour the classifieds for one, you’ll be rewarded by a choice of 2.0 and 3.0 TFSI engines (there’s a 2.0 TFSI hybrid but it’s as rare as hen’s teeth) and, later in the model’s life, a 1.8 TFSI. Prices start from £13,000 for a 2011-reg 3.0 TFSI quattro SE S tronic with 37,000 miles. Which just leaves the potent S6, a model that deserves its own guide and costs from £20,000 for a 2013-reg with 44,000 miles.

This fourth-generation A6 was facelifted in 2014, when it gained styling tweaks, upgraded infotainment and more efficient engines. A second refresh came in 2016 (additional equipment and technology, redesigned front air intakes and a restyled rear end).

Throughout, the core trims remained SE and S line, with the fully loaded Black Edition arriving in late 2012. SE is the most comfortable thanks to its smaller alloy wheels and steel springs. If your budget will allow, go for the post-2016-facelift SE with additional equipment.

Need to know

In the latest What Car? Reliability Survey, the A6 ranks fourth in its class, just ahead of the Mercedes E-Class, BMW 5 Series and Jag XF.

Condition-based servicing means A6s may have gone for up to 19,000 miles without an oil change – good for fleet managers’ bottom lines but not necessarily engines’ bottom ends.

The 2.0 TDI has a cambelt that must be changed every five years or 140,000 miles.

Larger wheels on S line trim upwards spoil the ride.

Revised cars from September 2014 have Euro 6-compliant engines. Check the V5 document for confirmation.

Our pick

Like the next Jaguar XJ, the BMW 7 Series will be available as an EVPerformance and battery details have yet to be released but it’s likely that the 7 Series EV will use a similar powertrain to the BMW iX3. The iX3 has two electric motors that provide all-wheel drive and are linked to a 70kWh battery pack for an output of 532bhp. Given that all the power in electric cars is available instantly, we expect the iX3 and the 7 Series to be blisteringly fast in a straight line.
