Fleet World Fleet: Audi A6 Avant 40 TDI S line S tronic

Which options should A6 Avant would-be drivers opt for, ponders Julian Kirk.

Metallic paint is an essential option, but not so the 20-inch alloys and the privacy glass seems a bit steep

We didn’t tick many option boxes when speccing our A6 Avant, so which were the wise choices?

Metallic paint is a necessary option at £685, bucking residuals and improving on the rather uninspiring standard paint choice of flat white or flat black. The 20-inch alloys are an inch too far – the £910 upgrade impacting on ride quality (especially in the back seats). And charging nearly £500 for privacy glass seems a bit steep when it’s standard on cars such as the Q5.

Next time, we’ll look into the interior upgrades and run the same analysis.

P11d/BiK: £43,210 (32%) MPG/CO2: 60.1mpg (WLTP) /129g/km (NEDC Correlated) Test MPG: 37.3mpg
