Used Car: 2009 Audi A6 Wagon Review
The Audi A6 Avant was redesigned in 2009 and is a top pick among classmates for its large cargo space, standard all-wheel drive and high safety and reliability scores.
The Audi A6 wagon comes with a six-cylinder engine that is paired with an automatic transmission. The engine gets 18/26 mpg, which is just above average for the class. Auto reviewers liked the engine’s power and the transmission’s responsiveness. Test drivers said the all-wheel drive system makes the A6 Avant a top choice for its agility and composure while driving.
Reviewers liked the A6 wagon’s superb interior materials and attractive design. They also said the seats are comfortable, but a bit on the hard side. Most reviewers agreed that five adults fit easily inside, but for more comfort, just two adults should be in the back seat. Cargo space is high for the class with 33.93 cubic feet of room behind the back seat and 63.83 cubic feet with rear seats folded. Standard features include leather seating, power front seats with adjustable lumbar support, a sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, satellite radio and Audi’s multi-media interface. Features on higher trims or those that were optional when it was new are a back-up camera, keyless ignition, a navigation system, heated front and rear seats and a blind spot warning system. Several reviewers did not like Audi’s multi-media interface that was standard on all A6 wagons.
