Used Car: 2010 Audi A6 Wagon Review
The 2010 A6 Avant stands out in the class with ample cargo space, standard all-wheel drive and high safety and reliability scores.
The 2010 A6 Wagon, which Audi calls the A6 Avant, came with a supercharged six-cylinder engine, an automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Test drivers said the A6 Avant’s engine is refined, and they liked how the automatic transmission’s smooth downshifts when more power is needed. The A6 Wagon gets 18/26 mpg city/highway, which is average for the class. Test drivers said the all-wheel drive system helps on slick roads, and that overall, the A6 Avant has sporty handling.
In general, reviewers liked the 2010 A6 wagon’s luxurious interior, though some complained that the seats were firm. Additionally, many thought that Audi’s MMI infotainment system was difficult to use. Cargo space with all the seats in use is 33.9 cubic feet, which is high for the class. Standard features include a sunroof, leather upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, a six-disc CD changer, heated front seats, Bluetooth and satellite radio. Available features include adaptive headlights, a rearview camera, navigation, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
Other Cars to Consider
The 2010 Volvo V70 is only available with front-wheel drive, but it has more cargo space and comparable fuel economy to the Audi A6 Avant. Additionally, reviewers liked the V70’s comfortable and supportive seats and the simple controls.
The 2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon offers a choice of two six-cylinder engines, and the CTS Sport Wagon gets similar fuel economy to the A6 Avant. Rear-wheel drive came standard on the Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon, but AWD is available.
