2010 Audi A6 Avant Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 1 review
From some angles, the 2010 Audi A6 Avant has a retro-chic feel with its familiar station-wagon lines. From behind the wheel, the A6 Avant offers turbocharged power and performance amplified by Audi’s all-wheel-drive Quattro system. From the passenger seat, you’ll surely notice the exquisite cabin details and all that room in the “way back.”
Stylish, classic, practical, and potent, the A6 Avant is an enticing hauling option for people and gear in the current sea of SUVs.
Audi redesigned all its A6 vehicles in 2009, the Avant included, so there are few changes for 2010. The most noteworthy change is the addition of real-time traffic information to the navigation system, as well as the most recent Multi-Media Interface (MMI) electronics control system, which critics report is much simpler to use than the old system.
The A6 Avant comes in just one trim, the 3.0T. The A6 sedan has three trims, each using a different engine, and all testers agree the 3.0T is the way to go. That’s because of the turbocharged 3.0-liter TSFI V6 engine that comes standard in the 3.0T trim, which produces 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque and delivers outstanding acceleration from a stop, at high speeds or anywhere in between. The A6 Avant comes standard with a six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission with a Dynamic Shift Program that allows for manual shifting when you’re feeling the urge to really push your A6 Avant.
All of the A6 Avant’s turbocharged power can be gracefully controlled and confidently directed with Quattro. Audi's highly praised all-wheel-drive system splits the power 40/60 between front and rear wheels during normal driving and can move the torque as needed when conditions dictate. The result is a road-gripping ride that can handle mountain curves, tight city streets, or piles of snow. And if you are loading the wagon with kids and toys for a weekend trip or week-long getaway, the A6 Avant consumes highway miles with ease.
You’ll be hard pressed to find another wagon or SUV, or luxury sedan for that matter, with a more refined cabin than the A6 Avant. The attention to detail is immaculate, the materials (especially the genuine walnut inlays) are exquisite, the technology is first-rate, and the overall ambience oozes understated luxury. Plus, the two-tone amaretto and black interior color choice is brilliantly dapper.
Standard features for the A6 Avant include 12-way powered and heated front seats, a Bose surround sound system with 13 high-performance speakers, Bluetooth, cruise control, HomeLink universal garage door opener, rearview camera, remote start, and the MMI Navigation plus system, which features a 7-inch, full-color LCD screen, a 40GB hard drive, and voice control.
The front seats for the A6 Avant are supportive and comfortable, somehow feeling snug and roomy at the same time, and are good for sporty driving or long trips. Three adults can reasonably fit in the rear seat, though the one in the middle may feel a bit squeezed if the ride lasts too long. There are 34 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row of seats and 59 cubic feet available with the second row folded flat. Audi also supplied the A6 Avant with tons of interior storage spaces and devices – divider nets, tie-down rings, a retractable floor, and more.
The A6 Avant comes with dual-stage, dual-threshold frontal airbags for the driver and passenger, as well as seat-mounted side airbags for the front seats, head protection airbags for the rear seat, and optional side airbags for the rear seats. It also comes standard with an electronic stabilization program, four-wheel antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, active head restraints, seatbelt pretensioners, tire pressure monitor, anti-theft alarm system, and a central locking system.
