This is the new Audi A6 Avant, a crucial new model for Audi UK as the current car makes up 43% of A6 sales here in Blighty. The new Audi A6 Avant is bigger, lighter and better all round than the model it replaces.

Important stuff first – how big is the boot on the new Audi A6 Avant?

We’ll get there in a moment, but first let’s mention the optional ‘gesture-controlled’ boot lid. We quote: ‘a particular movement pattern below the rear bumper activates the system and the hatch opens automatically’. 
Quite what weird movement you have to make around the back of your A6 we don’t know, but once you’ve gestured to the rear hatch to open – and it has – inside you’ll find a boot that boasts 565 litres of carrying capacity. Alas that’s exactly the same capacity as the existing A6 Avant, and with the seats folded down the 1680 litres on offer is only 20 more than the current car. Blame the sloping D-pillars for the lack of any worthwhile increase in boot space.
The rest of the Avant’s interior is standard A6 fare… which means top-notch build quality, class-leading materials, and the same massively improved user interface that’s shared with the A7.
