The all new Audi A6 has been named Best Executive Saloon at the 2011 Auto Express New Car awards, the first award the new generation model has received.
Graham Hope, Acting Editor of Auto Express, said: "The new A6 has wasted no time in demonstrating its abilities, having seen off a whole host of talented and desirable rivals to secure class honours in this competitive sector. The car's stunning cabin, excellent engines and sharp dynamics set a benchmark for other to beat."
Amy Wand, Audi UK's Product Manager for the Audi A6 Saloon, said: "We're delighted that the A6 Saloon has picked up its first award so soon after its launch, reinforcing the fact that it really sets the benchmark in its class for luxury and refinement. With such a wealth of innovative technology - which was long-reserved for the premium D segment – combined with advancements in lightweight construction and engine efficiency, the A6 has remained true to our 'Vorsprung durch Technik' philosophy, proving exactly why it is the class best-seller in Europe."
Prices for the Audi A6 Saloon start at £30,145 on the road for the 2.0 TDI 177PS SE model, rising the £41,640 for the top of the range TFSI 300PS S line with quattro all-wheel drive.
