Scorecard

Interior: 8.4

Reviewers are impressed by the A6 Avant's interior fit and finish, generally comfortable seats, and versatile cargo space. Some, however, take issue with Audi's Multi-Media Interface (MMI).

  • "The interior is a treat for the eyes and fingers, featuring attractive, high-quality materials in pleasing Earth tones. The amaretto and black two-tone interior in particular is a distinct departure from normally stoic German cabins and almost seems Italian." -- Edmunds
  • "The Audi A6 Avant has a richly appointed, bank-vault-silent interior..." -- Forbes

Seating

Auto writers find that the A6 Avant provides moderately comfortable seating for five.

  • "The supportive, firm seats are on the hard side, and visibility over the left shoulder is limited." -- Cars.com
  • "Five adults fit comfortably in the Audi A6 Avant, though the center passenger in the back might feel cramped." -- Forbes

Interior Features

The 2010 A6 Avant packs a wide array of standard, modern convenience features -- including a 10-speaker sound system with a six-disc CD changer in the glove box. Though it was improved in 2009, some critics still take issue with the A6's Multi-Media Interface (MMI) system.

  • "Inside, the electronics are improved. The A6 features the third-generation of Audi's Multi Media Interface (MMI). The changes are mainly internal. For example, there are now just two control units for the MMI instead of five or more. The graphics are somewhat more sophisticated, if not outstanding. There is a new joystick on top of the controller knob to let you navigate more easily. MMI is a complex system, but we'd argue that it remains more intuitive than BMW's iDrive. And although we like touch-screen displays, we greatly prefer this to any touch-screen system that blanks out functions while the car is moving. -- Car and Driver
  • "Audi's MMI system generates mixed reactions from our testers. Some say it's easier to use than BMW's iDrive, others do not. Regardless, it's still a distraction versus conventional switchgear. Other controls are handy and intuitive, but the CD changer resides in the glovebox out of easy driver reach." -- Consumer Guide
  • "All A6 sedans and Avant wagons come with the Multi Media Interface (MMI) vehicle management system, which controls entertainment, communication and optional navigation functions via the dash-mounted LCD screen and a large knob on the center console. We wouldn't go so far as to call it user-friendly, but you get used to it." -- Edmunds

Cargo

Critics, on balance, are pleased with the A6 Avant's practical cargo carrying design. In addition to about 33 cubic feet of storage space, its cabin features a full-length center console with storage box.

  • "The Avant wagon offers a spacious 34 cubic feet behind its rear seats and 59 cubes with them folded." -- Edmunds
  • "Audi has noodled feverishly to find ways to make hauling stuff more efficient: divider nets, a two-rail system with tie-down rings, a telescoping arm and attachment belt, and a retractable floor with a big cargo tray stowed below it for filthy things like your hiking boots and that stinky box of fishing lures. You can even program how high you want the rear hatch to extend when opened." -- Car and Driver
