The Audi A6 Avant: A different experience

Over the past couple of years, I’ve driven many different Audi SUVs; the Q2, Q5 and the Q7 among them. The Audi A6 Avant was going to be a different experience.  I hoped it would be a much more practical family vehicle than the Q7 yet more spacious than any of the other Audis I have driven. Without further ado, here’s what I thought.

Making the school run that bit easier

The school run is one of those aspects of parenting that causes me pain. Actually, that’s a bit harsh, the journey home in the evenings is often great fun with relaxed children who want to chat. The morning drop-off, well, that’s a different story.
