Audi’s new A6 executive saloon has been given an even sharper driver focus for those that want it, with the addition of a new trim featuring 18-inch alloy wheels, lower sports suspension, sports seats and a visual makeover both inside and out.

The modifications come as part of a new trim called S line. Offered alongside the current SE specification, it adds new 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, sports suspension lowered by some 30mm, embossed part-leather sports seats, a leather-covered three-spoke steering wheel and gear knob, and brushed aluminium fascia inlays; it comes at an average £3000 premium. For a further £1100 (or £875 on 4.2-litre quattro models), Audi will add revised front and rear bumpers and a unique front grille featuring special S line badging, setting it apart from the standard car (right). All S line cars bar the entry-level 2.4-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel also inherit the range-topping 4.2-litre V8’s 17-inch vented discs for improved braking performance. The new range starts at £27,145 for a 2.4-litre petrol V6 S line, rising to £28,245 for the same car complete with exterior makeover; Audi’s 4.2-litre quattro A6 S line tops it off at £45,360 with the new bumpers and grille factored in.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
