    seems like a squeeze with 3 kids (young adults) and bikes etc all the way to south of france, i think you need bigger car, we have two small kids and drive to Austria and its FULL!

    Crispin has a point because big as the A6 is I also think you need something bigger. What sort of budget do you have ?

    TBH 7 seaters eat into load space so I do not think they would be any better unless you go for a Merc/VW mini bus style vehicle.

    well i had a similar issues a few years ago and i ended up with a toyota granvia (jap import) because you had 7 seats and a boot or 4/5 seats and bigger boot or in 30 mins could take seats out and had a van.
    being an import it had all the bells and whistles including electric curtains!!!




    i know not audi but to prove their is hope for any situation
    V8 baby... oh yeah

    no spare wheel in Smax just can of crap that will not fix the tyre and render it useless. Great idea for a car but if they think a family would not want a spare then ford are stupid!

    We had 4 bikes on the roof of our A6 saloon this summer, no problems at all. Leaves boot free for opening and closing....

    I didnt know that buddy sounds pretty stupid but believe it or not I was thinking about your post earlier.I think you should go for the A6 I mean why buy the car you dont want just for 1 or 2 holidays a year and I guess you could get a roofbox like this.
