Before you buy a Audi A6 in Uganda

by Edwin

The Audi A6 is an executive car made by the German automaker Audi AG, now in its fourth generation. As the successor to the Audi 100, the A6 is manufactured in Neckarsulm, Germany – and is available in sedan and wagon configurations, the latter marketed by Audi as the Avant. Audi's internal numbering treats the A6 as a continuation of the Audi 100 lineage, with the initial A6 designated as a member of the C4-series, followed by the C5, C6, and the C7. The related Audi A7 is essentially a coupé-hatchback version of the C7-series A6, but is marketed under its own separate identity and model designation.

Importing a foreign Used Audi A6 from Japan or other parts of the world

In case if you prefer to import your own Audi A6 from say Japan or from Europe, things change a bit. First it would require you to find a trusted dealer or seller in that regard, determine your specific car features and requirements, expected budget you plan to spend on buying the car and well calculated taxes to be paid to the tax authorities in order to clear Land Rover Defender.

It is also very important to examine the car upon arrival to check and see if all the car components are included in the car as it was shown to you before buying it. You need to watch out for car spare tires, car jack, radio, navigation systems, window buttons among other things as compared to the vehicle previews shown to you by the car dealer abroad.

The taxes charged by the Uganda Revenue Authority include Import Duty, Value added (VAT), Withholding Tax, Environmental Levy, Infrastructure Levy, and Registration Fees basing on the CIF of the Audi A6 from Japan.

On arrival to Kampala, Uganda, you will have to clear the taxes at The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), apply and pay for a number plate and then the third party license. You will also notice the some of these charges or fees differ from other vehicles.

General Audi A6 reviews for Uganda

The Audi A6 isn't the most exciting car to look at, but it remains one of the most elegant and appealing designs in the executive car class. Sharp lines and stylish touches give it a classy feel. Some people might find it a bit too staid, and you could be forgiven for mistaking the car for the larger A8 or smaller A4 from Audi’s range.

Entry-level SE versions of the A6 come fitted with cruise control, as well as USB and auxiliary inputs, and Bluetooth. They also feature park assist, automatic lights and wipers, leather upholstery and a Google-powered sat-nav system. S line spec adds special interior trim, sports seats and Xenon lights.

Looking at the practicability, comfort and space we find that the latest Audi A6 is shorter than its predecessor, but it's also wider and more spacious. There's plenty of useful storage throughout the cabin, with large door bins and a deep cubbyhole with a lid between the front seats. Even though it’s shorter than the old A6, the current model is still a long car. It measures 4,933mm in length, compared to 4,936mm and 4,923mm for the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes E-Class respectively. The Audi is also 1,864mm wide and 1,468mm tall.

The A6 is a big car and there's plenty of space to get comfortable inside, with heaps of head, leg and shoulder room in the rear, even for tall adults. Plus, it doesn't feel as claustrophobic as some of its rivals, as the big windows let in a lot of light.
