Compare Audi A6 to BMW 5 Series & Mercedes-Benz E-Class


Find Out How the Audi A6 Stands a Step Above its Luxury Competitors

The luxury vehicle market is, by far, one of the most competitive segments of the automotive industry. It's not hard to see why. Centered around expensive cars with top-class features, the pool of drivers who can afford them is smaller. That means that every car in this class that hits the road is competing for the attention of drivers who are less likely to be impressed by the standard tricks of the trade.

That's why cars like the Audi A6 aim to deliver more. Audi knows its customers want the best of the best. That's why they've fashioned the A6 to be a car that delivers a little of the best of everything. If you want performance, it delivers. If creature comfort is your preference, you'll find plenty of it. No matter what you're looking for in a luxury car, the A6 deserves your attention.

We know, however, that it's not the only car that is. Competitors like the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class also deliver excellent driving experiences designed to rival cars like the Audi A6. The big question, of course, is which one delivers the best overall package?
