The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Audi A6 still has elegance and agility in its corner, though 0-60 mph times and rear-seat room continue to lag the competition. The 2010 BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo hatch-wagon may puzzle some shoppers, but it knows how to entertain on the road and doesn't mind if you bring company.
