The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.2
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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan swings to the masculine side of the pendulum and sharpens its driving appeal in the process.
