The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's the same V-6 blast to drive as the far more sexy A7, which makes the 2012 Audi A6 a little irrelevant for those not fixated on five seats or four cylinders. Riper and more mature, the latest Chrysler 300 has classically handsome looks and in the right versions, big rear-drive fun.
