The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer. Brilliance takes many forms in the Audi A6: the diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or the turbocharged S6 all stand out in ways the sedate body doesn't quite match.
