2008 Audi S6 vs. Its Competition

2008 Audi S6 4-door Sedan Angular Rear Exterior View
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Each of Audi’s prime competitors offers a hotted-up large sedan.

The BMW M5 is the closest competitor in specs, as it’s also powered by a V-10 engine.

The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG has brilliant V-8 power, while both the Cadillac STS-V and Jaguar XF Supercharged add supercharger boost to get to these stratospheric levels of power.

Quick Specs
8.8
The 2008 Audi S6 offers driving thrills that few sedans can match -- and a V-10 heart that would be right at home in a Lamborghini.
7.8
The 2009 Cadillac STS-V is a more affordable rival to BMW's M5 and the Mercedes E63 AMG, with an overall look and feel that isn’t quite up to the standards of those German rivals.
9.0
The 2009 Jaguar XF is an easy car to love. It performs as well as anything in the class--and has unexpected glamorous touches that will win over converts.
8.2
The 2008 BMW M5 has electrifying performance, but is saddled with an overdose of technology and a body in need of a few nips and tucks.
