The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron. If you appreciate luxury and complex engineering solutions, then you'll love the 2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
