The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up.
