The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Audi S6 stands with an impressive hand: quality interior, great performance, functional shape. It's possible to find better examples from other cars, but they all cost significantly more. The 2018 BMW 5-Series expands the sedan's already-excellent lineup to include an efficient plug-in hybrid and an uber-quick V-8. The 2018 Jaguar XF lives its best life in Sportbrake form; the turbo-4 emerges here in untested form.
