The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Audi A6 is a mid-size luxury sedan that skips flash and fast for a comfortable ride with an understated exterior. The 2018 Lexus GS is a worthy rival to its German foes in terms of luxury and handling, but its engine lineup is falling behind the competition.
