TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2020 Audi A6 is as good as mid-size luxury sedans get—for those still shopping sedans. The 2019 BMW M5 sedan is a high-performance luxury car without compromise and few rivals. The 2020 Volvo S90 is a mid-size luxury sedan that's an antidote for buyers wary of the German same-ness.
