The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Audi A6 is as good as mid-size luxury sedans get—for those still shopping sedans. The 2020 BMW 5-Series is the goldilocks mid-sizer with a roundel on the hood: comfortable, powerful, and luxurious. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class promises better tech inside and more capability outside with the arrival of a lifted wagon.
