The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Audi A6 mid-size luxury sedan or wagon is reserved but flexible in its powertrain offerings and body styles. The 2021 BMW 5-Series pushes all the right buttons for mid-size luxury shoppers. And there are a lot of them. The 2021 Volvo S90 and V90 argue for luxury-car status with rational performance and style.
