The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.3
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Plush, safe, and well-equipped, the 2018 Genesis G80 remains a pure luxury sedan, even as rivals get increasingly sporty. The 2018 Audi A6 is a conservatively styled, but handsome mid-size luxury sedan. It lacks the bells and whistles others now offers, but holds firm to its foundation as a competent performer.
