2017 Audi A6 (European spec)
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Audi A6 isn't bare in base-model trim; we actually like its transmission and it's handsomely equipped.

Quick Specs
8.0
The 2017 Audi A6 is a stellar mid-size luxury sedan; it's a bit sedate, but still good enough to compete with some flagship vehicles from other brands.
7.8
The 2017 BMW 5-Series may do for tech sedans what turn-of-the-century 5-Series did for sport sedans.
7.5
The 2017 Cadillac CTS-V impresses on all fronts, unseating BMW and Mercedes-Benz by offering the best combination of performance and day-to-day livability in the large luxury/sport sedan segment.
7.6
The aluminum-bodied 2017 Jaguar XF is no lightweight when it comes to nimble handling or rear-seat space.
8.2
With the 2017 E-Class, Mercedes-Benz is pushing the boundaries of its autonomous driving technology, and backing it up with S-Class style.
8.3
The 2017 Genesis G80 is one of the first new cars from the nascent luxury carmaker, and it's a good leg to stand on.
