2019 Audi A6 vs. Its Competition

Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Audi A6 is most often compared to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series, other mid-size luxury competitors imported from Germany.

Both the E-Class and 5-Series have more permutations than the A6 (for now) and offer plug-in hybrid variants all the way up to snarling V-8s.

The Lexus GS is comparatively old and lacks connectivity and comfort compared to all three.

The Jaguar XF doesn’t offer as much flash either, but offers a wagon variant that’s gorgeous—if you’re into that sort of thing.

The Cadillac CTS is on its way out and could be found with steep discounts.

The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is arguably the greatest American performance sedan ever, and we will miss it dearly when it's discontinued after 2019.
