2019 Audi A6 vs. Its Competition

2019 Audi A6
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 reminds us just how good sports sedans can be.
The 2019 Jaguar XF mid-size luxury sedan is even better as a wagon; a well-earned break from the crossover craze.
The 2018 Lexus GS is a worthy rival to its German foes in terms of luxury and handling, but its engine lineup is falling behind the competition.
