2020 Audi A6 vs. Its Competition

2020 Audi A6
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Audi A6 is often compared directly to its German contemporaries in the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, both of which have a long history of sedan excellence and offer impressive style, tech, and quality for a price premium.

The Lexus GS is long in the tooth at this point and lacks the connectivity options of the Germans.

Jaguar’s XF is beautifully understated, and its powertrain lineup is excellent.

There’s even a wagon, if you’re into that.

Finally, the Cadillac CT6 is slightly larger than this competitive set but offers impressive semi-autonomous tech and engaging driving dynamics.

It will be dropped after 2020.

Quick Specs
The 2020 Audi A6 is as good as mid-size luxury sedans get—for those still shopping sedans.
The 2020 BMW 5-Series is the goldilocks mid-sizer with a roundel on the hood: comfortable, powerful, and luxurious.
In its final year, the 2020 Cadillac CT6 is a tempting look at what could have been from the luxury brand.
Especially in wagon form, the 2020 Jaguar XF is an appealing luxury car for those of us not totally sold on SUVs.
The 2020 Lexus GS is a stylish, sporty sedan for nonconformists.
It's good to be the king: There's a reason the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class family of cars still rules the mid-size luxury roost.
