2022 Audi A6 vs. Its Competition

2022 Audi A6
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

BMW and Mercedes-Benz offer plenty of compelling reasons to shop their 5-Series and E-Class models.

BMW doesn’t have the breadth of body styles found in an Audi showroom, but the latest 5-Series is equipped with lusty engines and its tech is finally approachable.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers up an elegant feel with a majestic ride, and the option of wagon bodies.

Cadillac’s CT5 is a bit smaller and cheaper, with an interior to match, but don’t discount its strong engine choices and terrific handling.

Look to the Volvo S90 for its spacious cabin and relatively inexpensive plug-in hybrid option.

The Tesla Model S won’t win any fit-and-finish awards, but the latest versions offer real-world electric utility and they are great fun to drive.
