2019 Audi A7 vs. Its Competition

Mercedes pioneered the coupe-like sedan with the CLS, and its third-generation model should arrive at about the same time as the A7.

The latest Jaguar XF has sassy sculpting and engaging handling, and it now has a true wagon model.

BMW's coupe-like sedan is the 6-Series Gran Coupe; it's much sleeker than BMW's own 5-Series sedan, and comes in power-hungry M6 trim.

Finally, the Porsche Panamera leaps far beyond the A7 in price, but it shares some family history, a newly prettied-up hatchback shape, and fearsome performance in nearly all its versions.

Quick Specs
More practical and more elegant than the A6 sedan, the Audi A7 drives better than ever and takes on next-level technology.
The 2019 BMW M6 Gran Coupe is a thrilling lame-duck sedan with stunning looks.
The 2019 Jaguar XF mid-size luxury sedan is even better as a wagon; a well-earned break from the crossover craze.
Look beyond the evolutionary looks; the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has one heck of a hybrid powertrain.
The 2019 Porsche Panamera leaves nothing on the table, in terms of performance, flexibility, and panache.
