2020 Audi A7 vs. Its Competition

2020 Audi A7
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

No automaker offers a car quite like the A7, aside from Audi with its smaller A5.

The BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe and Mercedes-Benz CLS match its svelte shape, but not its relatively good utility.

Mercedes and Volvo offer wagons that are more spacious, if hardly sexy.

The Jaguar XF’s styling has aged well, though its tech story can’t come close to that of the Audi.

Perhaps the A7’s most serious rival comes from across the proverbial hall in corporate cousin Porsche’s Panamera, which comes in a somewhat utilitarian hatchback configuration.

Good luck matching the A7’s price, however.
