The Audi A6 vs. BMW 5-Series: Ahead of the Curve in More Ways Than One

2018 Audi A6

Performance That Doesn't Quit: The Audi A6 or BMW 5-Series?

It’s a close call when it comes to power and handling, but you can’t deny the details. For greater horsepower, look to the A6, which boasts a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine offering 252 horsepower. Only 248 horsepower is put out by the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine of the 5-Series. In the A6, excellent handling comes standard, thanks to Quattro all-wheel-drive with drive select technology. The same can be said for the 5-Series, although they come as an upgrade.

Superior Safety Features For Tri-State Roadways

Between the "go, go, go!" mentality of the tri-state area and the heavy traffic of the summer months, driving a secure vehicle that is equipped with features of safety and convenience is paramount. This is where the Audi A6 really takes the lead:

  • The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration has given the 2018 Audi A6 a five-star rating, the highest possible award. The 5-Series only earned a four-star rating in the NHTSA’s frontal crash test, lowering its overall safety score.
  • In an effort to eliminate distractions, the Audi A6 offers the option of having speed, navigation, and other important information projected right onto the windshield. In the BMW, drivers still must remove their eyes from the road to see this information on the vehicle’s mounted display screen.
  • Other safety features on the Audi A6 include automated emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. Night vision is also available as an option on some A6 models.
