Best all-around mid-size luxury car you can buy. It combines the sportiness of the 5 series with the luxury of the E class, with styling that beats both. And the interior is of higher quality, with technology that is on par or better than its rivals. The E-class is a great-looking car, and so is the 5 series, but the A6 is simply much better looking. Also, it beats the Lexus GS on exterior and driving experience. The GS was really stepped up, but it is still not a car for driving-enthusiasts looking for a good, mid-sized daily driver. Also, you could compare the A6 to the XTS in terms of price. However, the XTS is no where near any of the other mid-sized luxury cars in terms of handling and overall driving experience. The AWD, which is standard on all models besides the 2.0T, is a great help for any driver that experiences snow or even heavy rain on occasion (of course, AWD is available on its competitors, too). Overall, great job Audi.
