BMW 5 Series vs Audi A6


Both the 2017 BMW 5 Series and the 2017 Audi A6 are famous in their segment for being awesome, premium-grade rides with a little extra pep in their step. But which of these fun-to-drive midsize sedans should you choose?


Interior & Trunk Space

Sedans offer plenty of room for passengers to come along for the ride, but since the 5 Series and A6 are both designed for performance and style, sometimes that means they make compromises when it comes to space. The BMW 5 Series has the advantage, with an almost 2-cubic-foot advantage over the Audi A6. The 5 Series also has 18.7 cubic feet of storage space in the trunk in comparison to the Audi’s 14.1-cubic-foot trunk.


Powertrain & Suspension

Compare BMW’s 8-speed transmission to the Audi A6’s 7-speed, which, when paired with the 5 Series’ rear-wheel drive system to contrast with the A6’s front-wheel drive, delivers a smoother and more thrilling performance. BMW tops off its infamous engineering with a double wishbone suspension that’s more unique than the A6’s multi-link offering.



While the Audi A6 has an overall impressive and sophisticated interior, the BMW 5 Series is lauded by critics for its innovative connectivity and infotainment features.


Verdict: The 2017 BMW 5 Series is the clear winner in this contest. It was engineered for performance, but also has plenty of space for passengers and the technology to keep everyone entertained and happy.
