Overall:

The 540i is a magnificent vehicle, and it looks like a dad car even though it can leave your daily WRX in the dust.

Overall:

Have previously owed a BMW325c, Hondas, Acura, Mercedes, Nissan and when comparing the 2017 530ix against the GS350 , E350 and Genesis G80, the Bimmer wins. I own a 2012 e350 but the 2017 cabin feels more cramped and the 530 cabin is VERY comfortable. Still dont get how a 248hp engine has that much pick up.

Power Ranked 2017 Audi A6 worse.
"The 540i engine is almost ridiculously quick for a six-cylinder engine. Remarkably, it matches that power with both smoothness and quiet. The 540i engine is so far superior that it alone wins the comparison between these two vehicles."
Handling Ranked 2017 Audi A6 worse.
"The 540i, even without the sport suspension or any dynamic enhancements, corners better and more level than the A6. "
