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. "
