The 2017 Audi A6 is giving BMW some tough competition. It is considered as the BMW 5-Series' worst nightmare in more ways than one. This luxury sedan is considered underappreciated out of all Audi sedans, but that should not be the case. It is packed with power and performance enough to topple one the most solid German brands, BMW.

According to Kelley Blue Book, the latest Audi rates one of the best among most of the sedans of its kind. Its rating speaks for itself. It rated 9.2 out of possible 10, a rating which is stellar and almost perfect. It also ranked number two in terms of fuel economy which is also highly considered by the most discerning of car buyers.

The Audi A6 is a classic definition of what luxury means. The new Competition trim delivers a sportier ride. It did lose the diesel-engine option for the 2017 models but is replaced with a new trim which is called the 3.0T Competition.

The luxury sedan comes packed with 340-horsepower supercharged V-6 and a Quattro sport differential, the new trim defines the difference between the ever luxurious 3.0 and performance-oriented S6. Having such power-packed engine makes for a smooth ride. This is something noteworthy as it combines both power and ease of driving in one impressive vehicle.


The interior is definitely best-suited for the classiest of car enthusiasts and buyers. It comes with supple leather and intricate patterns. It also comes with Audi's industry-leading MMI infotainment and navigational system. This is certainly helpful with access to Google Maps and Audi's smartphone interface.

The exterior delivers as well because of its recently upgraded headlights, grille, front bumper, and LED taillights. The exterior of 2017 Audi A6 remains conservative, something that is considered oozing with so much appeal with screaming, commands attention without being arrogant and possesses unprecedented presence without the usual bragging.

As added by Car and Driver, the base powertrain comes packed with 252-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo four, seven-speed automatic, and front-wheel drive. Even the entry level delivers just as much needed power. Nothing has been taken for granted in the all-new 2017 Audi A6.

The 2017 Audi A6's handsome appeal is definitely eye-catching both while moving and even at rest. If one wants understated yet appealing vehicle which commands the necessary attention and packed with power that is considered the best among its competitors, then this luxury sedan is the best option. Even BMW may be shaken because of it.
