Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

Audi A6

  • New flashy design to the interiors. Three coloured screens to cocoon you in the drivers cockpit. New chassis is quite agile and comfortable. Petrol is refined and powerful. Looks sharp.

BMW 3 Series

  • Shifts focus to the enthusiast driver
  • powerful petrol packs a punch
  • improved handling and plush
  • tech laden interiors. New M340i is the pick of the bunch.

Audi A6

  • No diesel option. Not really a chauffeur driven option. Not really exciting from behind the wheel either. Only one drivetrain option. Audi has also chosen to leave quattro all-wheel drive
  • all-wheel steering and the more powerful engines off the options list.

BMW 3 Series

  • Ride is on the stiffer side
  • some silly feature omissions like 360 degree camera and passive keyless entry.
