Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Audi A6

    • A high-tech dashboard setup
    • Looks dominating on the road
    • Sweet handler

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Audi A6

    • Only front-wheel drive
    • Misses out on flagship features
    • Rear seat experience is average

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.
