Audi A6 Standard Leather

FEATURES: 2020 Audi A6 vs. 2020 BMW 530i

Audi provides more standard luxuries than BMW, meaning you'll have to spend extra on upgrades for the 2020 BMW 530i compared to the 2020 Audi A6. For instance, the 2020 Audi A6 comes standard with heated front seats and leather-trimmed upholstery. In the 2020 BMW 530i, heated seats cost extra and synthetic leatherette upholstery comes standard. Furthermore, the 2020 BMW 530i only offers dual-zone automatic climate control. Instead, the 2020 Audi A6 provides customizable climate controls for rear seat passengers, too. Tri-zone automatic climate control comes standard on the Audi A6 while four-zone controls with individual temperatures for left and right back seat passengers is an optional extra you can't get on any BMW 5-Series sedan.

TECHNOLOGY: 2020 Audi A6 vs. 2020 BMW 530i

Inside the 2020 BMW 5-Series sedan, you'll be met by a generous touchscreen display rising from the dashboard -- like most every modern car these days. Audi takes your multimedia experience a step further in the 2020 Audi A6 thanks to dual touch displays handsomely integrated into the center console, not tacked-on like an afterthought. And while both infotainment systems feature built-in navigation and Apple CarPlay™, you can't get Android Auto™ in the 2020 BMW 530i. By contrast, the new Audi A6 comes standard with both so you can get the same level of convenience from your mobile device, iPhone or otherwise.

The 2020 Audi A6 even comes with some technology that adds style and flair! The standard LED taillights feature dynamic indicators for an eye-catching look and available Matrix-design LED headlights with dynamic daytime running lights add even more cutting-edge appeal. Throw in the standard 19" wheels (18" wheels come standard on the Bimmer) and the 2020 Audi A6 boasts a more modern, premium look than the 2020 BMW 530i.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE: 2020 Audi A6 vs. 2020 BMW 530i

Both these cars share an almost identical wheelbase, weight almost the same and they even make identical horsepower: 248 standard horses from their turbocharged four-cylinder engines. But the 2020 Audi A6 makes more torque! An extra 15 lb-ft of torque means the Audi A6 has even more low-end power for extra quickness off the line. And if you demand more power, the 2020 Audi A6 offers an available upgrade to 335 horsepower. That's the same amount of horsepower as the upgraded 2020 BMW 540i.

Best of all, the legendary Audi quattro® all-wheel drive system comes standard on every 2020 Audi A6. That means you'll enjoy better handling and acceleration grip as well as superior traction and control in poor weather. The standard rear-wheel drive layout of the 2020 BMW 5-Series sedan isn't as composed on slippery surfaces, and all-wheel drive will cost you thousands extra as an option!

SAFETY: 2020 Audi A6 vs. 2020 BMW 530i

When it comes to protecting what matters most, both these cars add the latest in driver assist technology. On the 2020 Audi A6, standard Audi pre sense® basic and pre sense® front provide automatic forward collision warning and emergency braking. Lane departure warning also comes standard. That said, the 2020 BMW 530i also offers comparable features as standard.

The difference comes in the results! The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2020 BMW 530i their 2019 Top Safety Pick+ award -- marking it as one of the safest vehicles of last year. However, the 2020 Audi A6 did even better, earning the Top Safety Pick+ award based on the even stricter standards of the 2020 model year test. Only the Audi sedan won the highest and most exclusive safety accolade given out by the IIHS!
