Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 BMW M6 lineup loses its iconic coupe, but the four-door Gran Coupe was always the more compelling choice

Pros
Arresting performance
Great handling
High-tech interior
Sexy Gran Coupe

Cons
No more coupe, not that anyone bought it
Hugely expensive
Rivals are compelling, too
Rather plump

Like the M5 on which it's mechanically based, the 2018 BMW M6 Gran Coupe gets the full M division treatment, at least compared to the standard 6 Series Gran Coupe. That includes an immensely powerful turbocharged V8 with 560 horsepower (or an optional 600 hp), an upgraded suspension, stronger brakes and plentiful luxury.

PROS
Engine makes exceptional power
Interior is richly trimmed and well-equipped
Front seats offer impressive support and comfort

CONS
By sedan standards, offers modest headroom and rear-seat legroom
Feels big and heavy around tight turns
Commands significant premium over the M5 on which it's based

The 2018 Audi A6 is a conservatively styled, but handsome mid-size luxury sedan. It lacks the bells and whistles others now offers, but holds firm to its foundation as a competent performer.

Pros
Smart interior
Good powertrain options
Uprated V-6
Standard navigation
Great safety record

Cons
Competes with A7 in top trims
Snug rear seat
No alternative powertrains
Interior can be busy

The 2018 Audi A6 should be suffering from diminished appeal. After all, it's been kicking around without a full redesign for six model years now while its prime competitors have been completely redone in the past year. It's old news. Well, that might be true in terms of attracting attention, but in the end, the A6's appeal has in fact diminished little. This well-rounded luxury sedan continues to deliver exactly what shoppers in this segment are seeking: room, features, luxury and performance in abundance.

PROS
Roomy interior finished in high-quality materials
Powerful engines that also achieve good fuel economy
Intuitive technology interface
Well-balanced ride and handling

CONS
Restrained styling verging on anonymous
Doesn't offer Audi's latest tech

By:
