Expert reviews:

Billed as the "spiritual successor" to the departed CC sedan, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon arrives on our shores just in time to witness the demise of its species. We're exaggerating, but the buying public's love affair with the crossover shows no sign of abating anytime soon and we admire VW for staying the course with the Arteon, which is positioned as the brand's flagship vehicle in the States. It's Volkswagen's belief that the Arteon's sleek exterior, curated feature content, and German-built pedigree will appeal to traditional-sedan customers who desire a touch of exclusivity and luxury without drawing too much attention to themselves.

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: 
edmunds.com
