If you’re comparing the 2021 Audi A6 vs. BMW 5 Series, just know that you’re not alone. Drivers in the St Paul area love both of these powerful luxury sedans, but we think that for most drivers, the decision should ultimately be an easy one. Although they start with more or less equivalent price tags and power levels, the 5 Series offers more luxury features, more generous dimensions, and offers a more powerful suite of engine upgrades.

Audi A6 vs. BMW 5 Series: Prices

The 2021 BMW 5 Series starts at $54,200 MSRP, while the 2021 Audi A6 starts at $54,900 MSRP. The BMW Sedan’s price gives it a slight advantage right from the start, but since you may end up choosing a higher-level model, you should know what to expect from the rest of the lineup:

  • The 5 Series is offered in four trims, and all except one can be paired with either AWD or RWD. There’s even a plug-in hybrid option, and this means you’ll have seven options in total.
  • The A6 can be had in three trims, and each is offered with two engines, making a total of six options. However, there aren’t any options with plug-in hybrid powertrains.

Audi A6 vs. BMW 5 Series: Performance

The 5 Series gives you four distinct powertrains to consider, and lets you pair almost any powertrain with either RWD or xDrive Intelligent AWD. The A6 offers just two engines, and AWD is the only drivetrain available.

BMW 5 Series Engines & Powertrains

  • 2.0L 4-cylinder Turbocharged Engine – 248 hp, 258 lb-ft of torque / Standard RWD, Available AWD
  • 2.0L 4-cylinder Turbocharged Hybrid Powertrain – 288 hp, 257 lb-ft of torque / Standard RWD, Available AWD
  • 3.0L V6 Turbocharged Engine – 335 hp, 331 lb-ft of torque / Standard RWD, Available AWD
  • 4.4L V8 M Performance Engine – 523 hp, 553 lb-ft of torque / Standard AWD

Audi A6 Engines

  • 2.0L 4-cylinder MHEV Engine – 248 hp, 273 lb-ft of torque / Standard AWD
  • 3.0L V6 MHEV Engine – 335 hp, 369 lb-ft of torque / Standard AWD

If you’re comparing the Audi A6 vs. BMW 5 Series on performance, you’ll notice right away that their two standard engines are more or less evenly matched. Despite this, the 5 Series gets up to 33 mpg on the highways near Minneapolis, while the A6 only manages up to 31 mpg. They also offer comparable 3.0L upgrades. However, in this Audi vs. BMW match-up, the Audi has absolutely nothing that can match the range-topping engine or plug-in hybrid powertrain of the BMW Sedan.

Audi A6 vs. BMW 5 Series: Interior Dimensions & Features

If you’re not yet completely convinced by the details laid out above, a closer look at each model’s interior features and dimensions might help to point you in the right direction:

  • Trunk Volume: The Audi A6 offers 13.7 cubic feet of trunk space, compared to 14.0 cubic feet in the 5 Series.
  • 5 Series Infotainment: The 5 Series comes standard with a 12.3-inch central touchscreen and a 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display.
  • A6 Infotainment: The Audi has its own dual-screen setup, with 8.8-inch and 8.6-inch screens stacked above the center console. But you’ll need to upgrade to get a 10.1-inch central screen or a virtual cockpit in this model.
