COMPARE BMW 530I and Audi A6

The 2018 BMW 530i vs the 2018 Audi A6: Choose Heritage Performance

BMW and Audi have long been fierce rivals in the luxury market, especially when it comes to sport sedans. The new Audi A6 and the new BMW 530i are two particularly competitive options, and choosing only one can be difficult.

Value and price won't be much of a deciding factor in this comparison: both models come covered by a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty, both are very similar in price from base model to fully-loaded and feature-filled, and both are quality vehicles. Fortunately, there are some key differences that can help you make the best choice for you.

Performance, Capability, and Agility

  • Both Audi and BMW midsize sport sedans come standard with 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines
  • The BMW 530i xDrive comes standard with AWD--quattro all-wheel drive is available on the Audi A6
  • BMW 530i and A6 horsepower is nearly identical, but the BMW 5 Series has a faster 0-60 time

Convenience, Technology, and Safety

  • The spacious BMW 530i has a larger trunk: 18.7 cubic feet of space
  • Audi's MMI infotainment system offers an 8.3-inch screen; BMW's iDrive infotainment system comes with a 10.2-inch touch-screen display
  • Both models test well in safety ratings, but the BMW 530i is able to offer more advanced driver-assistance systems than the Audi A6
