2020 BMW 5 Series vs Audi A6 Performance

When it comes to the engines under the hood, these cars are quite similar. The BMW 5 Series, for instance, carries a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 248 horsepower. The entry-level edition of the Audi A6 also comes with a 248-horsepower engine.

If you’re searching for a bit more power, you’ll get it from these cars. The BMW 5 Series can be equipped with a 3.0L V6 engine that generates 335 horsepower. What about the more powerful engine in the A6? It matches the 5 Series, with the Audi V6 delivering 335 horsepower as well.

So far, these two cars may seem very evenly matched. We have to give the BMW 5 Series a slight edge when it comes to efficient performance, though. The 5 Series gets an EPA-estimated 25 city/33 highway MPG with the base engine, while the Audi A6 gets 24 city/32 highway MPG.

Infotainment and Tech Features

It’s enjoyable to drive a luxury car. It’s even more enjoyable to drive a smart car. The BMW 5 Series is the smart car you’ve been searching for, with the Live Cockpit Professional feature coming standard.

This 12.3-inch instrument cluster provides a wealth of vehicle information right in front of you, so you can access it without taking your eyes away from the road. The Audi virtual cockpit plus houses some of this same information, but the 12.3-inch instrument cluster is only an option and not a standard offering as it is in the 5 Series.

The center stack area in the 5 Series is home to a 10.25-inch central information display that enables you to interact with various features, such as navigation, music, and text messages. The 2020 A6 doesn’t offer a screen as large as the one found in the 5 Series.

5 Series vs A6 Interior Space

Once you’re inside your car, it’s important that you’re actually able to stretch out and enjoy the ride. The 5 Series offers 38.8 inches of front headroom that bests the A6 by nearly an inch. Front legroom in the 5 Series is more generous than what you’ll find in the A6, too.

The big difference between these two cars is the space in the trunk. You’ll have plenty of room for your things in the BMW 5 Series since the trunk measures in at over 18 cubic feet. The Audi A6, on the other hand, comes with a 13.7-cubic-foot trunk, which can leave you searching for more space that you just won’t find.
