Which S6 is the Best?

The exceptionally well-stocked Premium Plus with the Driver Assistance package sounds like a good call. Premium car buyers tend to desire every bell and whistle, however, so by all means consider the Prestige. Don't forget there's a new generation coming.

2018 Audi S6 vs the competition

2018 BMW M550i -- This 455-hp beast is considered to be better than the previous-generation M5.

2018 Cadillac CTS V-Sport -- Excellent chassis, and comes to the party with 420 hp.

2018 Mercedes-AMG E 43 -- A variant of the fantastic E-Class, the E 43 is a little down on power (396 hp) but comes with an adaptive air suspension as standard and is a truly superb package.

Used Audi S8 -- As the performance version of the A8 flagship sedan, the S8 is even faster and more exclusive than the S6. It also has more occupant and cargo space. A certified pre-owned (CPO) S8 could be in the same ballpark price-wise as a new S6.
