Poll: Audi A6 or Mercedes-Benz E-Class?
Kicking things off is the Audi A6. This cleanly styled German thoroughbred offers a wide range of powerplants. There’s a 252 horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder, a supercharged V6 that’s good for 333 ponies and a diesel with 240 horses and a whopping 428 lb-ft of torque. S6 models feature a 450-horsepower V8!
Similarly, the E-Class features a broad range of engines. Curiously, the base unit is 2.1-liter turbodiesel that puts out a healthy 195 horses. For drivers that want more, there’s a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 with 302 horsepower AND even a 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine that puts out 329 ponies. The range-topping AMG version of the E cranks out 577 Clydesdales!
