The Jaguar XF Vs. The Audi A6 - Luxury Sedan Comparison

There's a lot of options in the luxury sedan market, and it can be confusing finding the sedan of choice amidst all the selection. We'll breakdown two luxury sedan choices to help any buyers that are stuck between the Jaguar XF and the Audi A6. First up is performance, how do the two stack up when it comes to power and general efficiency. Before we jump in, though, it's important to note the XF is available in two model versions: the sedan, and the Sportbrake. The Sportbrake offers more stylish versatility with its wagon-inspired design.

Performance - Elegant Power

The Jaguar edges out the base engine power comparison, but it's not all about power. The XF comes standard with two engine options: you can go the diesel route and choose a 180 horsepower die4-cylinder engine, or you have the available gas engine option which clocks in at 296 horsepower. Comparatively, the A6 sports a 252-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. If you're looking for more power than the standard trim options offer, the XF has an available 3.0-liter supercharged V6 (380 horsepower), and the A6 has a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 (450 horsepower). There's plenty of power to be had regardless of choice. The Jaguar XF also comes standard with Jaguar Drive Control, which allows for selectable driving modes (standard, Eco, Dynamic, or Rain-Ice-Snow) for quick adaption to terrain. Additionally, both cars have about the same estimated city and highway fuel economy (25 city/34 highway), and both sport all-wheel drive. Performance is important, but luxury is more than power.

Interior & Tech - How do the two Luxury Sedans matchup?

Both the XF and the A6 sport sleek, refined interiors. The XF takes a more elegant, yet simple approach to the interior feel. The Audi on the other hand, has a simple, but intricate style. The A6 and the XF have lots of available interior tech options. The XF comes with InControl as a standard infotainment system, which can be upgraded to the InControl Touch Pro (added navigation functionality, larger touch screen, and a solid-state drive). Similarly, the A6 includes the Audi MMI infotainment and navigational system. If you want, the XF also has available heated and cooled seats, an available air ionization system (neutralize odors, minimizes bacteria and pollution), and grained leather seats. Another feature that's available with the XF is the Activity Key. This option is a waterproof wristband with a built-in key that allows for easy lock/unlock access.

Warranty Comparison

Knowing that the manufacturer stands behind their product is an important factor to consider. The XF and A6 vary by an entire year and 10,000 miles in this category.
