2022 BMW 5-Series vs. 2022 Audi A6


If there were to be an even larger and more comfortable version of the 3-Series, the 2022 BMW 5-Series would be it! The 5-Series has been a popular choice for drivers who are looking for luxurious car that packs a punch in performance as well. On the other hand, the 2022 Audi A6 has a fantastic interior and is one good-looking car.

Here is a comparison between both cars.

 Design & Style

The 2022 BMW 5-Series has BMW’s signature driver-focused dashboard, providing comfortable reach to the controls. The controls use physical buttons and has a nice, tactile feel to them. There are multiple adjustments for the steering wheel and seats, allowing you to have a much more comfortable ride. The addition of cushioned armrests has enhanced the comfort of any ride. The interior is also trimmed with upmarket material, giving the car an absolutely luxurious look.

Audi is well-known for its luxurious interiors for their cars, the 2022 Audi A6 is no exception! The design of their dashboard is really similar to that of the A7 and A8’s. The seats are great and trimmed with high quality leather, though we would argue that the seats aren’t as comfortable as in the 5-Series’s. With the ability to fold the rear seats and offering a large trunk, the A6 works great in carrying cargo.

Technology & Safety

All 5-series models get satellite navigation, the 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, a digital television and other services. The iDrive infotainment system is excellent and is projected on a large 10-inch display. In addition to the mandatory safety features in most cars, the 4-Series has a wide range of hi-tech safety systems in place. Traffic assistant, Lane departure warnings and cruise control are some examples of the additional safety features. The 5-Series has also done marvelously well in crash test ratings.

The 2022 Audi A6 uses Audi’s MMI infotainment system that is connected to 8.8-inch touchscreen display. You are also given the option of purchasing dual screens for the infotainment system and Audi’s virtual cockpit. A standard 10-speaker audio system comes installed in all A6 versions. Driver assistance features, high-intensity discharge headlights, active lane departure warning system, low tire pressure warning systems are some of the additional safety features in place.


For a better comparison, we will compare the base versions of both models. With a standard four-cylinder, 2.0-litre engine, the 2022 Audi A6 reaches a maximum output of 204 horsepower. The 2022 BMW 5-Series has a 4.0-litre, 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that has a maximum output of 248 horsepower. Both models offer a wide selection of engines to meet your preference and needs.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Audi A6 is an excellent car and offers many new features and design improvements from its predecessors. However, the car pales in comparison to the 2022 BMW 5-Series in many categories – better dashboard and infotainment system. The 2022 BMW 5-Series is just that much better.
