2015 Acura RLX vs. 2015 Audi A6 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura RLX offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Audi A6 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A6, the Acura RLX may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RLX as you will with the Audi A6, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RLX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Audi A6. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX and the Audi A6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura RLX is about the same width as the Audi A6. When looking at overall length, the Acura RLX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi A6.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura RLX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi A6.

Handling
The Acura RLX has a larger turning radius than the Audi A6, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Acura RLX and the Audi A6.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the Audi A6. The Acura RLX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi A6.

Warranty
The Acura RLX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A6.
