2014 Audi A8 vs. 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A8 than the BMW M6 Gran Coupe. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A8.

Convenience
With the Audi A8 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the Audi A8 is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW M6 Gran Coupe. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A8 and the BMW M6 Gran Coupe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A8 is much wider than the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A8, which is slightly longer than the BMW M6 Gran Coupe.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A8 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW M6 Gran Coupe.

Handling
The Audi A8 has a larger turning radius than the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A8 is significantly less powerful than the BMW M6 Gran Coupe. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the BMW M6 Gran Coupe. The Audi A8 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi A8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
