Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A6 than the Acura TLX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura TLX and the Audi A6 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Audi A6 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Acura TLX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost

Based on MSRP, the Acura TLX is clearly a better financial choice over 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 TLX and the Audi A6 have similar Destination Charges.
