Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 740 than the Audi A6, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 740 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A6.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A6 as you will with the BMW 740, 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). Based on MSRP, the Audi A6 is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW 740.

Dimensions
The Audi A6 is about the same width as the BMW 740. If you go with the Audi A6, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 740.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 740, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A6 is significantly less powerful than the BMW 740. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A6 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 740.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A6 and the BMW 740.
