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 A6 than the BMW M340. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A6, drivers may find the BMW M340 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Audi A6 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M340, 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). Whether you pick the Audi A6 or the BMW M340, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 A6 and the BMW M340 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A6 is much wider than the BMW M340, 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 A6, which is slightly longer than the BMW M340.

Drivetrain
The Audi A6 has much less torque than the BMW M340, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW M340, 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 M340. 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 A6 and the BMW M340. The Audi A6 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW M340, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi A6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M340.
