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 Kia Stinger. The Kia Stinger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A6.

Convenience
With the Audi A6 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Stinger, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.
