2018 Audi A6 vs. 2018 Volkswagen Arteon

There are a lot of recognizable names in the world of luxury cars and among them are Audi and Volkswagen. If you are looking for car models from both brands that can go head to head against each other, the 2018 Audi A6 and 2018 Volkswagen Arteon are a close match. Through this comparison, however, you will discover why the Audi is way better than the Volkswagen.

Design & Style

The 2018 Audi A6 is a beautiful car from the inside, out. It has the makings of one of the toughest car models to beat even from brands like Volkswagen. Consider the fact that its beauty has been matched by quality materials that make up its solid construction. Add to that the fact that there is more than enough space inside to carry passengers of all sizes.

In the case of the 2018 Volkswagen Arteon, you will notice how it has been beautifully carved by its maker as well. The base trim comes with 18-inch wheels and is also a front-wheel drive at the same time. Inside it, however, it does not really wow that much even if some parts in the cabin are good enough for first-time luxury car owners.

Technology & Safety

Technology and safety are of much importance when comparing two cars. For the 2018 Audi A6, you may say it is quite a bit laid back when compared to its brothers from the same maker since it does not include the latest MMI interface. However, the older interface is more than just usable and of course, functionalities remain to be the easiest to manipulate when compared to rivals. Safety features include adaptive cruise control and automatic braking as well.

As for the 2018 Volkswagen Arteon, expect a new Digital Cockpit replacing the older one. The maker promises that this has a configurable display but do take note too that this feature is only allowed in the SEL and Executive trim levels.


The 2018 Audi A6 relies on its four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine under the hood. This engine produces up to a maximum torque of 273lb-ft and up to 252 horsepower. Meanwhile, the 2018 Volkswagen Arteon gets its power from an inline-four, 2.0-liter engine which is capable of producing maximum power for 268 horses.

The Bottom Line

There are definitely a lot of things to love when it comes to the 2018 Audi A6. Consider its styling and how it has been designed by its maker and you will truly be impressed. Engine performance is undeniably good for its range and of course, tech and safety features are very much appreciated as well.
