2014 Audi A6 vs 2014 Acura RLX

Metro Detroit Drivers Shopping for a 2014 Audi A6…

Drivers all over Metro Detroit have known Audi as a trusted brand, and the 2014 A6 proving why the German automaker has frequently set the luxury vehicle standard. With surprising power, high levels of comfort, innovative technology, and more, the A6 provides a competitive entry into the luxury sedan market.

The exciting features of the A6 start off with its efficient 220-hp 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine. Audi’s available quattro® AWD system put you in total control of the power, while curving exterior line work and LED taillights give it a distinct profile cruising the highways.

While the A6 has done a great job at impressing some drivers, the 2014 Acura RLX comes out ahead in a variety of ways, including:

  • Power: Acura’s VTEC 3.5L V6 engine kicks out 310 hp to the 220 hp of the A6.
  • Acura earns an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway to the 29 mpg of the Audi
  • The 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty  of the RLX will cover you longer than the 48 months/50,000 miles offered by Audi

The 2014 RLX stems from the redesign of the Acura RL while dropping over 160 pounds thanks to an aluminum-enhanced body design. Despite the lost weight, the Acura offers more interior space than the RL did offering more headroom, legroom, and shoulder room than the A6 can offer.

Acura helps keep you safe behind the wheel too, thanks to amenities like an active lane-keeping system and adaptive cruise control, but Audi forces car buyers to upgrade for many modern features that come standard on the RLX.
