A6 vs. A7: Which Upscale Audi Four-Door Is Best for You?

The 2018 Audi A6 and 2018 Audi A7 have a lot in common. Their designs are similar, though one is a formal sedan while the other is a hatchback with a sloping, coupe-like roofline.

The wheelbases are almost identical: 114.6 inches for the A6 and 114.7 inches for the A7. Passenger cabin dimensions are, with the exception of rear-seat headroom, either identical or within half an inch of each other. Exterior dimensions are also close, but the sleeker A7 is about 2 inches lower and 2 inches longer. Both are highly ranked by U.S. News in their respective categories: midsize luxury cars for the A6 and large luxury cars for the A7.

Yet, there are distinct differences that go beyond their sedan and hatchback bodies. The most obvious of these center on drivetrains and price. So, which is better?
