2018 Jaguar XF vs. 2018 Audi A6




It takes a unique vehicle to stand out in the crowded luxury sedan class, and the 2018 Jaguar XF and the 2018 Audi A6 are both high-performance examples. With comparable power in the base trim and a similar starting price, you might think that these sedans are indistinguishable. However, once you do a little digging, there are many differences between the two. Find out which one offers Chicagoland drivers more engine options, standard features, and upgradable luxury.

Maximum Performance

Both vehicles are offered in multiple performance levels, and you might be wondering which one can supply more maximum acceleration:

  • The Audi A6 can be equipped with a 3.0L V6 supercharged engine that delivers 340 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission are all standard.

  • The Jaguar XF 35t is available in a number of performance configurations. The highest powered gasoline engine is a 3.0L supercharged V6 that puts out 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed shiftable automatic transmission. That extra torque can help you when you're passing on Interstate 90 in Schaumburg.

In addition, the Jaguar XF can be equipped with a diesel engine for stellar fuel economy and plenty of acceleration, but the Audi A6 doesn't offer a diesel option.

Standard Features

A luxury sedan should include plenty of refined features, but the Audi A6 is lacking a few key systems. The following features are included in the base trim XF:

  • 11-Speaker Audio System with Subwoofer

  • HD Radio Capability

  • Self-Leveling Headlights

The 2018 XF also includes high pressure headlamp washers, which can clean off the headlights in event of muddy conditions. With some of the difficult weather you'll find in Hoffman Estates, it's an exclusive feature that will come in handy.

Available Features

With a plethora of trim levels available in each model, it can be tough to keep track of which one offers a higher level of luxury. In the line-leading 35t Portfolio Limited Edition trim, the Jaguar XF includes the following features:

  • Cooled Driver's Seat

  • Heated Rear Seats

  • Reverse Tilt Passenger Side Mirror

  • Cooled Storage Compartment

  • Heated Leather Steering Wheel

Sadly, none of those are available in the highest trim of the A6. If you'd like to grip a warm steering wheel during cold Hoffman Estates winters, turn to the XF.
