Performance

If you’re looking for a sophisticated luxury sedan that also dishes out commanding performance on the road, the all-new 2017 Jaguar XF is a top pick in the segment and beats out the Audi A6. Under the hood of the Jaguar XF, you’ll find a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine, which comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Standard versions of this powertrain pump out a confident 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, while the S trim gets some performance tweaks to increase output to a robust 380 hp. This model can move to 60 mph as quickly as 5.1 seconds, and it’s offered with rear-wheel and all-wheel drive. Additionally, there’s a new turbodiesel 2.0L four-cylinder on offer this year, which comes in at 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque.The base engine on the Audi A6 is a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four that makes just 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. There’s also a supercharged 3.0L V6, but maximum output with this engine is 333 hp, and none of them reach 60 mph faster than 5.3 seconds. While all-wheel drive is standard on most trims, the base model gets front-wheel drive standard and there’s no rear-wheel drive version available on any trim.

Premium Features

It should come as no surprise that both of these vehicles come with a wide range of standard and available luxury features, from fine leather upholstery and heated front and rear seats to four-zone climate control, a power rear sunshade, portable Wi-Fi, and a suite of driver assist safety features.The 2017 Jaguar XF stands apart, though, with an available 17-speaker Meridian stereo system compared to the 15-speaker stereo available on the Audi model. Likewise, its standard 8-inch touchscreen provides more clarity than the 2017 Audi A6’s 6.5-inch touchscreen. You’ll also find more features not available on the Audi A6 on higher-end Jaguar trims like a self-parking system and surround view camera. Altogether, the 2016 Jaguar XF simply offers more luxury.
