Audi A6 3.0 TDI 2011 vs BMW 530d vs Mercedes E350 CDi 2011

At the first exit with the Audi A6 3.0 TDI has to show the new star in the business class, it can compete with BMW and Mercedes.

Audi A6 3.0 TDI 2011 vs BMW 530d vs Mercedes E350 CDi 2011
The Audi there are only four-wheel drive and automatic transmission, a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

The BMW is launching the corresponding features as options, but with conventional eight-speed automatic transmission.

In standard trim, the Mercedes, without four-wheel drive then, but with seven-speed automatic transmission.

Unequal conditions, alright, but here we are taking also still no dotted comparison test. It's about the first impression - no more, no less. That such can be treacherous, as everyone knows - in cars is no different than in humans.

And the star of the day our eyes flattering, is not be dismissed out of hand. Audi has it equipped, standard electronic programmable ("Drive Select"), on top of air suspension and 19-inch wheels.

Inside, the new oak plywood, fine leather, (almost) the complete program. Our impression was very elegant, true quality, expensive. Soothing the freer view of the sunken cockpit, at least he is not the lower edge of the windshield is so long.

For there, in a direct line from the driver, a box of plastic offended the eye, not Audi-like. It is the viewer for the new, optional head-up display, a la BMW, the information in the front window einspiegelt. We think: if so, then better not.

Back to offer the new slightly more space than its predecessor, but the can only be demonstrated with a tape measure. Chill to the supply, but not as lush as it can hope to 4.92 meter outdoor track.

In the BMW it sits more comfortably in the rear, but the swelling is concentrated more at the front cockpit. The Mercedes, shorter in comparison, has everything in all the best sense of space.

Part one of our driving program is a blocked off handling course, ideal for exploration and romp around. It rains in Italy, even in streams, which jeopardizes the situation in terms of roadholding tendency.

In the Audi immediately convincing the smooth running of the new V6 TDI engine. Serve with the subtle shifting of the double-clutch transmission. Impressive, like the gently now vonstattengeht.

This applies less to the start-stop system, which is this: When stopping the diesel shakes noticeably more than the also start-stop-controlled BMW diesel.

Presses ahead on the slopes of the currently most powerful A6 TDI violently forward, not least thanks to the standard quattro drive. A lot of grip and tremendous stability in the fast corners impress. Since, the new A6 significantly more than the old, with his 19-inch wheels of course help.

The engine now rests a little further back in the chassis, the center differential of the quattro forward in the normal case, 60 percent of the power to the rear - also makes a positive impact. But in the wet, tight radius appears to be the inherent top-heaviness - in sports driving forces of the bow of the A6 stubbornly straight.

Only those who "Sport" mode turns on the early and strong and then hit the gas increases, here the rear of peace and bring out the correct course Sun But even that is not always possible. Normally, of course, dominates the high sense of driving safety .

The steering with electric power-assisted surgery pleasantly direct and precise, although gef├╝hlsarm. As more feedback is likely to come across yet.


After changing in the 5 series then one immediately clear: the agile and dynamic car still comes from BMW, especially, as here in conjunction with the "Adaptive Drive (variable damper, active roll compensation).

Its 258-horsepower inline six-cylinder rumbles louder, but breathes more freely than the TDI in the Audi and appeals to adventurous.

He reacts to steering sensitive deflected more readily into the corners, can be with the gas pedal as a four-wheel drive ("xDrive") in its cornering easily and willingly manipulated.

With its 18-inch wheels, our copy in the curves of the wet track, however, earlier in terms of lateral support at the end. The Mercedes: no athlete in the streamlined "Avantgarde" versions, but still enjoyable. With the standard 17-inch wheels on the handling course, no state has to make, especially since it lacks the rear-wheel drive in wet weather grip.

And the more extensive body movements are not inviting to the extreme driving. He moves playfully and without any problems, and its hydraulic steering brings us yet feeling pinch of those taken away from the electrical systems, garnished with Audi and BMW.

A delight is the V6 diesel with 265 PS: cultured, powerful and even more active than the Audi counterpart.
