What is the first thing that came to your mind when you saw the 2018 Volvo V90 and the 2018 Audi A6? We know you have seen them as close competitors in the world of luxury cars. While it can be easy to just choose from any of these two with how they are designed on the outside, you still have to scrutinize your choice a bit. Take a look at these two cars and find out what they can offer through this comparison. From here, you can proceed to make the choice.

Design & Style

A wagon that is clearly defined by its Swedish design and sleek styling, the 2018 Volvo V90 is truly an impressive car on the outside. Inside it, you will be charmed by the fact that it used only the highest quality materials to give passengers and drivers a great ride. You will also notice that the maker did not compromise space for design as it has plenty of room to accommodate passengers of all sizes.

The 2018 Audi A6, on the other hand, also impresses in terms of design and style. Think of how the maker used excellent materials for the outside and its cabin. The interior has a solid finish as well thus making it attractive to passengers. Despite that, you cannot help but notice that the styling is a bit restrained.

Technology & Safety

If there is one thing that makes the 2018 Volvo V90 stand out as a car model, that will be the fact that the maker carefully thought of the technology and safety features to include in it. It has a high-end stereo system whose sound clearly defines a great value for your money. There is also a navigation system that works with precision. The Pilot Assist in the driver aids for this car coordinates other features like lane keeping assist, steering system, and adaptive cruise control. Blind spot monitoring and a 360-degree camera are also included.

The 2018 Audi A6 will fail you in terms of not upgrading its MMI infotainment interface. It does not have the Virtual Cockpit digital gauge display as well. Blind spot monitoring system is part of the basic offerings of this car but it lacks the more advanced features in the Volvo V90.


When it comes to performance, you will truly applaud the 2018 Volvo V90 as well. The four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine under its hood can produce 295lb-ft of torque and 316 horsepower at maximum torque. This works really better when compared to the 2018 Audi A6. The latter uses a V6, 3.0-liter engine but yield reaches only up to 325lb-ft of torque and 316 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

After reading this comparison, we know you have clearly seen the real reason why a lot of people end up voting for the 2018 Volvo V90. Even with a tough competitor in the 2018 Audi A6, it is still a clear winner.
