Do the 2015 Audi A6 Standard Features Stand Up to an Acura?
The luxury sedan class is one of the most competitive segments of the auto world, and a vehicle like the 2015 Audi A6 must have standard features that no other automaker can touch in order to find a home among Chicagoland drivers. However, we firmly believe that when you compare the A6 to the 2016 Acura RLX, you’ll agree with us that the RLX simply outdoes the Audi.
Acura Gives Drivers More
Before we dive into the interior features, we want to look at one of the biggest features that sets these two cars apart: the engine.
- The 2016 Acura RLX has a 3.5L V6 engine as standard, rated at 310 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque.
- The 2015 Audi A6, on the other hand, only has a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder with 220 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
Not everyone chooses their luxury sedans based on power, however, and we want to reassure you that the RLX outclasses the A6 on features as well. You can find each of the following amenities on every new Acura RLX, but they require an upgrade on the A6 (if they are even available at all):
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Rearview Camera System
- Navigation with Voice Controls
- Built-in Hard Drive Disk (15 GB)
- Telematics System
- Noise/Sound Cancellation
- Jewel Eye LED Headlights
To top it all off, you get a bonus features on the RLX: added peace of mind. The 2016 Acura RLX has a 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty to cover the most expensive and important elements of your sedan. The Audi only covers their sedan for 48 months or 50,000 miles.

We want to show you that the 2016 Acura RLX bests the 2015 Audi A6 on more than standard features.

Put simply, if you’re seeking a powerful, well-equipped, and truly luxurious sedan in the greater Chicago area, the RLX should be at the top of your list.
