A6- vs -5-series- vs -E~Class- vs -GS-

Which would you have, please state reasons why.

I'd take the Audi A6, as I already have done so. lol

It's classy, sporty, exceptionally well put together, understated and the least popular bar the Lexus

A6.

Best-looking, brand loyalty, refined, the S6, the interior, the 3.0 TDi, possibility of shoe-horning the 4.2 TDi in it, comfort.

I'd take the 5 series, only because I'm accustomed to BMWs. Audi in second followed by the Lexus and the Mercedes.

Audi. Second choice would be Lexus. The Audi just looks more completle. BMW and Mercedes have too much badge snobbery.

A6. Unless we're talking about the top cars of the others in the poll, it would have to be the A6.

Quick question- how come you didn't include the Infiniti Q45? I'd definitely choose it if it were to be in this comparison.

However, it's not, so I'd pick the GS430. I tend to favor Japanese cars because of their reliability (German cars are getting better, but Japanese cars are still slightly ahead if I'm correct). Second would be the BMW and the Audi. Until Audi comes up with the next RS6, I'd still choose the M5 (if we were to compare top models). Coming last would be the E55 AMG. I love the power, but I absolutely hate the brand. No idea why. I just hate it.

That's if the top models were considered. It would be unfair performance wise to the Q45 and GS430 because they don't really have performance models- unless you were maybe comparing the hybrid GS430, but still, it's weight wouldn't help.

If the 550i went up against the Q45 and the GS430, it would be much more fair and competitive.

the infinti car that fits in this segment is the midsized M45 not the fullsized Q45 that does battle with 7-series and S-classes
the e-class, i've always loved it and the E-55 AMG is awesome, the wagon is immaculate
the audi comes in second just because of the ugly snout, it would be a much better car in terms of styling if the car lost the ugly nose. the avante is wonderful
the GS and BMW come in at a tie. Why? the Lexus is OK but it's probably the least inspired and slowest of the group. the BMW's i-drive is at fault for the otherwise great car's last place finish.

Merc. E class for me. Its just so much better looking than the BMW 5, classier than the GS, hence the name E Class i suppose. But i can't find anything wrong about the A6. But i'd still have the Merc. More specificly the E63 AMG. Power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For me though, I'd take an Acura RL/Honda Legend. It does compete in this class and it's equipped almost as well as the new S-class.

Check out his location. Us Brits don't get Infiniti here, we have to make do with just the German ones and a few luxury Japs...

CLS, but if i must out of these, it'd have to be either:
E-Class, AMG (or at least bodykitted) with some nice wheels
A6, S-line with the multi-spoke wire wheels

(but i'd rather buy a CLS just coz it'd be the best looking, nicest (or second after Audi) interior and just so damn cool)
