Are you looking for a high quality coupe or family sedan? The 2013 Audi A6 Prestige is a top contender. But how does it measure up to the sporty 2-door Subaru BRZ Limited coupe? Both are sporty, fun to drive, and offer excellent security and safety features. They both have been listed on the “Best New Cars of 2013″ list at about.com. Yet they differ in several ways. Take a look at how these two mid-range luxury cars measure up.

2013 Audi A6 2013 Subaru BRZ

Design
The Subaru BRZ boasts a classic sports car design, with rear wheel drive and a sleek, smooth exterior. This slick little coupe is a pleasure to behold and drive, accommodating four passengers in somewhat cramped surroundings. You’ll find more room in the Audi A6, a mid-size luxury car with a sleek new styling in the S6 version for 2013. You can find Audi A6 at Carsales and other listings sites; with these models combining the engine power of a sports car with the comfortable design of a high end family sedan.

Drive and Handling
Both cars have been built for speed and smooth handling. The BRZ is capable of hugging every curve with ease, with a precise transmission and gearbox for a smooth and quiet ride. It feels light and ready to spring to life under your hands, capable of handling a variety of road conditions with agility.
However, the Audi A6 and S6 models are no slouch, boasting a 420-hp, twin-turbo 4.0 litre V8 engine. This gives the A6 a mega-jolt of power, along with accurate and intuitive steering and a sturdy chassis that can handle high speeds with ease. The A6 can go from 0 to 60 mph in an impressive 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph. This is hard to beat, putting it ahead of pricier competition from BMW and other luxury vehicles.
Fuel Economy
Both the BRZ and A6 have powerful engines and luxurious interior features, but do they offer decent fuel economy? If you look at a Subaru BRZ for sale on Carsales, you’ll find that it provides 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. This puts it ahead of the Audi, which only offers 17 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, perhaps due to the powerful engine under the bonnet.

The Verdict
There is certainly no shortage of positive attributes when it comes to both the Subaru BRZ and Audi A6. The Audi is a classic model that has been given new life with its turbocharged S6 model this year. It retains its value well and comes equipped with myriad luxury features. On the other hand, the Subaru BRZ is a sporty car that is fun to drive and hard to beat for its price.
