2017 Lincoln Continental Goes Toe-to-Toe with 2017 Audi A6

The 2017 Lincoln Continental offers drivers from Mayfield Heights, Cleveland, Kent, Mentor, and Middleburg Heights four tantalizing trim levels, each giving you graduated levels of luxury and refinement, while the 2017 Audi A6 offers only three. That doesn't mean they're not nice, but it does limit your options. Let's dive a bit further, however, into some more meaty differences:

  • Right off the starting line, the 2017 Lincoln Continental weighs in about a cool two grand below the 2017 Audi A6's starting price.
  • You'll also get a better warranty with the 2017 Continental. It offers a better Powertrain Warranty (Continental: 72 months/70,000 miles VS A6: 48 months/50,000 miles), Maintenance Warranty (Continental: 24 months/24,000 miles VS A6: 12 months/10,000 miles), and a better Roadside Assistance Warranty (72 months/70,000 miles) with the Continental, versus the A6's 48 months/unlimited miles). So what was it you're paying more for again?
  • In terms of performance, both luxury sedans offer available all-wheel drive. What sets these two apart is their actual power plants; while you'll pay more to slide behind the Audi's steering wheel, you'll find a standard offering a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine capable of 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque-not too shabby, until you consider the standard engine offering of the 2017 Lincoln Continental: a 3.7-liter V6 engine cranking out 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it only gets better from there.
