Its a pretty good article. They praised the A6 (with 19" wheels) for having the best handling and ride of the 4 vehicles. The handling received very good marks and was called out for handling better than any car as heavy as the A6.
They also appreciated the power (2nd quickest) and smoothness of the transmission. They called the A6 the "compromise" of the group as it didn't win any particular category but it had very good marks in more categories than the BMW, Mercedes or Caddy.
The interior and exterior design also received rave reviews as to the quality and understated appeal. Nothing too flashy like the caddy's red leather inserts. One interesting thing-they said the Audi (among others in the compare) had a "sport setting" for the suspension. That doesn't exist until you step up to the S6...
