These models are comparably priced until you reach the highest trim levels. The starting MSRP of the RLX is $54,450*, and that price includes opulent standard features like a powerful V6 engine, AcuraLink technology, and Agile Handling Assist®. The A6 costs as much as $67,600, but offers little to justify the thousands extra you are paying. The two feature comparable systems, yet the Audi iteration will likely stretch your budget.

It’s easy to travel in the RLX thanks to standard adaptive cruise control that automatically keeps you a safe distance from the car in front of you. Advanced navigation with traffic updates and voice controls is also standard, making it seamless to get from point A to point B. You can get these same features in the Audi, but they raise the price even further.
