A new automotive video show goes live and it’s produced by CNET. Dubbed CNET On Cars, the web series kicks off with a comparison between the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe and the Audi A7.

The host Brian Cooley chooses the 640i Gran Coupe model and pits it against the A7 which is powered by a supercharged 310 hp, 325 lb-ft, 3.0-liter V-6. The A7 makes use of the Quattro all-wheel drive platform.

The 640i Gran Coupe carries under the hood the N55 3.0 liter twin-scroll turbocharged unit with 315 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 330 pound-feet of torque, which comes together at 1,400 rpm and it’s flat until 4,500 rpm.

Both cars weigh roughly the same, 4200 lbs, but that doesn’t translate into equal MPG numbers: 18/28 for the Audi and 20/30 for BMW.

So who takes the win? Let’s have a look.
