Although this is not exactly the most politically correct comparison Chris Harris has ever done for the YouTube drive channel, it's not a video you should miss.
The latest iteration of the Audi RS 6 Avant quattro has recently found it match, at least according to the principles it abides by. The 4Matic version of the E 63 AMG wagon is pretty much the closest contender it has, no matter what point of view are you using.

Unfortunately, Chris Harris decided to compare the Audi model to the E 63 AMG's equivalent of a Victoria's Secret Angel sister – the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake.

On top of that, the CLS is the “standard” version, without the 4Matic all-wheel drive system, which at least would have brought it much closer as a competitor to the Ingolstadt wagon.

Don't worry, though, we don't hold any grudges, especially since we're fans of the man's video reviews and this example makes no exception. Plus, Chris Harris is based in the UK, where as far as we know the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake doesn't get the optional 4Matic system. We were just stating what should be obvious from the start of the video – it's not exactly a fair comparison.
