Audi A4 vs. Mercedes-Benz C-Class

  • Accolades: The Audi A4 has driven away with two very promising awards in . It was the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick with its optional LED headlights and high beam assist features. Then it received a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association's New Car Assessment Program. Both awards help to distinguish the Audi A4 from the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
  • Fuel Efficiency: Sedans already have an advantage when it comes to fuel efficiency given their size, but the Audi A4 wins the fuel-economy bout concerning city and highway fuel economy. The Audi A4 model gets 37 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city compared to the mere 24/33 city/highway combination that drivers from Florence will get if they choose the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan.
  • Cargo Capacity: Five-passenger sedans simply can't match the cargo capacity that an SUV offers, but the Audi A4 model does beat out the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan when it comes to cargo capacity. With 13.0 cubic-feet of cargo volume in the rear, drivers will have more room to store what they need to store.
  • Interior Comfort: Drivers who prefer leather in their car will love the standard leather seating that comes in the Audi A4. With four colors to choose from, this is a great way for drivers to customize their A4's interior. Leather seating is only optional in the  Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Plus, drivers and front-seat passengers will be grateful for Audi's standard heated seats in its A4 model during the winter, which can't be said for its competitor.
  • Price: When you choose Mercedes-Benz, you're buying a brand name that specializes in luxury with excessive price tags to match. With Audi, you're buying or leasing a combination of reliability and class. Therefore, the price on the Audi A4 model will align more with the quality and functionality you're buying or leasing. Drivers will know it was worth it when they enjoy the smooth, effortless ride Audi provides.
