Comparison Review

The Audi A4 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Audi A4 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
