2018 Audi A5 vs. 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class than the Audi A5, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A5 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Convenience

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). Whether you pick the Audi A5 or the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, it's going to cost you about the same.

The Audi A5 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.
