2018 Audi A5 vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A5 and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi A5, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Audi A5 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A5 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Dimensions
The Audi A5 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Audi A5, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A5 and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A5 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Utility
The Audi A5 offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Audi A5 has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi A5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.
