2015 Audi A6 vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A6 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A6 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A6 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A6 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz E-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 A6 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A6 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Audi A6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
The Audi A6 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A6 is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A6 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Audi A6 has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi A6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
