2017 Audi A7 vs. 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A7 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 A7.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A7 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz C-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). The Audi A7 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi A7 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A7 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi A7, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A7 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The Audi A7 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A7 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi A7 offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Audi A7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
