2016 Audi A7 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Audi A7 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 A7 or the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 A7 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A7 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A7, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
The Audi A7 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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 is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower 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.
