2016 Audi A7 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-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 E-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A7 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
The Audi A7 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 A7 is somewhat more expensive 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 A7 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A7 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-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 E-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A7 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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