2016 Audi A8 vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A8 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). The Audi A8 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz E-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. The Audi A8 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A8 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The Audi A8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
