2014 Audi S4 vs. 2014 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 S4 than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi S4 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi S4, due to its tank size and 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). The Audi S4 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz C-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 S4 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S4 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi S4, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The Audi S4 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 S4 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S4 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Audi S4 as you will in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The Audi S4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
