2015 Audi S4 vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi S4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi S4 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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
The Audi S4 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. When looking at overall length, the Audi S4 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi S4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as 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
The Audi S4 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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.
