2016 Audi S5 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi S5, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 S5 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 S5 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Audi S5 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Audi S5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The Audi S5 has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S5 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.
