2016 Audi S7 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 S7 than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi S7 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S7 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 S7 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 S7 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S7 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 S7, 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 somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S7 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Audi S7 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.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S7 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 S7 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The Audi S7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
