You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi TTS as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.
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 TTS will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

The Audi TTS and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.
