2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2016 Audi A5 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class as you will with the Audi A5, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi A5, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Audi A5 have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Audi A5. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Audi A5.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A5.
