2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2018 Audi S6 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Audi S6, making it more convenient to drive.

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 S-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi S6, 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 S-Class and the Audi S6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a little wider than the Audi S6, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi S6.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi S6.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has about the same turning radius as the Audi S6, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has less horsepower than the Audi S6, 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Audi S6. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi S6.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S6.
