Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A4 allroad than in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to the Audi A4 allroad's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A4 allroad may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi A4 allroad, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the Audi A4 allroad is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-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 A4 allroad and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 allroad is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Audi A4 allroad is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Audi A4 allroad has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 allroad is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi A4 allroad has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz E-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi A4 allroad has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi A4 allroad comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
