Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Audi A6 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Audi A6 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35. 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 A6 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A6 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A6, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A6 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Performance
The Audi A6 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35, 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 Audi A6 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Warranty
The Audi A6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.
