Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A7 than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A7.

Convenience

Cost

The Audi A7 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.
