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 E-Class. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A7.

Convenience
The Audi A7 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Audi A7 is somewhat more expensive than 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 A7 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A7 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 A7, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A7 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A7 has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
