Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A4 than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
The Audi A4 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz A-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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Audi A4. 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 A-Class and the Audi A4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is much slimmer than the Audi A4, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is slightly shorter than the Audi A4, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi A4.

In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and the Audi A4.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and the Audi A4.

Warranty
