2017 Audi A4 vs Mercedes C-Class: View From A Different Angle

By  | 

Just because the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has bagged more sales in the compact luxury segment, it doesn’t mean that the car is the best choice around. Putting sales aside, you will begin to notice that there are more attractive options in the segment than the C-Class.

One of them is the all-new Audi A4 which happens to be one better than the C-Class or the C300 to be exact. The A4 relies on a 2L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that can develop 252hp and 273ft-lbs of torque. This is more than what the C300 is capable of offering.

Furthermore, the new A4 is also more economical than the C300. The A4 is rated to return 7.7l/100km and this is about 0.1km/100km better than the C300. It may not sound like much but the numbers prove that the A4 is simply the better car.

The only department where the C-Class is unbeatable is interior styling. The C-Class, despite being an entry-level luxury from Mercedes, has an exquisite cabin that is also comfortable.
