2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs 2018 Audi A4
Although luxury cars are a step above the economy class, not all luxury cars are the same. In fact, there can be some serious differences when it comes to quality and value, so if you're looking for a new compact sedan, we suggest you take a look at our comparison of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs the 2018 Audi A4.
Let's start by talking about engine power. With luxury models, you don't want to constantly have to move up to higher trims to get the engine power you want. With the C-Class, you don't need to, as it delivers 241 horsepower and 272 lb-ft of torque. The Audi A4 does deliver sufficient power from engines available on higher trims, but its entry level model seriously disappoints with only 190 horsepower.
