2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Audi A4

 

Are you weighing your options for luxury sedans in Brampton? If the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and 2019 Audi A4 have made your shortlist, you may be wondering which is the better value. While Audi has long been staunch competition for Mercedes-Benz, in the case of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. Audi A4, we think the winner is clear. Compare these two sedans side-by-side below to learn more!

C-Class vs. A4: Engines & Performance

How do the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4 compare in terms of performance? Here’s a quick comparison of their engines and specs:

  • Base Engine: At the base level, the C-Class C 300 4MATIC® comes equipped with a 255-hp 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine that generates 273 lb-ft of torque. The Audi A4 40 TFSI Komfort S tronic, on the other hand, gets a much weaker engine — a 188-hp 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine rated at 236 lb-ft of torque.
  • Transmission: You’ll enjoy smoother shifting on Caledon streets when you get behind the wheel of the C-Class, thanks to its 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission. The A4 comes with a 7-speed automatic with fewer gear ratios.
  • Top-Tier Engine: The Audi A4 maxes out at 248 hp. The C-Class, however, is available in performance-oriented AMG® configurations that deliver up to 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

C-Class vs. A4: Premium Features

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4 are part of the same segment — compact luxury sedans — so it makes sense that they would offer many of the same features. When you get down to brass tacks, though, the C-Class pulls ahead with the following:

  • 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive: The C-Class Sedan comes standard with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive — an intelligent system that automatically allocates torque to the wheels that need it most. Audi quattro® is available on the A4, but you’ll need to upgrade to a higher trim level to get it.
  • Memory Settings: The front seats inside the C-Class feature memory settings, so you can store your preferred seating position. This feature is optional for the A4.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: Unavailable on the A4, ATTENTION ASSIST® is a driver attention monitor that learns your driving behaviours and lets you know when it’s time to take a break from driving on Orangeville roads.
  • PRESAFE® Sound: This feature is an extension of the standard PRESAFE® system; it plays a “pink noise” over the audio system if an accident seems imminent to help protect your hearing.
  • 64-Colour Ambient Interior Lighting: Set the tone for your drives around Georgetown by choosing from 64 driver-selectable colours. This feature isn’t available on the A4.
