A midsize car offers more interior space than a compact model without sacrificing maneuverability and parking practicality the way a full-size model would. In this 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs 2018 Audi A6 comparison, we are going to look at two heavy hitters in the midsize luxury car category. All models in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class lineup have been refreshed in the last two model years, with the coupe and convertible body styles getting a complete redesign for 2018, and the sedan and wagon models being updated for 2017. In contrast, the Audi A6 is available only in sedan body style and hasn't gotten a major redesign since 2012.
Luxury car shoppers have high expectations, one of those being the expectation that a model will offer multiple options to personalize, including body style. The E-Class empowers drivers with four body styles to choose from, while the A6 falls flat with only one. The E-Class also delivers significantly more horsepower and a faster acceleration rate for a more dynamic driving experience. Both models offer all-wheel drive capability to inspire confidence in tough road conditions. Discover the new E-Class today!
