Performance Comparison: 2017 Audi A4 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The base trim level of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the C300, is powered by a 2.0L Intercooled Turbo Premium I4 engine that produces up to 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with the 7-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles. While this vehicle gets excellent acceleration, the transmission is a bit slower to shift than in most competitors, including the A4.

In comparison, the 2017 Audi A4 is powered by a 4-cylinder turbocharged/turbo fuel stratified injection (TFSI) engine. This produces up to 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque-a significantly higher power production than its competitor. The vehicle's top track speed of 130 mph is incredible and the A4 has an acceleration of 6.1 seconds (from 0 to 60 mph). With its fast acceleration and easy transitions between gears, the 2017 Audi A4 is a thrill to drive and ride.

Vehicle Entertainment Technology: 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2017 Audi A4

When you take a closer look at the 2017 Audi A4 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, you see a pretty significant difference in the vehicle's standard features in the entertainment and information categories. While the A4 is loaded with some of the most advanced systems on the market in the standard trim level, the C-Class requires significant financial upgrades to get similar features.

The Audi A4 offers an infotainment system that's super easy to use. The turn dial and buttons make it easy to control without taking your attention away from your driving. And the interface software is simple to navigate, even for those with little technology experience. The 8.3-inch color display is easy to read and beautiful to look at. On the other hand, the C-Class is missing out on some pretty standard technological features, which it does offer for a steep and significant investment.
