With more torque, more horsepower, and an additional gear to shift through in the transmission, it vastly outperforms its closest competitors.

 There are two ways that you can compare affordability between two vehicles: initial investment and cost to own. In both of these categories, there are some substantial differences between the 2016 Audi A6 and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz e350.

In terms of initial investment, the A6 is significantly more affordable than the e350. And if you're looking at the why of that, you'd have to ask the manufacturer. Because from our point of view, it should be the opposite. The 2016 Audi A6 is equipped with the latest in convenience, entertainment, and performance technology. On the other hand, the e350 is missing some standard features.

For example, while the A6 comes with leather upholstery, the e350 comes standard with imitation leather upholstery that doesn't even wear well over time. And while the 2016 A6 has exceptional fuel economy, the 2016 e350 EPA-estimated fuel economy is significantly lower.
