2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan vs 2017 Audi A6

Serving San Antonio, New Braunfels, and Selma, TX

Starting at more than $52,000, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan is a luxurious four-door car. The Audi A6 is a lavish sedan that starts at just under $48,000. Equipped with the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission, 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive and AIR BODY CONTROL suspension, the E-Class Sedan delivers better performance than the Audi A6. This Mercedes-Benz model is also available with more than 10 active safety features, including the Active Brake Assist and Speed Limit Pilot.

Performance

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan is driven by a turbocharged 2.0 L engine that whips out 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque at only 1,300 RPM. Also having a 2.0 L displacement, the Audi A6’s TFSI engine has a peak output of 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque at 1,600 RPM. Engineered to conserve gasoline and minimize exhaust emissions, the ECO-START®/STOP System is standard in the E-Class Sedan. You may also manually turn on the ECO Mode from the Dynamic Select, which includes three other settings. You won’t find such fuel-saving technology in the Audi A6. This Mercedes-Benz is equipped with the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission system that has nine gear speeds. By contrast, the Tiptronic automatic transmission system in the Audi A6 is available with seven or eight gear ratios. When fitted with the 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive that includes the Electronic Traction System, the E-Class Sedan rolls smoothly on any road. Similarly, the Quattro AWD delivers reliable traction on paved services.

Handling

An electromechanical power steering system makes it easy to handle the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan. By adjusting the steering ratio, the Direct-Steer technology helps you make turns on narrow or curved roads. Having a fixed steering ratio and a rack-and-pinion design, the Audi A6’s electromechanical steering system isn’t as dynamic or responsive. For a truly sporty ride on any track, you can equip the E-Class Sedan with the AIR BODY CONTROL suspension system that comes with multiple modes. Filled with pressurized air, the springs and struts provide excellent shock absorption on rough roads. You may also install the Comfort Suspension System with the Selective Damping technology. Valves in the shock absorbers automatically release some air in order to provide maximum resistance against vibrations.

Safety

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan comes with the Distance Pilot DISTRONIC technology, which can automatically apply the brakes to prevent a front crash. Using a camera to scan local traffic signs, the Speed Limit Pilot makes sure that you don’t cruise too fast. When approaching an intersection, the Active Brake Assist and Cross-Traffic Function mitigate the potential for a crash. Side collisions are unlikely to happen when the Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Lane Change Assist take action. You should also pay attention to the Blind Spot Assist, which may issue blinking warnings in the side mirrors. Engineered to counter the effects of strong gusts, the Crosswind Assist keeps the vehicle on the right track in inclement weather. The Car-to-X Communication helps you deal with a crash. Although it’s available with the Pre Sense Plus, Adaptive Cruise Control and Side Assist, the Audi A6 falls behind the E-Class Sedan when it comes to active safety.
