Audi vs. Mercedes-Benz

Audi vs. Mercedes-Benz

Both Audi and Mercedes-Benz are luxury car brands whose models offer a wide variety of comforts and high performance. While Bay Area drivers may be content with either an Audi or Mercedes-Benz vehicle, one thing is for sure: Mercedes-Benz reliability can’t be beaten. On the whole, Mercedes-Benz models provide stronger engine options, higher efficiency, and a larger selection of interior features. Below, we’ve compared the two brands side by side for Milpitas and Union City drivers.

Audi vs. Mercedes-Benz: Warranty

Buying a new car for your Union City travels? Whether you choose a new Mercedes-Benz or Audi model, you’ll be backed by a generous warranty. Both luxury car brands offer a 4-year/50,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty.


Audi vs. Mercedes-Benz: Certified Pre-Owned Program

While both the Audi and Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned programs come with a 12-month/unlimited-mile CPO warranty, Mercedes-Benz offers exclusive benefits that Audi doesn’t. For example, only Mercedes-Benz provides a 7-day/500-mile exchange privilege, in case you change your mind later on.

Audi Q5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC has a starting MSRP of $40,700, while the 2019 Audi Q5 starts at $42,950 MSRP. Although the GLC is more cost-effective, the model also offers many standard convenience features that are either optional or not offered on the Q5, including front power memory seats. What’s more, the GLC offers more cargo space. While the Q5 offers 53.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, the GLC provides up to 56.5 cubic feet.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC

Audi A4 vs. Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class provides stronger performance than the Audi A4. The C-Class is powered by a 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine that generates 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The A4, on the other hand, comes equipped with a standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that produces 188 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. The C-Class handles more smoothly as well. The C-Class has a 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission, while the A4 comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Audi A3 vs. Mercedes-Benz CLA

Both the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA and 2019 Audi A3 are powered by 2.0L turbo inline-4 engines. However, the CLA gets more power, generating 208 hp, while the A3 produces 184 hp. The CLA also offers features not included on the A3, including 14-way power-adjustable front seats and front seat memory settings.


Audi Q3 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLA

Like the Audi A3 vs. Mercedes-Benz CLA, the 2018 Audi Q3 and the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA share the same 2.0L inline-4 engine, with the GLA generating more power. While the GLA produces 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, the Q3 produces only 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. The GLA is more efficient, too. The GLA comes equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission and creates a smoother ride when compared to the Q3 model’s 6-speed automatic.
