Power & Performance

While both of these sedans offer sleek lines and a variety of luxury features, there are a few key differences between the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission compared to the A4's 7-speed option. This greater gear ratio offers improved performance, a quiet cabin, and more flexibility when accelerating. Another main difference between these two vehicles is the drive configuration. This ultimately comes down to driver preference, however, the rear-wheel drive in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class provides exceptional handling even with such a powerful engine. If speed and power are what you're after, it's difficult for the Audi A4 to compete with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. With 255 hp @ 5,800-6,100 rpm and incredible torque, going from 0-60 is no task for the C-Class. See the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in action, visit Mercedes-Benz of South Orlando for a test drive.
