2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs Audi A6

comparison between 2018 mercedes-benz e-class sedan and audi a6 sedan

The phrase “German Engineering” evokes feelings of reliability, precision and excitement. For good reason! The German automotive market is full of vehicles that have shaped the way we think about, build and use automobiles. Two of the brands that exemplify this innovative engineering paradigm are Mercedes-Benz and Audi. Both brands bring a track record of unparalleled performance and luxury to the automobile market.

The midsize sedan models offered by each help carry their distinct personalities into flagship form. For Mercedes-Benz, it’s the quietly compelling E-Class. For Audi, it’s the energetic A6. Both vehicles feature class-leading technology features, luxurious accommodation and, of course, more-than-adequate performance numbers. Although, A-B will be one of the most fun parts of your day with either, choosing either the E-Class or the A6 communicates that you care just as much about the journey as the destination.
