Serving Fort Mitchell, KY, Cincinnati, OH, and Newport, KY

There are many high-quality, elegant midsize luxury sedans on the market today from which consumer can choose. Top brands have refined their art in auto production to meet the evolving technology, luxury, and consumer taste. The famous German brand Mercedes-Benz has been in the industry for decades supplying luxury sedans. This year marks another debut of a top-quality entry-level midsize sedan, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. It is an excellent choice for those seeking to colonize the world of luxury sedans for the first time.

On the other end of the scope is the 2017 Audi A6 which poses a stiff competition to the E-class. The Audi brand has also been vocal with their production of head-turning and highly performing luxury cars. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Audi A6 both serve the same purposes, and where one flops, the other rises. Here is our detailed comparison between these two high-end midsize sedans of 2017.


The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has an advantage over the 2017 Audi A6 with regards to its almost self-governing safety features. The A6 has some great perks such as parking assist, adaptive cruise control and rearview mirror. These features are available in the standard trim of the 2017 E-Class too in addition to other autonomous features like Drive Pilot and Active Lane Changing assistant. The 2017 E-Class almost lets the drivers relax as it drives itself, thanks to the several sensors and intelligence installed in it. Once you activate the turn signal, this luxury sedan will automatically change lane when it is most appropriate.


Despite the fact that the Audi A6 has more horsepower as compared to the Mercedes-Benz E-class, it takes longer to hit 60mph than its competitor. That is an attribute of the exceptionally well-crafted transmission of the 2017 E-Class. Mercedes-Benz 9-speed transmission made debut this year and offers the E-class with two additional gears. As a result, the car brags of more acceleration, more ride comfort, and better efficiency as compared to the Audi A6. That is not to say that the dual-clutch transmission isn’t tempting. It, however, can give you trouble before you reach the 100,000-mile milestone. The double clutch performs better for those who like a hands-on driving experience on the track.


Both the 2017 E-Class and the Audi A6 have interior features like leather seating and fold-down back seats. However, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers a versatile 40/20/40 folding design as compared to the A6’s 60/40 folding configuration. This is a plus for the E-Class drivers in the sense that they can store larger items while still offering space for two passengers at the back seat. The 12.3-inch screen that spreads across the front dashboard, coupled with the steering wheel controls for the infotainment system gives the E-Class a touch of elegance and cutting edge ergonomics.

The standard luxury features of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class even on its base trim makes it hard to beat when compared to the A6. These two sedans are great, and you can only make your choice after having a test drive of either or both of the two. Therefore, schedule your test drive for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and find out how it compares to the high performance 2017 Audi A6.
