2017 E 300 Sedan vs. 2017 Audi A6

2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 Sedanvs. 2018 Audi A6

If you’re in the market for a mid-level luxury sedan, chances are you’ve stumbled across the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6 Sedans. At the base level, these two vehicles excel in performance, comfort, and safety. Even so, the E 300 and A6 Premium Sedans’ level of value may be comparable—but it’s not equal. To help Las Vegas and Paradise drivers choose their next luxury sedan wisely, Fletcher Jones Imports has put together the following comparison, outlining the differences between the renowned E-Class and A6.

Performance and Handling

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 and 2018 Audi A6 Premium Sedans feature a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine. At first glance, the A6 Premium seems like the better performer with 11 more horsepower and slightly higher fuel economy ratings. Taking a closer look, however, reveals some differences in terms of features. For example, the following are offered on the E 300, but not the A6:

  • 9-Speed Automatic Transmission: The A6 comes standard with a 7-speed automatic, while the new E-Class brags a wider variety of gear ratios that change almost imperceptibly.
  • Optional Interactive Adaptive Variable Suspension: Unavailable on the base A6, the E 300 Sedan’s interactive adaptive variable suspension (AIR BODY CONTROL®) uses sensors and pressurized air spring-struts to adapt to changing road surfaces.

Luxuries and Technologies

When it comes to interior panache, the Mercedes-Benz E 300 and Audi A6 represent their respective brands with pride. Genuine wood trim, a central infotainment screen, HomeLink, powered front seats, and a power sunroof are standard for both. The E 300 may be the entry-level E-Class Sedan, but the luxury and intelligence it displays is nothing short of revolutionary. That being said, the A6 simply can’t compete against its feature set. Unlike the A6, the E 300 includes:

  • Touch Control steering wheel-mounted buttons
  • 64-color LED ambient lighting
  • Optional cooled front seats
  • Optional intelligent cruise control (Distance Pilot DISTRONIC®)
  • Optional electronic trunk lid (HANDSFREE ACCESS®)

Safety Systems

Safety-wise, the Mercedes-Benz E 300 Sedan and Audi A6 Premium share many similarities, including a five-star front safety rating from the NHTSA. Multiple airbags, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a pre-collision system come standard on both. That’s where the similarities end, though. Again, the E 300 positions itself leaps and bounds ahead of the A6 with exclusive tech-savvy features:

  • Car-to-X Communication—allows Spring Valley E-Class drivers to send traffic and weather alerts with one another.
  • PRESAFE® Sound— automatically emits “pink noise” via the audio system to prepare occupants for the sound of a possible impact.
