When you want the best in a car, you don't have to look any further than an Audi or a Mercedes-Benz, two of Germany's premier auto manufacturers. Auto buyers in Eastchester, New York are finding it hard to differentiate between the two, which is why we have created this guide. Read our car comparison to find out why the 2018 Audi S4 just edges out the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Design & Style

The Audi has had a slight makeover this time round, with the nose being lowered and the headlights raised. The famous grille takes up the majority of the front of the car, with the large air intakes giving the car a muscular front. It has standard LED lights fitted. The Mercedes has a sexy looking shape, with its upright grille flanked by styled LED headlights.

Inside the C-Class cabin, the seats have power control for the front seat passenger and driver while the finish is all wood. Three is a COMAND interface coupled with its 7.0-inch display, Bluetooth, AM/FM/XM and USB inputs. Most other options for the C-Class will cost you an additional amount of money, like the Burmester sound system, heated leather seats, LED headlights and panoramic sunroof. In Audi's cabin, you are seated in deep bucket seats with standard massagers in them and automatic climate control. There is a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system and Audi's excellent Virtual Cockpit, with a 12.3-inch screen

The A4 has collision-avoiding technology with its standard low-speed forward-collision warning with emergency braking. There is the normal full complement of airbags, a rear-view camera and stability control. Blind-spot monitoring and rear automatic braking have also been added as part of the standard package.
