2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs 2018 Audi A6

A midsize car offers more interior space than a compact model without sacrificing maneuverability and parking practicality the way a full-size model would. In this 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs 2018 Audi A6 comparison, we are going to look at two heavy hitters in the midsize luxury car category. All models in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class lineup have been refreshed in the last two model years, with the coupe and convertible body styles getting a complete redesign for 2018, and the sedan and wagon models being updated for 2017. In contrast, the Audi A6 is available only in sedan body style and hasn't gotten a major redesign since 2012.

In sedan form, both of these models offer five passenger seating. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, with its plethora of body styles, has four seats in the coupe and convertible two-door body styles and up to seven-passenger seating on the wagon model.
