High-End Performance

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and 2017 Audi A6 both come with a base turbocharged 2.0L inline-four engine that produces similar levels of horsepower and torque.

The most powerful engine on the 2017 Audi A6 is a supercharged 3.0L V6 that tops out at 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque.

Standard Features

These are both luxury sedans, so it likely comes as little surprise to most drivers in Elk Grove and Carmichael that both of these models come with standard features like keyless entry—called KEYLESS GO® on the Mercedes-Benz model—as well as a sunroof, climate control, Bluetooth®, and power front seats. Unlike the Audi A6, though, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class base model also comes standard with ambient cabin lighting and advanced technologies like a portable Wi-Fi hotspot, voice-activated controls, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone app integration. Additionally, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class gets a standard 12.3-inch display screen, while the Audi A6 only gets a standard 6.5-inch display screen.

Advcanced Safety

Both of these luxury sedans come with top safety ratings, a full suite of airbags, stability and traction control, and access to an abundance of driver assist safety technologies. However, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class features a number of unique innovations that you won’t find on the Audi A6, including a PRESAFE® with sound system that recognizes when a collision or rollover is about to take place, tightens the front seat belts, adjusts the front passenger seat, closes windows and sunroof, and emits “pink noise” to prepare your ears for the sound of a collision, as well as Car-to-X Communication, which allows your vehicle to communicate with other Mercedes-Benz models in the area.
