Compare the Legendary 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class to the Stylish and Capable 2019 Audi A6

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a legend among luxury cars--and not without reason. It's known to be one of the most extravagant, plush, and over-the-top premium midsize sports sedans on the market. But, when you take a look at what the new Audi A6 has to offer, you might start questioning everything you've ever thought about what a luxury car should, or can, do. It's true that the Mercedes has the upper hand in sheer equipment lists with frivolous features, but the Audi A6 takes a different, more serious, approach to driving pleasure, sportsmanship, and ergonomic comfort.

Dig deeper into the similarities and differences of the Audi A6 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan (the Mercedes does offer an available coupe, convertible, and wagon configuration, but we're going to keep our comparison strictly to the sedan--as powertrains and features are identical across the E-Class configurations).
