Sometimes, you need something better than a typical sedan. Sure, they offer plenty of interior space and are easy to drive, but premium models offer a different driving experience. If you like the idea of driving a premium sedan through the streets of Dallas, Clarks Summit, and Mountain Top, it might be time to make the upgrade.

Choosing which premium sedan is right for you can be tricky, which is why we've taken two of the best sedans on the market and put them against each other. The 2018 Audi A4 and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 both have plenty of exciting features to offer, but only one can be the best. Find out which in our comprehensive 2018 Audi A4 vs. Mercedes-Benz C 300 comparison, which was crafted by the experts at Audi Wyoming Valley.


If you're looking for power, both vehicles have plenty. Each is home to a turbocharged 2.0L engine, but the Audi A4 offers a bit more power. The 2018 A4 is capable of producing an incredible 252 horsepower, while the 2018 C 300 can only muster 241 horsepower. Despite the additional boost of power, the Audi A4 is more fuel efficient than the Mercedes-Benz C 300. The C 300 earns a respectable EPA-estimated 24 city/33 highway MPG, but the A4 achieves an EPA-estimated 27 city/37 highway MPG.1

Both sedans also feature advanced all-wheel drive systems. The 4MATIC on the C-Class is incredibly useful in helping you maintain control when behind the wheel, but few do a better job than the famous Audi quattro® all-wheel drive. Standard on all but the ultra trims, the A4's quattro® all-wheel drivetrain takes control to the next level, optimizing your grip and agility on the road no matter what road conditions you encounter.

Interior Space

Performance isn't the only thing that matters in a premium sedan. You deserve a relaxing and luxurious interior, which you'll find in both the Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C 300. The A4 offers a bit more rear legroom, though, with 35.7 inches of room for back-seat passengers, while the C 300 provides 35.2 inches. There's even more headroom in the back row for A4 passengers, with rear headroom measuring at 37.4 inches. Rear-row passengers of the C 300 will only have 37.1 inches of headroom.

Plus, you'll have more cargo space in the Audi A4-13 cubic feet, to be exact. The Mercedes-Benz C 300 falls short, again, with its 12.6 cubic feet of cargo volume. 

Technology Features

When it comes to innovation in automotive technology, you can depend on Audi to be at the forefront. It offers incredibly advanced technology, such as:

  • Traffic Sign Recognition: This camera-based safety system helps detect speed limit signs to display the information on the Audi virtual cockpit.
  • MMI® touch with handwriting-recognition technology: With this cutting-edge feature, you can write a command rather than select a bunch of letters or numbers. Also, you can easily navigate maps by moving you finger across the touchpad.
  • Audi connect®: Integrate Google Earth™, weather updates, traffic conditions, and more on this intuitive system.

Although the Mercedes-Benz C 300 offers some neat technology features, it can't compete with the state-of-the-art Audi A4 technology.
