Compare The New 2020 Audi A4 vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Models

How much is a logo worth to you? After all, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300 isn't more comfortable, more stylish or better performing than the 2020 Audi A4 sedan. But it does cost a whole lot more. Besides all that, maybe we're biased, but we think the four Audi rings look even better than the Mercedes badge leading the way. Find out why the 2020 Audi A4 is a smarter investment than the 2020 Mercedes C-Class sedan below! The experts at Audi Columbus have compared both models side by side in the key areas of comfort, technology, performance and style.

Audi A4 Standard Leather

COMFORT: 2020 Audi A4 vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300

These vehicles are extremely similar in size, but inside the 2020 Audi A4 you'll find that a lot more luxury comes standard. For instance, where BMW and Mercedes-Benz provide their own synthetic leatherette upholstery on their competing sports sedans as standard, the 2020 Audi A4 features genuine leather upholstery. Heated front seats are the kind of feature you just don't live without once you've gotten used to them, and they're standard on the Audi A4 too. But that, too, will cost you extra as an option on the 2020 Mercedes C 300. And while the Mercedes sedan comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, the entry-level 2020 Audi A4 boasts tri-zone automatic climate control with dedicated rear seat controls. That means your rear-seat passengers enjoy a front-seat level of climate customization in the Audi sedan. Audi simply gives you more luxury for less!


Audi A4 Virtual Cockpit

TECHNOLOGY: 2020 Audi A4 vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300

Both these vehicles come standard with a 10" touchscreen multimedia system and all the gadgets you're looking for from your next car: USB charging ports, Apple CarPlay™ / Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity and much more. It's on the outside where you'll find one important difference: the Audi A4 has an updated look for the 2020 model year that now includes available Audi signature dynamic LED taillights and Matrix-design LED headlights. These lights will animate to begin and end your drive with a flourish and the turn indicators will illuminate progressively when signaling your intentions -- for a level of style that the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300 just can't compete with.

Audi A4 Front Wheel Drive

PERFORMANCE: 2020 Audi A4 vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300

Entry-level 2020 Audi A4 models with front-wheel drive make a bit less power than the 2020 Mercedes C 300, but it's a better vehicle to live with each day. It'll provide the sporty acceleration you crave, but you'll be glad for better winter performance from the familiar, reliable front-wheel drive powertrain. Base Mercedes C 300 models have rear-wheel drive which means reduced traction and control in wet or icy weather. And while both vehicles are available with optional all-wheel drive, the 2020 Audi A4 with the quattro® AWD system comes with a significant boost in power! 248 available horsepower even makes the 2020 Audi A4 faster from 0-60 MPH than the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300 4MATIC sedan according to Car and Driver.


Audi A4 Matrix Design Headlights

HIGH-BEAM ASSIST: 2020 Audi A4 vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300

Taking some of the stress out of driving on those rural two-lane roads at night, standard high-beam assist monitors the road ahead for oncoming traffic and dims your high-beams automatically -- so your brights don't blind other drivers. A similar feature is available on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300, but it'll cost you more as an optional extra.
