2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2019 Audi A5


The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is an outstanding executive sedan. This luxury mid-size sedan delivers a tasteful interior with cutting edge technology. It also handles beautifully, making the E-Class an all-around fantastic car.

The Audi A5, on the other hand, comes in various variants that include a two-door sports coupe and a five-door sedan. The Audi A5 packs power and performance in an understated package that is typical of Audi cars.

Design & Style

The 2019 E-Class keeps the classical Mercedes-Benz sedan look. This E-Class, however, is roomier than the previous model. It achieves this despite being lighter than the other models. Its interior is tasteful as one would expect from a Mercedes-Benz. Everything is ergonomically placed and is within easy reach.

The styling for the A5 hasn’t changed much either. The cabin of the A5 is comfortable and the interior is a mix of soft-touch plastics and leather. However, despite the comfort, the A5 loses when it comes to the small things that transform a car from a comfortable car to a luxurious one. These include heated rear seats, padded armrest and so on that you find on the E-Class.

Technology & Safety

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has outstanding safety and technology features. They include ‘Car to X Technology’ that connects your E-Class to a central resource that gives live updates about traffic and other conditions. It also has Drive Pilot that automatically controls the vehicle during start-stop traffic and many more.

The Audi A5 packs a host of driver assistance packages but it is simply no match for the E-Class suite of technological marvels. The Audi A5 includes smartphone connectivity and USB connectivity.


The E-Class features two kinds of engines depending on the variant you pick. One is a 2.0 turbocharged V 6 engine while the other is a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6. Both deliver a smooth yet powerful performance that can handle pretty much anything that is thrown at it. Despite being a fairly large car, the E-Class handles corners with ease and its suspension keeps the car firmly on the road.

The Audi A5 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that gives a decent performance. The seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission is highly responsive to shifts and powers up or down with no lag.

The Bottom Line

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a much better vehicle in almost every perspective. The styling and interior of the E-Class are much better and it comes with a much more impressive array of technology and safety features. Finally, the E-Class offers a much more refined performance that the Audi A5.
