2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Audi A4

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a great example of a versatile small luxury vehicle. It is one of the most competitive cars in its segment because of the premium quality that distinguishes it from the rest. It is a gorgeous car that has equally striking moves to match.

Another highly-rated compact vehicle is the 2019 Audi A4. Just like the C-Class, this particular model is praised for being a well-rounded car despite having a smaller body. Both cars represent a complete package that is expected from a luxury brand.

Design & Style

The new C-Class has a swoopy styling that is delivered with poise and grace. The high-greenhouse silhouette works well, especially with the added chrome details. The cabin is also attractive with a curvy dash. It can be draped with glossy wood, open-pore ash, and even aluminum to create a sense of personalized style. The center stack looks elegant and adds a classy vibe to the C-Class.

The A4 looks impressive but its styling cues are more conservative than other Audis. The sharp lines that define its edges saved it from looking too plain or boring. The cabin is functional but the layout is not as stylish as the C-Class.

Technology & Safety

Among the many cutting-edge features of the C-Class is its innovative infotainment system. It is well-equipped to entertain but the best thing about its array of advanced tech features is that it has plenty of standards and optional safety gear. It is among the safest cars today with its well-calibrated driver-assist features.

The A4 runs Audi’s MMI for its infotainment. Although it is an innovative setup, it can be a little challenging to learn how to use it.


There’s a wealth of options for the C-Class’ performance but most would be happy with the standard 255-hp engine. It is turbocharged to deliver responsive steering. It has sufficient power and exceptional handling. The acceleration always feels strong and the transmission feels smooth. There is also the option to set the car on Sport mode if you want a livelier driving experience.

One of the disappointing features of the A4 is that it only has a 188-hp engine. While it is excellent at holding a steady acceleration, its steering is its ultimate weakest point. It feels numb across three available steering settings and it is not as engaging to drive compared to the C-Class.

The Bottom Line

There are too many reasons why the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is better compared to the 2019 Audi A4. What makes the A4 a sore loser is its lack of feedback from steering which significantly limits the driver involvement.
