The world of luxury sedans is increasingly competitive, with models like the 2018 Audi A5 frequently attempting to topple the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Sedan from its position at the head of the segment. Audi has made a notably strong showing — strong enough to make us wonder if they’ll overtake any C-Class model in the future, but not nearly enough to make us worry at present.

Powertrain Engineering

At first, there seems to be little to divide the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Sedan powertrain from than of the 2018 Audi A5. Each model draws up to 273 lb-ft of torque from a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but it’s the transmission rather than the engine that deserves a closer look.

Only the Mercedes-Benz delivers a 9-speed automatic. This all-new transmission boasts a greater range of ratios, allowing for specialized performance across the power band and shorter steps between gears. As you cruise between Beaumont, Lake Charles, and Lafayette, you’ll find shifts almost imperceptible and power delivery smooth, flawless, and practically seamless.

Safety Technology

It’s hard to imagine a manufacturer capable of rivalling Mercedes-Benz for driver-assistance supremacy. Just check out the innovative safety features present with the new Mercedes-Benz C 300 Sedan:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: The first system of its kind continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, alerting you if drowsiness is detected.
  • PRESAFE®: This Mercedes-Benz first detects possible collisions, then tightens seat belts, adjusts the passenger seat, and closes windows and sunroof to protect you from harm.
  • Speed Limit Assist: Works with the navigation system to display speed limit information on your instrument cluster display.

Those features just aren’t available with the 2018 Audi A5.

Comfort and Convenience

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 is happy to make comfort amenities such as ventilated seats available across all models, while the 2018 Audi A5 reserves them exclusively for higher trims. The Audi also lacks the following standout Mercedes-Benz features:

  • Air Balance Cabin-Air Purification: Dual activated charcoal filters and ionizer create an electrical charge for the same fresh-air sensation you experience after a summer storm.
  • Touchpad Controller: The advanced touchpad reads swipes, pinches, and even your handwriting.

The 2018 Audi A5 Continues to Play Catch-Up with the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Sedan
