Mercedes-Benz CPO vs. Audi CPO

2017-GLE class

The Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Program is known as one of the top options in the industry, putting a like-new luxury vehicle within reach for a used-car price. Audi is one of Mercedes-Benz’s fiercest competitors, and so it’s only fitting that Audi also offers a strong CPO program. “Strong” doesn’t mean “best,” though, so it’s worth comparing the Certified Pre-Owned benefits offered by both Mercedes-Benz and Audi.

More Than Just Warranty Coverage

Both the Audi and Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned programs have high standards and offer compelling warranty coverage—but the devil, as always, is in the details.

If you want even more assurance, you can opt for up to two years of extended limited warranty coverage—that’s not an option offered by Audi. In terms of out-of-pocket costs, Audi’s Certified Pre-Owned program charges an $85 deductible for warranty-covered repairs, while the Mercedes-Benz CPO program has a $0 deductible. Audi’s nickel-and-dime approach extends to passing the warranty on—if you want to transfer your Audi CPO warranty to someone else, it’ll cost you $150, while Mercedes-Benz does not charge for this service.

The Perks

Both Certified Pre-Owned Programs offer 24/7 roadside assistance and include a vehicle history report, but Mercedes-Benz goes above and beyond by offering perks that you won’t get from Audi. Some of these perks include:

  • Vehicle Exchange Privilege: Don’t like your Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz? If that’s the case, you can exchange it for another within seven days or 500 miles. This is built in to the Mercedes-Benz CPO program—the Audi program has no such feature, and the possibility of exchange is left entirely to the discretion of the dealer.
  • Trip Interruption Coverage: If your CPO Mercedes-Benz suffers a warranty-covered breakdown more than 100 miles from home that forces you into an unexpected overnight stay, you may be eligible for reimbursement of up to $300 per day for three days.
