2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan vs. 2018 Audi A3 Sedan


The luxury sedan category gets more competitive with each passing year. Manufacturers are competing to offer more performance and comfort, and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the 2018 Audi A3 are no exception. If you’d like to hit the open road and enjoy everything Sacramento has to offer, you’ll want to take a look at this comparison and see which luxury sedan is best for you.

A New Standard in Performance

Both the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A3 use four-cylinder turbocharged engines in their base models, but that’s where the similarities end. Let’s check their power output numbers to see which one will get up to speed faster:

  • The 2018 C-Class C 300 delivers 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.

  • The 2018 A3 2.0T Premium can only manage 186 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque.

As you can see, the C-Class delivers big on performance.

Heart-Pounding Power

If you upgrade to a more powerful engine, the C-Class’ advantage continues to grow. Let’s see how it compares to the A3:

  • The line-leading AMG® C 63 S uses a turbocharged V8 engine that puts out 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

  • The 2.0T Prestige is outfitted with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that supplies 220 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.

With double the cylinders and more than double the horsepower, the AMG® C 63 S leaves the 2.0T Prestige in the dust.
