You’ll find that when you explore both the 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6, luxury comes in many forms, one of which is performance.

The Audi A6 is equipped with standard all-wheel drive, while the 2023 E-Class, at the base level, is equipped with rear-wheel drive. However, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive is available if you upgrade to a higher trim, so the 2023 E-Class offers a little more versatility.
The transmissions in these vehicles are also very similar. The Audi, for example, offers a 7-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 2023 E-Class, on the other hand, offers a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission, so the transmission in the Mercedes is a little more powerful.

One of the features that sets the Mercedes-Benz E-Class apart is its Car-to-X Communication.

Enjoying the 2023 E-Class and A6 as they are provides a great feeling. However, when you add a little music to your journey, that experience can only get better! Both vehicles offer intuitive infotainment systems. The A6 offers a 10.1-inch display, while the 2023 E-Class offers a 12.3-inch display.

The 2023 E-Class offers the unique voice-control feature as part of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience. All you’ll have to do is say “Hey Mercedes” and it can help you do a variety of things.
