Serving Milwaukee, WI

Are you torn between upgrading to the 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A4? As smaller luxury models, these options seemingly have many similarities on the surface. However, after you take a deeper look at the driving experience that they deliver, you will see that these models are stunningly different in essential areas. Are you ready to dig deeper to uncover all that the C-Class and the A4 bring to the table?


Your look at the C-Class and the A4 will begin on the exterior, where you will find unique approaches to styling. The C-Class is a two-door coupe that strikes the perfect balance between sophisticated and athletic design elements. This model has a tapered roof with a cascading hood. The definition on the hood highlights the double-bar grille, and it corresponds perfectly with the diamond-shaped LED headlights. The C-Class’s sides boast several contouring elements and accents that taper inward to create a sense of momentum. The A4, on the other hand, is a four-door sedan with a stately presence. It has a rather nondescript, smooth hood and a tall roof. A hexagonal, black grille almost entirely encompasses the rounded nose. Small, segmented headlights flank this grille. The side definition on the A4 is relatively horizontal.


The appeal of the 2022 C-Class continues inside the sophisticated cabin. The cabin’s style is accentuated by fine leather, aluminum, and open-pore wood elements. The center stack and console have a sleek, flush façade that is decidedly contemporary. At the top of the center stack, you will find three rounded air vents topped by a floating display screen. Comparatively, the Audi A4 for 2022 has a cluttered look defined by various features packed into the console and center stack. These include a square display screen, a long row of air vents, traditional climate system controls, a push-button ignition, driving mode selector knobs, and a chunky gear selector.


Your review of the C-Class and the A4 takes you to their performance capabilities. Regardless of the trim level, you select, the C-Class will be well-equipped with a turbo four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine. This 255-horsepower, mild-hybrid system, is combined with a nine-speed auto transmission. Two engines are available for the 2022 Audi A4. The base engine is a turbo four-cylinder, 201-horsepower engine. If you choose to pay a higher price for the S-Line trim level, your A4 will have a 261-horsepower engine. The A4’s engines are incorporated with a seven-speed automatic transmission.
