The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the fifth model year version of the brand’s mid-size entry. It is undeniably one of the best-looking cars in its segment and precisely the reason why many people are drawn into buying it.
The 2019 Audi A5 comes back with minor changes from the previous model year. It is a tough competition between the C-Class and the A5 since these cars are always pitted against each other. Nobody can say which one is the winner or the loser because both are great in their own little ways. But for argument’s sake, here is a comparison to identify which one deserves the top spot.
There are light exterior revisions for the current C-Class. The full-headlights come standard instead of being just as an option last year. It now has crossbars on the bumper openings. The grille also sports a classy diamond-pattern. The cabin remains fabulous with minor updates, like the coffee-colored wood trim.
Although the A5 had a slow evolution, the current one has a cleaner and leaner exterior. Its styling is a combination of the A4, the A5, and the A7. Many people would find it weird to see that the A5 looks very similar to its brothers when viewed from different angles.
The C-Class has excellent gear and options for its infotainment. It runs the COMAND® system that may be controlled using the touchpad, roller knob, and voice commands. It also has a stunning audio system that is highlighted by cut-metal speaker screens. Their new safety features too, like the speed-limit assist and an active lane change assist.
The A5 has the easy to use MMI infotainment system. The 12.3-inch display is both functional and gorgeous. It also has basic driver aids such as parking sensors, and a surround-view camera system.
The 2.0-liter engine for the base trim is already powerful with up to 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Driving is exactly how being in a luxury car would: plenty of power, great handling, and a comfortable ride even through bumps. It delivers precise road feedback and stays firmly rooted even in tight corners.
The A5 has a 2.0-liter engine across all its trims. The four-cylinder engine can churn up to 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It is slightly above average when talking about daily drivability. There is a noticeable hesitation from the engine with initial acceleration.
Both cars have impressive high marks across all criteria. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, however, is a few notches higher as its interior styling is impeccable. It also has a slightly powerful engine that makes a lot of difference when on the road.
