Mercedes-Benz and Audi are two of the biggest names in the luxury automobile industry. For every Mercedes-Benz vehicle, there is a comparable Audi waiting around the corner. For the CLS, this Audi is the A7. These two luxury sedans share many similarities, but they are not identical. They each have subtle strengths and weaknesses that mirror the culture of each respective brand, turning the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS vs 2016 Audi A7comparison into a treasure hunt to find the superior automobile. 

On the outside, the differences are all but missing. Aside from the dramatic arch in the back of the CLS, they could be twins! Under the hood, you'll find almost the exact same amount of horsepower. Both on the highway and in the city, you'll get exactly the same gas mileage. So who is copying who? The features all have different names but they all do the same things.  This is where you have to get creative in your search.

Digging deeper into technical specifications, we found a significant incongruence in the torque. The CLS somehow manages 30 more lb-ft than the A7 even though the CLS technically has less horsepower. What makes this torque range even more of an advantage is the 250-pound difference in  curb weight. Suddenly the CLS is looking a lot better, and for $2,000 less, the choice becomes even more obvious. Both of these German-made vehicles are celebrities on the road, but you will get a better value when you opt for the Mercedes-Benz.
