Both start at 29,900.

Both have turbocharged 4-cylinder engines. The Benz making 208 horsepower, the Audi making 170 or 220 horsepower depending on which engine.

Both have available AWD. Quattro probably being a bit better than 4Matic.

Both have dual-clutch transmissions, the Audi's having 6 gears, the Benz having 7.

So, what we have here is a pretty even match, most of people's choices will probably come down to what badge they want.

Conclusion: I'd just say screw it to both and buy a Buick Regal GS AWD.
