2011 4dr Sedan supercharged 300hp 3.0L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Best styling/design in the car business. Looks much better than M-B & BMW, and performs on par (or better) than their equivalent models. see full Audi A6 / S6 review
2005 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The Audi brand is perceived as being cool and understated beauty, and most importantly it is different enough to not be classified as an aggressive driver that cuts people off. ie. BMW see full Audi A6 / S6 review
 

TrueDelta Reviews the Brand Reputation of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Brand Reputation: Pros
YearComment
2014 I tend to ignore brand reputation and image, and this is reflected in my reviews. But there's just no way to ignore that a Mercedes is a Mercedes. Audi and BMW now command similar prices, but haven't yet acquired the same mystique. They probably never will for people born before 1980. This mystique cuts both ways. The three-pointed star makes too strong a statement for some people. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
