Audi may have had the exclusivity for over 25 years with its all wheel drive, but unfortunately, that exclusivity is virtually gone with the introduction of the 4Matic system for Mercedes. The new S-class 4Matic was put to the test against the more “experienced” Audi A8 quattro.
Go to Autobild to read the whole comparison test, or scroll down for the result.
Not only is the S-class the winner because of the amazingly good all-wheel drive, but it can do nearly everything better than the Audi. It offers more space, accelerates faster, is more comfortable and brakes better. The hour of the A8 strikes with engaged driving fashion. The sporty handling remains unequaled. In addition, Audi’s price tag is clearly more favorably than Mercedes.
