The long awaited new E-Class from Mercedes-Benz has finally arrived on our shores. We pit the E350 against the  Audi A6 3.0 TFSI to see how it fares.

Mercedes: Expensive
cons
could do with more performance
cons
expensive options

Both cars feature more standard equipment that you’ll ever need. When it comes to safety, the Merc wins hands down with its plethora of optional safety systems, such as the Attention Assist, Distronic Plus and Blind Spot Assist, amongst many others.

The E350 may be the new kid on the block, with superb cabin refinement, enviable amount of standard and safety features, but the A6 can certainly hold its fort with its stonking engine, excellent balance of ride comfort and driving dynamics. On the whole, there is not a lot between these two cars. It primarily boils down to what kind of driver you are. The enthusiasts will for sure relish in being at the helm of the A6, but as for those who prefer to have comfort, quality and safety in their executive saloons, they need not look anywhere else but at the new E-Class.

The quote for my car was fast, responsive and the highest. The transaction was fast and explanation was clear. The person who inspected my car was friendly and professional. It was a good experience with OneShift.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car. I am very happy to have decided to sell my car through "One Shift By Carousell"
