Both cars are suitably equipped to reflect their premium positioning. They come with standard kit like electric adjustments for the front seats, factory stereo, cruise control, alloy wheels (19s on the Audi), leather and so on.

The E-Class coupe models are priced higher than their closest competitors and the E250 CGI here is no different. The Merc is roughly $24k more than the Audi. The three-pointed star does feel like the more sophisticated model but 24k is certainly a lot of money, especially when one considers that the Audi is so competent in many areas.

It's a tough choice between these two but price difference aside, the more matured side of me will take the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe while the younger and sportier side of my character will want to take home and live with the Audi A5.
