The 2018 BMW 4 Series Coupe vs. the 2018 Audi A5 Coupe

  • Coming standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, the 2018 BMW 4 Series will provide you with just that much more control and engagement on the road than the 2018 Audi A5's relatively-inferior 7-speed automatic transmission will allow.
  • While the BMW 4 Series' standard engine is less powerful than the Audi A5's engine, you can upgrade the 4 Series to have a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine capable of achieving 320 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. The Audi A5's only engine option hits a considerably weaker 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.
  • Standard rear-wheel drive on the 2018 BMW 4 Series gives you a true sports car driving experience; while the 2018 A5 comes with standard all-wheel drive, the driving feel just won't appeal to true luxury-performance purists the same way.
  • With optional adaptive cruise control and parking assistance technologies, the base BMW 4 Series model can be outfitted to make your drive as convenient and care-free as you'd like. The Audi A5, on the other hand, only offers these features on higher trim levels.
  • Taller drivers will be delighted to discover than the BMW 4 Series provides more front head and leg room, as well as more rear leg and shoulder room, than the Audi A5. Even the longest road trips will be more comfortable in BMW's model.
  • Pop open the truck and discover a spacious 15.7 cubic feet of cargo space for all your luggage and shopping bags in the BMW 4 Series. The Audi A5, on the other hand, only provides a disappointingly smaller cargo area of 11.6 cubic feet.
  • Last but certainly not least, the base 2018 BMW 4 Series provides you with a whopping 12 exterior and interior colors to choose from while customizing your ride's appearance. The Audi A5 sadly only offers 11 exterior colors and a pitifully limited choice of only 5 interior colors. When it comes to getting the look you want, the 4 Series is miles ahead.
