Luxury cars like the Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series offer both an exciting drive and premium style. So, which one has what you're looking for in your next ride? Maguire Audi Ithaca helps drivers in Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton decide with this Audi A5 vs. BMW 4 Series comparison.

Audi A5 vs BMW 4 Series Capability

The 2019 Audi A5 is available in three different styles, a coupe, a cabriolet, and a sportback model that has the 4-door convenience of a sedan, plus the rounded cargo area of a hatchback. All three of these options run on an exciting powertrain and are available on top of a sport-tuned suspension.

All of the Audi A5 models are equipped with quattro® all-wheel drive, too. This dependable system comes standard and helps you maintain control and grip the road whether you're cruising the highway on a summer day or running errands in the middle of winter.

The BMW 4 Series is also available in three styles. Its coupe, convertible, and 4-door models also come with a performance-inspired engine and suspension. While all-wheel drive is available for them, it's not standard.

Audi A5 vs BMW 4 Series Infotainment System

Both the 2019 Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series feature a refined interior with lots of features. Up front, each luxury car has a high-definition screen on top of the dashboard for your infotainment system.

Each system is Bluetooth® compatible, so you can make hands-free phone calls and stream music, podcasts, and audiobooks from your smartphone. They also allow you to get some variety in your playlist with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. Plus, you can find the best route to your destination with a navigation system.

The Audi A5 also gives you access to all your favorite smartphone apps by being compatible with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. The BMW 4 Series comes with Apple CarPlay™, but it excludes some smartphone users by not offering Android Auto™.

Audi A5 vs BMW 4 Series Interior

The 2019 Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series both feature a stylish interior with leather seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and classic accents throughout the cabin such as wood-grain or aluminum inlays. Inside each luxury car you'll find plenty of comfortable space too with seating for up to five people.

Both vehicles feature plenty of information when you're behind the wheel too. In place of an instrument cluster, the Audi A5 gives you the Audi Virtual Cockpit. This 12.5-inch customizable screen offers both classic and infotainment modes and can show you detailed maps for your navigation. The BMW 4 Series has a smaller 10.25-inch screen that looks more like a traditional instrument cluster.
