Standard Performance for the Audi A5 vs. BMW 4 Series

When it comes to power and overall performance, both the 2018 Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series do not disappoint. Both offer an all-wheel drive system as well as an adaptive suspension for a smooth and stable ride even when traveling through rough and bumpy streets.

They also generate tons of power. With the standard 2.0L TFSI® four-cylinder engine in the Audi A5, you'll experience up to 252 horsepower and it can go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 5.7 seconds.

The BMW 4 Series delivers a robust available powertrain, but its standard performance lacks power compared to the Audi A5. Overall, BMW 4 Series can only produce 248 horsepower with its standard 2.0L four-cylinder engine.

Interior Luxuries and Technologies

If you're in the market for a well-equipped new luxury car, the Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series are excellent choices. With tons of premium materials adorning the interior of each vehicle and many comfort features, they can make any errand or daily commute feel much more sophisticated and luxurious.

The 2018 Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series both come with cutting-edge infotainment systems as well. The one in the Audi A5 includes available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® connectivity. On top of that, it offers the MMI® navigation plus system for directions, points of interests, and a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight passenger devices.

Best of all, you can control the system in the Audi A5 with MMI® touch, a handwriting-recognition system that lets you "write" navigation entries and search phrases for easier and more convenient operation.

The BMW 4 Series is comparably well-equipped. It features an advanced infotainment system, a great navigation system, and even a Wi-Fi hotspot. What it doesn't have, however, is a handwriting-recognition system.

Cutting-Edge Safety

In addition to innovative interior technologies, the 2018 Audi A5 also comes with a slew of driver-assist safety features. This includes Audi pre sense® and Vehicle Exit Assist.

Audi pre sense® can detect the possibility of an accident and prepares the vehicle for impact. It can also apply automatic braking if needed to better ensure your safety. Vehicle Exit Assist activates an LED alert to let you know if a car or cyclist is approaching from behind when the doors are opened.

Other safety features for the 2018 Audi A5 include:

  • Audi side assist with Audi pre sense® rear
  • Collision Avoidance Assist
  • Turn Assist
  • Audi Adaptive Cruise Control With Stop & Go
  • Traffic Jam Assist

While the BMW 4 Series does come with a few safety features, it's not equipped with any of the driver-assist technologies listed for the 2018 Audi A5.
