2018 BMW 4 Series vs 2018 Audi A5

Serving Atlanta

The 2018 BMW 4 Series and the Audi A5 are both luxury sports cars. Each has a sexy exterior and serious power under the hood with the 4 series being a crowd favorite. Why is the BMW 4 Series so desirable? Let's see how it stacks up against the Audi A5.


Under the hood, the Audi and BMW are both packing heat. BMW offers a 248 HP, 2L, inline 4 engine and a 320 HP, dynamic turbocharged engine. Audi offers one option; a 252 HP, 2.0T, inline 4 engine. In time trials, the BMW reaches 100 MPH almost a second faster than the Audi thanks to its sporty design and mechanics.

Cargo Space

If a big interior and lots of cargo space is on your luxury car "must-have" list, you'll be impressed with the BMW 4 Series. The sports car has the largest back seat on the market when compared to others like it, a large trunk, and handy cargo bins for easy organization are already built-in to better use the trunk. In comparison, the Audi has very small cargo space and a normal-sized back seat.


With power and speed, you have to consider a sports cars' drivetrain. BMW offers the 4 series with rear or all-wheel drive. Audi offers the A5 with all-wheel drive. No matter how you dissect it, all wheel drive is awesome. Both the 4 series and A5 offers this. But, as any serious sports car enthusiast will tell you, a rear wheel drive option is a fantastic option. While both vehicles are fierce on their own, the 4 series stands out because of its rear-wheel drive option.
