2019 BMW 4-Series vs. 2019 Audi A5


If there were to be a slicker coupé version of the 3-Series, the 2019 BMW 4-Series would be it! Despite being more compact to achieve this slicker look, the practicality and performance of the car has not been compromised. On the other hand, the 2019 Audi A5 comes in 2 versions – Sportback and the Coupé. For a better comparison, we would be comparing the coupé versions of both car models.

Design & Style

The 2019 BMW 4-Series has BMW’s signature driver-focused dashboard, providing comfortable reach to the controls. There are multiple adjustments for the steering wheel and seats, allowing you to have a much more comfortable ride. It is a great option for family-conscious buyers as there is quite a lot of space in the rear seats and in the trunk. The materials used in the interior are premium and most of the components are well-put together.

Audi has always been known to provide excellent interiors, the 2019 Audi A5 is no exception! With the user-friendly layout of the dashboard and with the use of nappa leather on most of the interior, the interior is a truly luxurious car. There are also multiple adjustments for the steering wheel and seats, allowing for a more comfortable ride. These comfortable seats offer adjustable lumbar adjustments and upper-back support as well. The seats on the car are spacious and provides sufficient space.

Technology & Safety

All 4 series models get satellite navigation, radio, Bluetooth and a USB port. The iDrive infotainment system is excellent and is projected on a 6.5-inch color screen. In addition to the mandatory safety features in most cars, the 4-Series has a wide range of hi-tech safety systems in place. Active cruise control, reverse camera, lane-departure warning and speed-limit display are some examples of the additional safety features. The 4-Series has also done marvelously well in crash test ratings.

The 2019 Audi A5 comes with the MMI infotainment system and is projected on a 7-inch screen that’s mounted on the center of the dashboard. Audi’s virtual cockpit is a 12.3-inch LCD display that presents navigation and media information along with the cars gauges. However, there are additional fees when having this installed. The MMI interface is easy to use and offers many services such as Apple Carplay, Audi Connect Prime. Electronic Stability Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring System and Audi Advanced key are some of the safety features in place.


With a four-cylinder, turbocharged engine, the 2019 Audi A5 reaches a maximum output of 252 horsepower. The 2019 BMW 4-Series has a 4-cylinder, 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that produces a maximum output of 248 horsepower. Despite having similar performing engines, the 4-Series have a wider range of engines to choose from to fit your needs and preferences. If you want to get a better-performing engine, the 435d xDrive model of the 4-Series has an engine that performs at a maximum of 308 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Audi A5 is an excellent car and offers many new features and design improvements from its predecessors. However, the car pales in comparison to the 2019 BMW 4-Series in many categories – better dashboard, better performing engine and more customizations. The 2019 BMW 4-Series is just that much better.
