2019 BMW X4 vs. 2019 Audi Q5


Car buyers are often caught in a dilemma between the 2019 Audi Q5 and the 2019 BMW X4. Both are luxury car models with plenty of standard features to offer, but BMW may have an edge in a few parameters. With the below comparison, we’ll discuss those in details.

Design & Style

The Sportback body style of Audi A5 can seat up to 5, while coupe can only accommodate 4. The front seats are ideal for an extended trip, but the back seats can be a little tight. The headroom is confined by the sloping roofline, while the interior is below average for a vehicle of its class. Although it has a few top-notch materials, there are some cheap plastics as well.

On the other hand, the 2019 BMW X4 is a 5-seater model with ample room across both the rows. Three adults can easily fit at the back, unlike most rivals. For installing child car seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors. The modern cabin looks upscale with some high-grade materials and there’s a luxurious appeal the moment you climb inside.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Audi A5 comes standard with an MMI infotainment system featuring a 7-inch display, without touch-screen option. Rotary controller is used for adjusting settings. You get a handwriting recognition system, navigation and a touch pad in the upgraded version. Apart from the rearview camera, Audi A5 has an Audi Pre Sense Basic, which is a system to sense collision and tighten the seatbelt.

The 2019 BMW X4 comes standard with an iDrive infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, navigation and a 12-speaker audio system. You will find it pretty easy to maneuver the system with controls well within reach of the driver. Standard safety features include adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning and parking sensors.


The 2019 Audi A5 comes standard with a turbo-four engine coupled with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. It produces enough power for daily driving, but may not satisfy spirited drivers. This is where the 2019 BMW X4 is a true masterpiece with its 248-HP turbo-4 engine and optional turbo-six engine as well. It can accelerate quickly off the line, and is highly fuel efficient.

The Bottom Line

There are plenty of reasons to like the 2019 BMW X4, and is not only limited to impressive performance and solid build quality. It is unmatched in terms of practicality and finishes on top of luxury compact car rankings. It makes a great choice if you are looking to consider between the 2019 Audi Q5 and BMW X4.
