2020 BMW M4 vs. 2019 Audi S5

 

Heady performance numbers, brilliant twin turbo six cylinder engines and an interior that redefines elegance, the 2020 BMW M4 is in a nutshell, perfect. It has the pedigree as well as stats to back it up as the best in the M4 family. Available as a convertible or coupe, the M4 as it is aptly referred to, is zestier than its mediate M4 siblings .You’ll most likely love its cornering grip, stopping, speed, safety and of course, engine performance.

Then there is the 2019 Audi S5, once thought as the 2020 M4’s worthy competitor. Indeed it is. You’ll quickly notice its latent downsides though especially with performance, aesthetics, safety and overall performance.

Design & Style

2020 BMW M4 comes in three two tone interior options – Sakhir orange, Sonoma Beige and Silverstone.  You’ll mostly likely love its sports seats designed to be both supportive and comfortable. It gets even better with the driving position which is perfect for spirited driving. Space is also a plus with the rear seats comfortably fitting two adults. Trunk space on the other hand fits four carry on suitcases without a problem.  The interior is simply pieced with laser tight precision with each detail coming out as deliberately put in place for the driver’s and his or her passengers comfort and convenience.

The 2019 Audi S5 interior is spiced up by soft to the touch and expensive looking materials. It also boasts of a simple yet aesthetically appealing design. The driver’s as well as the front passenger seats are treated to cozy and roomy power adjustable seats. That’s pretty much where the perks end as far as design and style is concerned. Rear seat riders are left with what can easily be described as the bare minimum of acceptable space.

Technology & Safety

An iDrive infotainment software supported by an 8.8 inch touchscreen makes it easy for anyone to fall in love with the 2020 BMW M4. The infotainment system can also be operated through buttons on the steering, through voice commands or a rotary controller on the center console. Other key technological features include Wi-Fi hotspot as well as wireless phone charging.  As far as safety is concerned, 2020 BMW M4 comes complete with a 360 degree camera system and self-parking assist. The main safety highlights though are in the M4’s standard lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, automated emergency braking and forward collision alert.

2019 Audi S5 boasts of a 7.0 inch touchscreen in a bid to match the M4’s 8.8 inch iDrive infotainment system.  It also boasts of a 10 speaker audio system which is somewhat inferior to M4’s 16 speaker audio system. Other features include USB ports and a satellite radio. Safetywise, A5 boasts of an adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking.

Performance

2020 BMW M4 is simply a beast. Power comes from a strong 425 hp twin turbo inline six, complete with a 6 speed manual system. You can also opt for a 6 speed dual clutch automatic transmission.  Take all these into account and it doesn’t come as a surprise how this rear drive machine clinches the 60mph mark in just 3 seconds.

2019 Audi S5, comes with a 349 hp turbocharged V-6 engine as well as an 8 speed automatic transmission. It clinches the 60 mph mark in 4 seconds.  These two stats alone mean 2020 BMW is way ahead.  2019 Audi S5 agility is also somewhat inferior to the M4.

Bottom Line

The 2020 BMW M4 doesn’t struggle to impress. It just does. It ticks off all the key factors a car enthusiast would be keen on from safety and speed all the way to engine performance, fuel efficiency and even comfort. It is also aesthetically appealing just as it is elegant.
