2020 Audi A5 vs. 2020 BMW 430i Gran Coupe: Design

The Audi A5 Sportback and the BMW 430i Gran Coupe both differ from the traditional sedan style. Their sloped, coupe-inspired roof gives them a sporty air, while the hatchback-style design provides superior rear cargo space. But the Audi A5 backs up its style with features that are sure to impress. The headlights, for example, come with automatic high beam assist to make sure your drive is illuminated without blinding others. That feature is an available upgrade only on the BMW 430i Gran Coupe. And the BMW doesn't even offer dynamic turn indicators, which are also standard on the Audi A5! What's more, a power tailgate is standard on the Audi A5, but an available upgrade only if you choose the BMW 430i Gran Coupe. The dedication towards excellence in design continues to the interior, where you'll find that every 2020 Audi A5 is upholstered with genuine leather. Leatherette upholstery is the standard if you choose the base 2020 BMW 430i Gran Coupe.

2020 Audi A5 vs. 2020 BMW 430i Gran Coupe: Interior Features

Leather upholstery is just the beginning of the interior refinement you'll get in the 2020 Audi A5. Heated front seats and power-adjustable lumbar support are standard if you choose the 2020 Audi A5. To get the same features in the BMW 430i Gran Coupe, you'll have to pay extra to upgrade. What's more, the BMW doesn't even offer three-zone automatic climate control, which is a standard feature in the 2020 Audi A5. And when it comes to connectivity, Audi once again pulls into the lead. While both cars come with Apple CarPlay®, only the Audi A5 offers connectivity through Android Auto™. While those with iPhones will be able to easily connect in either vehicle, Android users are out of luck in the BMW. For extra comfort, the 2020 Audi A5 offers a few available features you won't be able to find in any BMW 430i Gran Coupe. Ventilated front seats can help keep you cool on hot summer days, while traffic sign recognition makes it easy to keep track of the current speed limit. These features aren't available at all on the 2020 BMW 4 Series.

2020 Audi A5 vs. 2020 BMW 430i Gran Coupe: Performance

These two cars make identical horsepower: 248. But the Audi has a trick up its sleeve. Its engine generates more torque than the engine in the BMW 430i Gran Coupe, which means that acceleration will feel quicker. Of course, power is only the beginning of what you'll want to consider when you look at performance. The Audi A5 also comes standard with the exceptional traction and control that comes from quattro® all-wheel drive. While AWD is an available upgrade on the BMW 430i, you'll have to pay more for it.

Another notable difference in performance is the transmission. The 2020 BMW 430i Gran Coupe comes with a regular 8-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth shifting. Still, the Audi A5 does even better. It comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that allows for nearly instant gear shifts, providing powerful and virtually uninterrupted acceleration.
