New BMW 4-series Colorado SpringsNew Audi A5 Colorado Springs

When you're thinking about purchasing a luxury sedan, you're fortunate to have a wealth of quality options in the greater Colorado Springs area. How then, to narrow down the selection to the a manageable few that are worth taking out for a test drive? Allow us to assist by offering a head-to-head comparison between the BMW 4 Series and its Audi competitor. To keep things fair, we chose automatic transmission-equipped base models of each vehicle, so we're pitting the BMW 430i Coupe against the Audi A5 Premium Coupe.

Performance Specs

Both coupes are equipped with 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged direct-injected engines, but the BMW 430i comes with a sporty eight-speed transmission that's smoother than the 7-speed offered by the Audi. The EPA estimates that both vehicles will achieve 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, so fuel efficiency is remarkably alike -- but the BMW 430i does have a slightly larger fuel tank, which will lead to fewer stops at the gas station over time.

Additional Features

Given that the BMW 430i and Audi A5 are luxury automobiles, it only stands to reason that they both offer the state-of-the-art technologies and features you expect of the breed. However, as we mentioned earlier, the BMW 430i does offer standard features that either cost extra or just aren't available on the Audi. These include an onboard hands-free communication system, heated mirrors, power driver's mirror, mirror memory, seat memory, a 12V power outlet, a CD player and an alarm. While none of those may immediately seem like deal breakers, combined they serve to prove that the BMW 430i is the far better value.

Price Points

Not only does the BMW come in at a lower Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price than the Audi, it also offers standard features that either aren't available or are costly options on the Audi. That means your costs can quickly add up if you want your A5 to come with the same bells and whistles that the BMW 430i offers.
