2018 BMW 3 Series vs 2018 Audi A5 in Schererville, IN

If you’re having trouble deciding which entry-luxury car to choose, we at BMW of Schererville can help with the decision-making process. While there are many good choices out there, only the 2018 BMW 3 Series checks off everything on your list. In order to prove it to you, we have pitted it against a fierce competitor; the 2018 Audi A5. You’ll quickly see how easily the 3 Series overtakes the A5 in almost every category. Stop by during our convenient business hours to try out the 3 Series for yourself!

It seems like we are constantly in a rush, and sometimes important reminders, like service appointments, fall by the wayside. Fortunately, you won’t have to worry anymore in the BMW 3 Series, thanks to the standard ConnectedDrive Services. These are an array of innovations that keep track of your vehicle’s condition on the go. Things like oil levels, tire pressure, fuel economy, engine condition, and so much more, are all monitored. Alerts are then sent directly to your preferred BMW dealer, who will then give you a call to set up an appointment. This connects your vehicle, your dealer, and your mobile phone into one, easy-to-use bundle. You won’t find the same convenience in the Audi A5, since nothing comparable comes equipped on any of its trim levels.

The next category that we will compare is the interior of each of these entry-luxury cars. Even though the A5 does come standard with leather-appointed seats, they can still easily accumulate messes and become stained. Your seats will be protected in the BMW 3 Series, since it comes standard with SensaTec upholstery. This material is both stain and spill-resistant, so the fabric will last you a long time! Whether you’re going out to AMC Showplace Schererville 16 to catch a flick, or on a longer drive down Indianapolis Blvd, you’ll want plenty of room for you and your passengers. You will definitely find it in the 3 Series, as it comes with 42 inches of legroom in the front and 35.1 inches of legroom in the rear. The Audi A5 may feel a little cramped, since it only manages to provide 41.3 and 32.7 inches of legroom in the front and back, respectively.

Once again, you may feel limited in the A5 when it comes to performance. Your only option is a standard 2.0L TSFI® engine that manages 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. This does indeed outdo the 3 Series’ standard 2.0L 4-cylinder powertrain, which only manages to generate 180 horsepower and 200 lb.-ft. of torque. That is where its superiority stops, however. The 3 Series has four other engines for you to choose from, plus its base model still provides you with a healthy fuel economy of 35 MPG hwy1. The Audi A5 only manages to give you a 33 MPG hwy2 fuel rating, which means more time and money spent at the pump instead of on the road.

It is pretty clear that the BMW 3 Series comes out on top in this 2018 BMW 3 Series vs 2018 Audi A5 in Schererville, IN, comparison. To see it for yourself, visit us at BMW of Schererville as soon as today!

I can’t stress how great this dealership was during my most recent visit. From my initial call to set the appointment to dropping off the loaner the process was seamless. Nick, (my consultant) was absolutely wonderful, he kept me updated throughout the entire process, and worked diligently with my warranty company to get my claim approved. Ultimate driving machine, and an awesome team to service them! Thanks Nick and team!!
