For the daring drivers of Peabody, Danvers, and Beverly, we have two vehicles you may want on your radar: the Audi RS 5 and BMW M4. They both have a great deal to offer, including powerful engines, stylish interiors, and state-of-the-art technologies.

However, one vehicle may be a better fit for your lifestyle than the other. We'll help you decide in this Audi RS 5 vs. BMW M4 comparison from Ira Audi. Keep reading to see what each vehicle has to offer, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Dynamic Performances in the RS 5 vs M4

If you love sitting behind the wheel and experiencing power you can hear and feel, then you'll appreciate the performances of both the 2019 Audi RS 5 and 2019 BMW M4.

The RS 5 comes with a 2.9L 6-cylinder engine that churns out 444 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. Plus, the vehicle goes from 0-60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds. Combine that with an 8-speed automatic transmission mated to the engine, and you're looking at a vehicle that shifts smoothly and accelerates at an impressively fast rate.

The M4 doesn't fare as well with its power ratings. This vehicle comes with a 3.0L M TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder, but it only produces 425 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. Plus, the engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and goes from 0-60 MPH in 4.1 seconds.

Furthermore, the Audi comes standard in quattro® all-wheel drive (AWD). This system can intuitively send power to where it's needed, giving you optimum grip on slick surfaces.

Unfortunately, the BMW model doesn't offer an AWD system.

Interior Design & Amenities

With the 2019 RS 5 and 2019 M4 being luxury models, you get to enjoy riding around in elegant, high-quality cabins.

Each vehicle has a solid build of quality and premium materials. Whether it's Nappa leather seats in the Audi or a leather-wrapped M sport steering wheel in the BMW, these vehicles are for people who appreciate the finer things in life.

Additionally, both models offer lots of creature comforts to help make your drives more enjoyable. This includes standard heated front seats, so you can remain cozy on even the coldest nights.

The RS 5 goes a step further by coming standard with 12-way power front seats with 4-way power lumbar adjustment. Not only can you find your ideal seating position quickly, but the standard 3-zone automatic climate control system will ensure that everyone finds their idyllic comfort levels.

Unfortunately, you won't find either of these features inside the M4.

2019 RS 5 vs 2019 M4: Technologies

What you'll find inside these luxury models, though, are high-tech features to help keep you connected and entertained throughout your commutes.

For example, the Audi RS 5 comes standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. With these features,  you can access your favorite mobile apps right on the vehicle's 7-inch MMI® center infotainment display screen.

In comparison, the BMW M4 only comes with Apple CarPlay™. Plus, it's only available as a 1-year trial, unlike it being a permanent fixture inside the Audi.

The RS 5 also comes standard with an MMI® Navigation plus system, along with MMI® touch with handwriting-recognition technology. You can simply "write" an address on the center control pad and have it come up in no time. Plus, when paired with Audi connect®, you can get Google Earth™ that'll display 3D satellite imagery for your routes.

The M4 has an advanced navigation system as well. However, it doesn't come with anything like MMI® touch or Audi connect®.

Which Luxury Sports Coupe Is Right for You?

While both models are certainly impressive, it's the 2019 Audi RS 5 that offers more power and features for drivers like you in Peabody, Danvers, and Beverly.
