Design & Style

The 2018 Audi S5 Sportback and the 2018 BMW 44i Gran Coupe go head to head in terms of their exterior appearance.

These aspects joined together will give you a better assessment of whether you are getting the value for your money or not. The roof pillars of the BMW 440i render safety issues for the luxury car because it does not provide much rearview visibility to the driver. The iDrive system is also very complicated even when it comes with a simple screen.

Looking into these features in the Audi S5 Sportback, you will find out that it has been given only the most essential controls in its MMI infotainment system. Controls are placed logically to ease distraction on the part of the driver. Likewise, its roof pillars may be thick but does not obstruct the driver's outdoor view.


The 2017 BMW 440i Gran Coupe has a 6-cylinder, 3.0-liter engine which can produce a maximum of 330lb-ft of torque and 320 horsepower. Meanwhile, the Audi S5 is gifted with a V-6, 3.0-liter engine too which can produce up to 369lb-ft of torque and 354 horsepower.
