Comparison: BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe vs Audi S5 Sportback

QuattroDaily is bringing you a direct photo comparison of the Audi S5 Sportback against the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. The model of choice is the BMW 435i Gran Coupe with M Sport Package which goes against the equally sporty and elegant S5 Sportback. A fair comparison would have been between an M Performance Automobile 4 Series Gran Coupe and the S5, but BMW is not currently offering that variant.

Audi’s four-door coupe has been available since 2009 and it is now getting a worthy opponent. Under the hood of the Audi S5 lays a V6 supercharged engine which distributes 333 hp to all four wheels.


Dimensions of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe and the Audi A5 Sportback are just a few centimeters apart, despite a nearly identical wheelbase. The Audi A5 Sportback is almost three millimeters wider and two millimeters higher than the 4 Series Gran Coupe.

With an EU-weight of 1,650 kg, the BMW 435i Gran Coupe (rear-wheel drive and manual transmission) is a full 170 kg below the weight of the all-wheel drive and automatic Audi S5 Sportback. The upcoming BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe xDrive will add around 70 kg and another 10 kg from the eight-speed automatic.
