2020 Audi A5 vs. Its Competition

2020 Audi A5
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

German rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz don’t match the breadth of the small Audi range, though they come close.

The BMW 4-Series is up for a remake, which will likely look and feel like a more stylish version of the A4.

Mercedes-Benz doesn’t offer a hatchback version of its C-Class, but the coupes and convertibles deliver S-Class style at a reasonable price.

From Japan, the Lexus RC and Infiniti Q60 provide robust performance, though they’re limited to two-door hardtop configurations only.

We’ve tossed Volvo’s stylish S60 in here since it places more of an emphasis on style than most of its rivals, and it can be had in V60 wagon form.
