Audi A8 Interior Quality

Interior Features: 2019 Audi A8 vs. 2019 BMW 740i

When the rumble of the engine isn't enough to entertain you, both these cars come standard with a premium audio system and powerful amplifiers. However, the 2019 Audi A8 features a more powerful standard audio system. With 16 standard speakers and 600 watts of amplification, the 2019 BMW 740i can't compete with the 2019 Audi A8. The all-new Audi A8 features 17 speakers and 730 watts of sonic power for superior volume and clarity.

With 18-way adjusting power front seats as standard, the 2019 Audi A8 lets you refine your ideal seating position more precisely than the BMW 740i. The 2019 BMW 740i comes standard only with 14-way adjusting seats.


Audi A8 Dynamic Turn Signals

Design & Technology: 2019 Audi A8 vs. 2019 BMW 740i

The 2019 BMW 740i features a touchscreen infotainment system similar to that of the 2019 Audi A8, but you can't get Android Auto™ in the BMW sedan. It's only available with Apple CarPlay™, so non-iPhone users will be out of luck. By contrast, every 2019 Audi A8 comes standard with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ so you can connect your compatible smartphone for hands-free communication.

On the exterior, the 2019 Audi A8 comes standard with 19" alloy wheels. They're bigger and wider than what you get on the 2019 BMW 740i for improved grip and a more powerful presence. Best of all, the all-new 2019 Audi A8 features full LED exterior lighting with available dynamic tail lights. The turn signals and brake lights progressively animate when indicating a turn or when locking and unlocking the vehicle. That's an element of flash and style that you just don't get from the 2019 BMW 7-Series sedan.

Audi A8 All-Wheel Drive

Performance & Drive: 2019 Audi A8 vs. 2019 BMW 740i

The 2019 Audi A8 makes a bit more horsepower and a whole lot more torque compared to the 2019 BMW 740i! That's thanks in part to the 48-volt mild hybrid system that comes standard on the all-new Audi A8. While a hybrid edition of the 2019 BMW 7-Series is available, the entry-level model is purely gasoline-powered.

The powerful turbocharged V6 engine that motivates the 2019 Audi A8 makes a total of 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque combined with the hybrid system -- that's 15 more horsepower and 39 lb-ft of torque more than you get from the 2019 BMW 740i!

Finally, while all-wheel drive is an available upgrade on its Bimmer rival, the 2019 Audi A8 comes totally standard with the legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system. All-wheel drive helps give you the grip you need in wet weather conditions.


Audi A8 Design

Safety: 2019 Audi A8 vs. 2019 BMW 740i

While both of these vehicles come standard with the latest driver assistance features like pre-collision automatic braking and adaptive cruise control, the 2019 Audi A8 offers some available upgrades that you won't find on the BMW 7-Series.

With available traffic sign detection, you won't have to worry about missing a speed limit drop, as the vehicle will keep track of important road signs for you through dashboard alerts. Available night vision assistant uses an infrared camera to detect potential dangers like wildlife and pedestrians from a greater distance at night than the naked eye. You'll have more time to react to unseen hazards at night in the 2019 Audi A8 -- but not the 2019 BMW 740i.
