2019 BMW 750i xDrive vs. 2018 Audi A8 Quattro


Two luxury vehicles showcase brilliant German engineering and attention to detail above any others: the 2019 BMW 750i xDrive and 2018 Audi A8 sport. Both are packed with luxury features and ultra-capable drivetrains, but you'll need to choose just one. See the side-by-side comparison from Edmonton BMW, here.
Both vehicles feature incredible performance, but there's no debate that the BMW 750i xDrive leads the pack. Learn how these two sedans stack up below:
2109 BMW 750i xDrive 2018 Audi A8 Sport Quattro
Engine Size (L) 4.3 4.0
Torque (ft-lbs) 480 444
0-100 km/h (seconds) 4.4 4.6
All-Wheel Drive System xDrive Quattro
Fuel Economy - city (L/100 km) 13.9 14.7
Fuel Economy - highway (L/100 km) 9.1 9.0

When it comes to city driving, torque is what matters. Whether you're pushing the limits of your vehicle, or reacting to road hazards, the BMW 750i's 480 lb-ft of torque leaves nothing left desired. Compared to the Audi A8's paltry 444 lb-ft of torque, it's no wonder BMW accredited for engineering excellence. With such power, it's also nothing short of impressive that the BMW 750i maintains a better city fuel economy at 13.9 L/100 km to the Audi A8's 14.7L/100 km.

Future owners must also choose between two all-wheel drive systems: the BMW X-Drive and Audi Quattro. There's no doubt that the Quattro system provides valuable traction in slippery conditions. However, the BMW xDrive wasn't just made for performance, it was also made for experience. WIth a 40:60 power split, xDrive creates the control of all-wheel drive with the powerful feel of rear-wheel drive. An electronically monitored clutch that monitors traction every 0.1 seconds to ensure there's never a moment where a BMW's traction-loss goes unaddressed. With a bigger engine, better drive system, and faster acceleration, there seems to be only one choice: the BMW 750xi.
