Comparing the 2018 BMW 5 Series with the 2018 Audi A6

At BMW of Peabody, we're BMW dealers who want you to find a new or pre-owned BMW vehicle that will not only get you where you need to go, but engage you every time you drive it. It would be our pleasure to introduce you to our beautiful selection of new BMW models near Burlington, MA, including the cutting-edge 2018 BMW 5 Series, a comfortable, high-tech, and high performing sedan. We'd love to tell you more how it stacks up to its competition.


The 2018 BMW 5 Series


The 2018 BMW 5 Series has more compelling options than ever this year. The base 530i model is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that puts out 248 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Step up to the BMW 540i to get a turbocharged 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine that produces 335 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque. There is also a new 530e iPerformance plug-in hybrid model added to the mix for the model year. The comfortable and well-equipped interior includes standard technology like the iDrive interface with a 10.2-inch touchscreen display, a navigation system, voice controls, BMW Assist emergency telematics, and a 12-speaker sound system with two USB ports. Not only is the cabin spacious and comfortable, but the trunk offers a generous 18.7 cubic feet of space. Ask your local BMW dealer near Andover, MA, for a tour. 


The 2018 Audi A6


The 2018 Audi A6 is another well-appointed luxury sedan that might catch your eye during your search. It comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that puts out 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, and there is also an available V6 engine that produces 340 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque. A hybrid model, however, is not offered. Like the BMW 5 Series, this model also comes with much of the latest technology, including a 10-speaker sound system, an eight-inch electronics interface, and a navigation system. Cargo space falls short of the BMW 5 Series, however, measuring just 14.1 cubic feet.

We think the BMW 5 Series is right choice for savvy drivers like you, thanks to its excellent blend of engine choices, advanced technology, and everyday usability. Experience how nimble and engaging it is at our Massachusetts BMW dealership, located at 221 Andover Street. Come see our Peabody BMW inventory today!
