2020 BMW 7 Series vs 2020 Audi A8 Comparison in Norwalk, CA

There's no more luxurious, no more exclusive and no more comfortable way to get around than an ultra-premium European full-size sedan. And there's no finer example than the 2020 BMW 7 Series. This vehicle mates the powerful performance of an Ultimate Driving Machine with the very latest technology and the highest in quality. Rivals from other premium brands -- such as the 2020 Audi A8 -- simply fall short. When you want a vehicle that's a joy to spend time in whether behind the wheel, riding shotgun or sitting in the back, step up to the peerless BMW 7 Series at McKenna BMW. We'll show you below how it outperforms the Audi A8.

2020 BMW 7 Series vs. 2020 Audi A8: Size & Design

While legroom and passenger space are virtually identical inside both models, the 2020 BMW 7 Series has more room in the trunk for shopping bags and suitcases. You get 18.2 cubic feet of standard trunk space, so it's a practical commuter or companion for that weekend getaway. Inside the 2020 Audi A8, you only get up to 12.5 cubic feet of trunk volume.

Furthermore, with its longer wheelbase, the 2020 BMW 7 Series rides smoother than the 2020 Audi A8. It also weighs less, allowing the power and performance of the engine to shine through when accelerating up to freeway speeds. And, to our eyes, the 7 Series has a more premium look thanks to the iconic BMW kidney grill up front and stylish chrome side blades running along the doors. The Audi A8 is just too understated to catch the eyes of onlookers quite like the 2020 BMW 7 Series.


BMW 7 Series Light Carpet

2020 BMW 7 Series vs. 2020 Audi A8: Comfort & Luxury

The list of standard equipment you'll find on both of these vehicles is vast. They both come with luxurious items like soft-closing doors, genuine leather upholstery, four-zone automatic climate control, heated seats, power privacy shades and a whole lot more as standard equipment. But the 2020 BMW 7 Series goes even further. For example, where the 2020 Audi A8 features only standard heated front seats, the 2020 BMW 7 Series also provides standard heated arm rests and a heated steering wheel -- features that'll cost even more as options on the Audi sedan. The 7 Series also provides a unique LED Light Carpet feature, which illuminates the areas beneath the doors for safe and secure entry and egress.

2020 BMW 7 Series vs. 2020 Audi A8: Performance

At the entry-level, the 2020 BMW 7 Series makes the same amount of horsepower as the 2020 Audi A8 -- but remember how we said the BMW was lighter? That translates to a faster manufacturer reported 0-60 MPH time from the BMW 7 Series. In fact, when you add xDrive all-wheel drive, the 2020 BMW 740i can dash from 0-60 MPH in less than five seconds! Even with AWD it'll take the Audi A8 5.6 seconds to do the same. What's more, you can upgrade to the 2020 BMW 750i xDrive with a whopping 523 horsepower -- a figure none of the 2020 Audi A8 configurations can match. When you want an ultra-premium luxury car that can hold its own against sports cars and performance sedans on the highway, there's a reason it's BMW vehicles that are called the Ultimate Driving Machines.


BMW 7 Series Interior

2020 BMW 7 Series vs. 2020 Audi A8: Technology

A big, modern full-size sedan isn't the easiest vehicle on Earth to park -- especially the 2020 Audi A8, which comes standard only with a typical backup camera and parking sensors. Instead, every 2020 BMW 7 Series features Surround View Cameras with 3-D view and Active Park Distance Control. You'll get a virtual bird's eye view of your vehicle and its surroundings right in the dashboard, so you can avoid obstacles with ease.

Furthermore, you don't even have to be in the 2020 BMW 7 Series to get it in and out of parking spaces! Got a cramped garage or not enough room to exit comfortably in that tight parking space? Available Remote Control Parking allows the BMW 7 Series to pull itself into and out of parking spaces, all while watching for pedestrians and braking as necessary, with a simple touch of a keyfob button. Stand outside your BMW 7 Series and watch it perfectly park itself, then watch it do the reverse when you return. No more worry about door dings and squeezing past a barely-open door. Remote control self-parking isn't available at all on the 2020 Audi A8.
