The 3 great competitive luxury car makers have different performance and luxury experience. But the questions that lefts behind is ‘which to choose’, Mercedes vs BMW vs Audi?
Among many of the luxury cars such as Cadillac, Jaguar, Range Rover, Maserati, etc. Most of the majority prefers Mercedes, Bmw or Audi. The reason behind this is quite sharp and deep. Moreover, Mercedes provides an ultra luxury experience. Whereas, BMW and Audi gives an ultra performance.
Audi is famous for developing its e-tron versions.
It is one of the leading companies developing electric cars and plug-in hybrids, with even the aforementioned Q7 and R8 – probably the least likely candidates for electrification – having e-tron versions in development. Know more.
Mercedes is famous for Vision EQ Silver Arrow
Silver Arrows Automobiles Ltd are named after the famous factory race teams who totally dominated motorsport in the immediate pre-war and post war years. So called because they raced in polished aluminium to save weight, they were driven by the likes of Stirling Moss and Juan Manuel Fangio to many Grand Prix victories. Know more.
BMW is famous for developing its Vision M Next
The BMW Vision M Next is made for those who don’t want to give up driving in future. This is the only drive-able car by BMW which would just give you a A+ feel when you drive up this beast on roads. Moreover, the concept has been introduced and has added up many new and cool features that includes-
- 22 inch rims (rear)
- 21 inch rims(front)
Now what I’ve liked the most in this car is the steering. No matter what, the steering is just too futuristic. The dashboard of this car is just like the dashboard from the car of the ‘Men in Black’. I don’t have words to describe the interior of the Vision M Next.
Even cooler part of this car is that is doesn’t have door handles. You can open the doors by just clicking on a touchscreen sensor; which is just right behind the door’s window. Once you click that button, you can lift up the doors of the car just like the BMW i8. It’s pretty awesome. Know more.
Best Quality Car; Mercedes vs BMW vs Audi
The 3 brands have become more homogenous as they’ve grown their product lineups, and that’s not a good thing. Each has its own set of unique qualities designed to attract individual luxury customers.
Moreover, Audi was all about all-wheel drive. Now BMW and Mercedes offer all-wheel drive on most models, which is a necessity for rear-wheel-drive luxury cars sold in northern states. BMW led in driving dynamics. That’s no longer the case. The latest BMWs aren’t bad cars, but the brand can’t legitimately claim to be “The Ultimate Driving Machine” for each segment it’s in. Mercedes offered a certain level of quality and workmanship not found in the other German luxury automobiles.
The gap has substantially narrowed and in some cases, Mercedes has lost its advantage. Though I’ would give the BMW Vision M Next and the Mercedes AMG a slight dynamic edge to the Audi e-tron, this is splitting hairs. They are now very similar, especially to the average buyer. Just run the numbers between all three on their configurators and pick the cheapest, which is a disappointing way to make a choice in the luxury segments. Know more by AutomobileMag.
The 3 automakers used to build products that made sense to different buyers. Now, each brand is trying to have enough model breadth to please any luxury buyer, and they depend on marketing to differentiate their brands. That may be good for short- and medium-term sales, but what about the long run?
