BMW vs Mercedes vs Audi: All-Electric Innovation

All-electric vehicles are the way of the future. They are environmentally friendly and efficient. BMW has led the way in all-electric innovation. It was the first of these three brands to introduce an electric vehicle when it released the BMW i3 in 2013.

Audi eventually came up with an answer when they released the Audi e-tron, but that wasn't until 2019. BMW had a sizable head start. Mercedes, on the other hand, has yet to join the all-electric trend. The Mercedes-Benz GLC plug-in hybrid is the closest they've come.

The BMW i3 takes environmental protection one step further with its recycled, renewed, and sustainable interior. The eucalyptus wood trim doesn't require any harsh chemicals to bring out its inner beauty. This car is also filled with repurposed plastics. Recycled bottles are woven into the seats and scrap carbon fiber plastic is used in the body construction.

BMW vs Mercedes vs Audi: Automotive Awards

J.D. Power presents awards for quality, dependability, and performance to a few select vehicles that have ranked highest within those categories. In 2019, BMW vehicles received a total of six J.D. Power awards. The BMW 2 Series and the X4 were both given the Quality Award, meaning owners reported the fewest problems within the first 90 days of ownership.

Audi and Mercedes fell short of BMW with only two 2019 J.D. Power awards each. Mercedes managed to bring home one Quality Award, but Audi did not.

If you're looking for a midsize SUV, you'll want to go with the BMW X5. Kelley Blue Book named it the Midsize Luxury SUV Best Buy of 2020 for its engaging ride and refined drivetrains. It beat out plenty of models from the competition, including the Audi Q8 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE.

BMW vs Mercedes vs Audi: Certified Pre-Owned Programs

All three manufacturers give you the chance to get behind the wheel of a dependable pre-owned vehicle thanks to their comprehensive certified pre-owned programs.

Certified pre-owned models from each brand must pass a rigorous inspection to qualify for the program. Vehicles from Mercedes-Benz must also have fewer than 75,000 miles on the odometer. Cars from BMW and Audi, on the other hand, must have fewer than 60,000 miles, so you can rest assured they'll still have plenty of miles left to explore.

BMW, Mercedes, and Audi also protect their certified pre-owned vehicles with a limited warranty. They provide unlimited-mileage coverage for one additional year after the expiration of the new vehicle warranty.
