The Never-Ending Debate: Audi vs. BMW vs. Mercedes-Benz

Last updated 6 years ago

BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi defined the ultimate luxury car market, and in doing so set themselves apart in a league all of their own.  These three German giants have led the way of the luxury car market for some time now.

Yet the question remains: Which car maker is superior? Is there really a right answer?

Each brand boasts exceptional engineering, iconic distinctive design, superior craftsmanship, and intuitive ground breaking technology.  They also have very unique characteristics that have led in some cases to an almost cult like following.  Like loyal sports fans of their beloved teams, the same passion and pride can come from owners of these superior vehicles.  Like the players of a team, each brand’s models are chosen for their precise roles in order to create a powerful and exclusive starting line-up. 



Well-known for lightweight aluminum bodies and dual clutch transmissions, Audi’s engineering rivals the best in the world.  With the launch of a whole new line-up and increased production, Audi reputation has once again exceeded itself.  The introduction of the LED running lights and large aggressive grills to its models, has immediately distinguished AUDI’s on the road.  This modern design has become distinctively Audi and has led to the brands increased popularity.  Audi’s new bold design implementation has been one of the driving forces behind sales increasing tenfold in the 21st Century.  Athans Motors has an exceptional selection of Audi’s to choose from.

 Audi’s tag line, “Truth in Engineering” represents the notion that Audi’s superior design, history and engineering provide the most authentic, truthful driving experience in the luxury segment.




In terms of tradition, this luxury car manufacturer may take the cake.  BMW has built its fine reputation on daring design, masterful engineering, and adaptive technology. BMW vehicles are also well-known for quality manual transmissions, giving you total control of your car.  This can be seen by the enormous following of BMW’s prized possession, the M3.  Athans Motors carries a vast array of BMW’s including their most prized possession the BMW M3.

The most seasoned car manufacturer of the three, Mercedes Benz is most well-known for its dependable, high-end automobiles.  Mercedes are consistently considered a top ten choice in annual J.D. Power Surveys for car quality.  Mercedes-Benz vehicles guarantee longevity, precision engineering, and terrific handling in the city or on the highway.  Athans Motors has a large collection of Mercedes to choose from, many with the Sporty AMG Package.
