Q. BMW 7 series is better or Audi A8
  • First of all, you cant compare these two vehicle because they are the best in their respective space. Then If you need a comparison, in my experience with both of the cars in my garage. i prefer audi a8 to get driven by mydriver. in case of 740 Li and 745 Li same like a8 i prefer to seated on the rear seat and have nice rest and feel the luxury. a8 is designed for maximum comfort and luxury on the rear seat passengers.. and yes you can compare a8 to entry level 7 series but in case of M760Li Ultimate 7 series which is one of the most luxurious car in the world ,the rear seats of m760 is just like heaven on four wheels, but i personally like to drive it by myself because m series is a performance vehicle and when it comes to m760 Li then its a beast with all the luxury inside. M760Li is a combination of M series (performance sedans like m3,m4 etc) and 7 series. so if you can afford an m760Li the offcourse get it in your garage. but if you are looking for a car in the price around 2.07cr showroom price in india the conside a8 as primary option because audi is cheaper than 740 Li, 730ld and 745le and more luxurious than these bmws.
