Pricewatch: BMW 330d Coupe v Audi A5 3.0 TDI

THESE are two of the most attractive corporate cars money can buy: BMW’s gorgeous 3 Series Coupe with its fantastic diesel motor up against new competition in the form of Audi’s striking new A5.

Such is Audi’s recent success in the corporate arena that the firm’s cars are starting to get stronger RV predictions. BMW has always excelled in executive coupes thanks to an unsurpassed image, but it looks like the A5 will give it a run for its money. Envy the executive having to pick between these two brilliant cars.
