Audi A5 vs Mercedes C-Class Coupe vs BMW 4 Series vs Lexus RC | Head2Head

Premium four-seat coupes: striking looks aren’t enough to top this class. Cars such as the Audi A5, the BMW 4 Series, the Lexus RC and the Mercedes C-Class Coupe need to be fun to drive, comfortable and refined, yet remain nearly as practical as the four-door saloons on which they’re based. So which of these handsome two-doors is more than just a pretty face? Find out in our brand new Head2Head video review in 4k!

Mercedes is very small inside, especially driver's leg room is really tight and uncomfortable.

I'm a tad confused by how anyone could think the Mercedes looks the best of these three. To my eyes the rear quarter view is about the only angle from which it doesn't look horribly awkward.

The Lexus just looks like a car built by a grandma who is trying to fit in with some teenagers.

The Audi and BMW to my eyes are by far the two best looking cards of the four.

Don't like Mercedes styling at all. Looks very old and bland compared to the others.

The c class even though inside looks nice, the infotainment monitor material is very Chinese, looks cheap and very plasticky. Thr6 could e done better. The BMW and Audi uses solid glass and expensive monitors unlike Mercedes.

Tbh, they are all garbage, we need to demand more, they keep selling us the same crap with minor design adjustments each year and we still fall for it. At least the Lexus is reliable. Rest is money pits.

The only downside with the new shape A5 is its looks. The A5 has looked beautiful ever since 2007. Just wish we could have a 2016 shape with the new interior

Before watching any review involving BMW/Audi/Merc comparisons you can almost certainly guess that; 

BMW will be the best to drive
Merc will have the best interior
Audi will have the best exterior

Showed us the rear seats of the coupes, but not under the hood. Why do the rear seats matter in a coup?!

I don't understand why this is so focused on diesel engines, I don't understand why anyone would want a diesel coupe now that the company car perks have gone.
Personally I think the 440i is the best of the bunch, bmw are the only manufacturer in this test that built a decent performance car in their 'normal' range (excluding M, AMG, RS varients etc).
I actually prefer the C coupe in terms of looks and comfort but their top performing car outside of the AMG range is a 280 bhp hybrid compared to the 320bhp beamer. It feels like a no brainer for anyone who want a quick car without dipping into the 'proper' performance world of AMG & M cars.

Matt is a German car fanboy so the Lexus had a ‘Slim to none’ chance of an unbiased review…
And Slim is out of town.

Heaven is when it has Mercedes' design, Audi's interior quality, BMW's handling, Lexus' reliability, and Jaguar's lightness.

I disliked it because he barely gave any time to the Audi and they got it without the quattro, which I would consider a must
