At this level on the audi, you will not get Start-Stop, color flat display and the maintenance included for 4 years. The maintenance alone is probably worth it.

It does not help me choose between the bmw and the audi...
But the allroad is also more expensive than the Q5 comparably equipped so I think the overall point here is the same... 328xi (and allroad) is very expensive for what it is. For the same price as an allroad, you can drive home in a Q5 3.0T; or save $3,000 with a Q5 2.0T.

It appears that both BMW and Audi have decided to charge a massive wagon premium relative to the SUVs
