Looking for your next new car or SUV? There are lots of opportunities near Burlington, South Burlington, and Essex Junction. In this Audi vs. Toyota brand comparison, we want to show you how two of the top brands in safety, technology, and new-car warranties match up.

In this battle of the brands, you can decide whether your next vehicle should be an Audi or Toyota. Both bring lots to the table, so you'll have a tough choice to make! Contact our team at Audi South Burlington to learn more.

Safety: Audi pre sense® vs Toyota Safety Sense™  

When it comes to safety features, the Audi and Toyota brands are well known for comprehensive safety suites. Their packages even share similar names! Whether it's Audi pre sense® or Toyota Safety Sense™ P, you can expect a strong baseline for intelligent safety technology.

The most basic version of the Audi suite is known as pre sense® city. You'll find it standard on every Audi model, much the same as how Toyota Safety Sense™ P is standard across the Toyota lineup. Both offer a feature that can monitor the roads ahead, warn you of impending collisions, and help you brake.

However, the Audi suite offers available features that go far beyond the Toyota suite. From night vision assist (via infrared camera) to driver attention assist, many Audi cars go above and beyond in safety.

Top-Tier Technology Features

As you cruise through town, you'll want to do it from a cabin that feels like home. That means the latest in comfort and connectivity should be included, and Audi and Toyota do well on this front. Infotainment, climate control, and power seats can be had from both brands.

Audi MMI® and Toyota Entune™ Audio grant easy access to your multimedia features. Both let you hook up a smartphone and use apps on the go. You can find maps and directions to your destination, too, as a navigation system is offered by both.

However, as a luxury brand, Audi takes the win in key respects. From the MMI® all-in-touch handwriting recognition to an Audi virtual cockpit, it takes connectivity to the next level!

New Vehicle Limited Warranty

As you shop cars, you'll want to take new vehicle warranties into account. Every brand offers them, and they're a way to hedge against uncertainty and have fewer unexpected repairs during the initial years of ownership.

How long will that break-in period last, though? With Toyota, you'll get a Basic Coverage Warranty with coverage for 36 months or 36,000 miles-whichever comes first. While that is a competitive offer, Audi goes further with its New Vehicle Limited Warranty: four years or 50,000 miles.

Both plans include 24-hour roadside assistance-a nice perk, if you find yourself with car trouble on the side of the road. However, the Audi plan offers four years of it, while you'll only get two years when you choose a new Toyota.

Audi vs Toyota: And the Winner Is…

Burlington, Essex Junction, and South Burlington shoppers have lots of great brands to choose from. The Audi and Toyota brands are known and respected worldwide for their commitment to safety, reliability, and performance. As a luxury brand, though, Audi edges out the competition in crucial ways.
