A top infotainment system needs to offer so much more than a great satellite navigation setup. Sharp graphics, a user-friendly interface and clever input methods are all arguably as important to many car buyers as a strong engine or a smooth ride.

Mercedes, BMW and Audi produce three of the best on the market at the moment, but just how good are they? So whether you're a gadget fan, an audiophile, or just appreciate a good sat nav, check out this infotainment battle which settles once and for all which car maker produces the best system!

      I like that BMW has no silver trim around its display. I also like that the BMW contours its screen a bit to flow with the interior design. Benz's instrument cluster looks awful with a rectangle screen inside a rectangle screen. At least BMW hides the edges of the screen with three-dimensional instrument cluster borders.

      Any of these are terrible if iDrive is considered the benchmark - I never bother with setting it up eg for navigation - just using my phone which needs a comfortable place somewhere on the dashboard. Any modern phone OS is running circles around these offerings....

      Audi rocks, so far ahead of the rest. I have a BMW with HUD and I drive 6, still miss Audi 😔

      picking new car I wish someone made BMW-ish drivetrain with Audi-ish interior/infotainment features (so clean and easy to use compared to the other two brands!) and MB-ish comfort (hate their interiors, it's like visiting castle of some russian style-lacking fatass mafia member and his moustache-equipped wife).

      But BMW's radio (FM, Satellite, Bluetooth) is really trash. It sucks. I know because i have a mercedes E400, audi q7 and x5. The x5 radio really sucks. I upgraded the fm antenna and everything else

      I’ve used COMAND and MMI but never iDrive, but is it weird that just by looking at it and it’s functions, I prefer iDrive over both? It just seems more logical and the graphics are fantastic.

      BMW'S idrive looks dated compared to Audi's Google Earth interface. What are you smoking? Biased much?

      Not really a fair test here is it? In most Audi cars you can get all them kits as in the Q5, whereas in most BMW and Mercedes you can’t, well not until recently.. as in 2018. Audi been doing the virtual cockpit since about 2-3 years ago.
