3 Series vs A4 Performance

Both the 2020 BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4 are known for their agility, powerful engines, and dynamic performance. Driving should be exciting every day, and these cars provide that thrill. There’s only one that delivers the power when you need it most, however.

Featuring a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the entry-level version of the 3 Series feels anything but entry-level. This engine that’s mated to an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission also comes with different shift modes. It’s able to produce 255 horsepower and 294 lb-ft of torque.

If you’re driving the Audi A4, you’ll constantly feel like you’re playing catchup. A 2.0L turbocharged engine—the standard offering in the A4—offers just 188 horsepower in the front-wheel drive models. Even if you do choose the model with all-wheel drive, its 248 horsepower still doesn’t match up to the BMW 3 Series.

BMW 3 Series vs Audi A4 Interior

BMW 3 Series InteriorComfort and convenience features ensure a pleasant, smooth trip every time you take the wheel. You want to be inside a car that’s comfortable, welcoming, and offers unique interior amenities you’ll love. Both the 3 Series and the A4 come with automatic 3-zone climate control. This feature delivers comfort to the driver, front passenger, and those seated in the back, so there’s no temperature clashing inside the cabin.

If you’re in the driver’s seat, you spend a lot of time up front. The 3 Series comes with 14-way power front seats with Electric Seat Adjustment and a memory system included for both seats up front. The A4 isn’t quite able to match this capability with 8-way power front seats that don’t provide the same settings as the 3 Series.

Tech Features

If you’re interested in top-notch tech in your next car, these luxury sedans provide the features you’re looking for. The Audi A4 comes standard with the new MIB 3 infotainment system that includes a center display and smartphone integration.

The 3 Series also comes with plenty of tech, including the iDrive system, an 8.8-inch screen, and smartphone capability via Apple CarPlay®. Connect that phone for access to text messages, navigation apps, and your favorite songs, and control everything right through the touchscreen.
