Comparing Price, Performance & Style of These Popular Sedans from Audi & BMW

  • The 2018 Audi A4 begins at a price tag of only $36,000, while the 2018 BMW 3 Series starts at a slightly cheaper $34,900. However, to have comparable features, BMW makes you move up trim levels and pay considerably more for equipment found standard on the A4.
  • The base trim of the new A4 is equipped with a four-cylinder Turbocharged TFSI® engine that delivers 190 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. At the base trim level for the new 3 Series is an inline four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine that fails to offer the same levels of power and responsiveness.
  • The 2018 Audi A4 earned an appealing fuel economy rating of 31 combined mpg, while the 2018 BMW 3 Series earned a lesser rating of only 28 combined mpg.
  • The well-known and legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system by Audi provides exceptional grip, traction and control on the roads. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology as well as predictive and proactive ingenuity, this quattro® AWD system found on the A4 is widely considered superior to BMW's available xDrive AWD system.
  • In regards to exterior style, the new A4 is simply stunning. With dramatic curves, beautiful angles, an athletic and poised stance, the signature Audi badge on the aggressive front grille, a sleek profile and a commanding presence, the Audi A4 is more modern and attractive than the traditional and conservative styling of the 3 Series, which some will find outdated.
