2019 A4 vs 2019 3 Series: Performance

Under the hood of these two vehicles, you'll find an impressive engine that is capable of great things. Each provides a solid horsepower and more than 200 lb-ft of torque but what these powertrains are melded to differ quite a lot.

For example, the Audi A4 comes with a dual-clutch automatic transmission. Compared to the 8-speed automatic transmission in the BMW, it changes gear much quicker, providing you an athletic drive that is hard to beat. This is because the engine never has to be disconnected, resulting in lightening quick shifting. Plus, these transmissions are also more efficient and incredibly smooth.

Another difference is the available all-wheel-drive system. In the 2019 BMW 3 Series, you will find the optional xDrive intelligent AWD. Like traditional systems, it delivers power to all four wheels to promote smooth handling and control. But in the Audi A4, its amps it up a notch with quattro® AWD. This works directly with the dual-clutch transmission to not only heighten traction and grip on the road but agility, as well.

A4 vs 3 Series: Sound Systems

No drive is complete, especially in the sports vehicle, without an on-the-road playlist. This is where the advanced audio systems in the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series come in. Both provide the highest audio quality, but which one will better suit your listening pleasure?

  • Audi A4 Bang & Olufsen®: This top runner in advanced sound technology features 3D sound that will make you feel like you're at the concert hall. It gives you 19 speakers ideally placed around the vehicle, as well as a 16-channel amplifier and 755 watts of power.


  • BMW 3 Series Harman Kardon®: This hi-fi audio system doesn't quite reach the heights of the one found in the 2019 Audi A4. It offers no 3D sound technology and only 16 speakers. Plus, with its limited 7-channel amp and 464-watts of power, you may be left wanting more.
