2021 BMW 3 Series vs 2021 Audi A4

Serving Seaside, CA

For decades now, the BMW 3 Series has remained among the most popular small luxury sedans on the market. Not only is the 3-Series entertaining to drive, but it also has an extremely upscale interior. This comparison will find out how the 2021 BMW 3-Series stacks up against the 2021 Audi A4.


BMW's award-winning 2.0-liter, TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine comes standard on the new 3 Series. It's rated to push out a stimulating 255 horsepower and 294 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, the Audi A4's entry-level engine generates 201 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. When driving the new 3 Series, you can look forward to experiencing an elevated measure of performance. A higher fuel economy rating gives the 3 Series another edge over the competition.


The 2021 Audi A4 is an attractive automobile. However, it does not look nearly as distinctive as the new 2021 BMW 3 Series. Everyone on the road will instantly recognize the 3 Series' signature twin-kidney grille. Drivers seeking a meaner look can opt for BMW's popular M Sport package. Not only does this package add a powerful body kit, but it also lowers the sedan's ride height for an incredibly aggressive stance.


Both of these cars offer an impressive list of luxurious features. However, the 2021 BMW 3 Series outclasses the Audi A4 in overall comfort. A pair of 10-way power front sport seats with side bolsters and thigh support comes standard on the 3 Series. Audi equips the A4 with standard eight-way power front seats, which aren't as customizable.
