2019 Audi A4 vs 2019 BMW 3 Series

Serving Pembroke Pines, FL

You understandably expect great things from your next executive car, such as spirited performance, sophisticated style, and advanced features. If you have narrowed your search down to compact car models, the Audi A4 is likely at the top of your list. However, you may wonder how it stacks up against the BMW 3 Series. The 2019 A4 has several decades of history impressing drivers and is a fifth-generation model. The 3 Series was introduced more than 40 years ago and is a seventh-generation model. Through close review, you can quickly determine the standout differences between these two cars.


The 2019 Audi A4 has a sleek, sophisticated profile, which is combined with a sharp edginess that expresses its power. The front end features a hexagonal grille with the graceful flow as the bumper rounds to the sides. The grille’s shape is set off by the angular, lightning bolt-style LED headlights and the geometric foglamp portals. Subtle character lines across the hood and side panels have minimal curvature, which creates a sense of strength and motion. In contrast, the 2019 BMW 3 Series has a short grille with a bowtie design, pointed headlights, and T-shaped foglamp portals. The contours on the hood and sides are smoothed out and lack solid definition.


These two executive car models are available in several trims, and these trims each boast unique standard features. Some of the equipment in the 2019 Audi A4 include a 12.3-inch virtual cockpit display screen, a navigation system, leather interior, Audi Connect technology, front and rear acoustic parking sensors, a top-view camera, an infotainment system screen with smartphone technology, powered front seats with memory, heated seats, a hands-free trunk release, keyless entry, a premium sound system and numerous other superior features. In the 2019 BMW 3 Series, you may find power seats, mounted steering wheel controls, keyless entry, an interior trunk release, a sound system, a climate control system, SensaTec upholstery, and so much more.


While both of these models are available with different powertrain options, they also have various mechanical equipment that impacts performance. The 2019 Audi A4 comes with Quattro all-wheel drive, an S-Tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission, and an available sport suspension. The driving mode can easily be selected through the touch-screen display, and the individual modes of auto, dynamic, and comfort. The 3 Series for 2019 comes with electric power steering, rear suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes, and a few other components.
