There are plenty of ways to get around the Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens, NY, areas, but if you want the most rewarding experience possible, a luxury sedan might be your best bet. These vehicles are sleek, efficient, and packed full of exciting features that will have you looking forward to every time you get behind the wheel.

You’ll find numerous sedan options to choose from—even when you narrow it down to luxury models—but two that stand out include the 2020 BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4. Both vehicles feature some of the latest and greatest perks, but you can only drive one of them home.

To help you decide which is right for you, we at BMW of Manhattan have put together this guide. Find out which is best-suited for your needs with our BMW 3 Series vs. Audi A4 comparison.

BMW M3 Engine Specs

BMW 3 Series vs Audi A4: Performance

Your luxury sedan should perform like nothing you’ve ever driven before. You might find that to be true no matter which of these vehicles you opt for.

If you’re looking to increase your power, the BMW 3 Series and its optional 3.0-liter turbocharged 6-cylinder engine can offer 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The A4 can only offer an available 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.

BMW M3 Interior

BMW 3 Series vs Audi A4: Interior

Inside either sedan, you’ll find comfort no matter how long your drive is. In terms of sheer space, however, you might be happier behind the wheel of the BMW 3 Series. With 38.7 inches of headroom and 42 inches of legroom in the front, you can seriously stretch out.

Compared to the more restrictive 37.3 inches of front headroom and 41.3 inches of front legroom in the A4, you’ll have less wiggle room to get comfortable.

The 3 Series can also offer your rear passengers 37.6 inches of headroom and 35.2 inches of legroom. The A4 offers generous space for your rear passengers, as well, but not as much. It only offers 37.4 inches of rear headroom.

For example, the BMW 3 Series comes with the BMW Assist eCall emergency response system and automatic collision notification. The A4 has no similar feature.
