Comparison Between BMW 3 Series vs. Audi A4

Physically, both models have a sedan body that seats five passengers in a four-door sedan. The two have tubeless or radial tires, and both use gasoline for their fuelling. Although you need to know both models' sizes, the significant factor you should consider while settling for your choice is the design.

The BMW's design is one to behold since it has a beautiful front view. It has two kidney grills held together in one chromed frame that connects with the headlights. The combination also includes a sharp lower line that divides the headlamps. Two styling lines divide the headlamps, which are part of the angled bars which are in the prominent grille. Remember, the lines don't show on the lower trim since it has a different front bumper. It also has a NACA air inlet design at the sides, with the primary inlet having an outer point pointing downwards. However, its bumper has a larger central channel in the upper trim with its external point facing down.

Even after undergoing a makeover, Audi's model doesn't have much to show. But the outer inlet has a new look that allows passage of the duct beneath the center grille. Even so, its grille pokes in front after the makeover, although it still has the same shape containing horizontally chromed bars.

If you look at the BMW's sides, you'll realize it's more masculine than those before it. The Audi's side is much cleaner, with beautiful details that will make you fall for it instantly. The BMW's model has a modern interior that also includes new technological features. The interior's fabrics are of high quality with enough legroom space.
