Compare The New 2020 Audi A4 vs 2020 BMW 330i Models

The compact sports sedan is one of the most competitive segments in the automotive world. The BMW 3 Series has been a venerable contender in this area for decades, but the latest Audi A4 offers even more technology, style and capability than the latest BMW 3 series. And we'll prove it to you below! See how the 2020 Audi A4 compares to the 2020 BMW 330i in this side-by-side comparison from the team at Audi Columbus.

Audi A4 Dual Exhaust

Design Comparison: 2020 Audi A4 vs 2020 BMW 330i

With available animating LED Matrix-design headlights and animating turn signals, the 2020 Audi A4 has a slick, modern look that the 2020 BMW 3 Series with its traditional indicators just can't compete with. When you lock or unlock your Audi A4, the headlights and taillamps will animate to greet you, and the turn signals animate to announce your intentions with a flourish. Pair that with the iconic Singleframe® grille, dual exhaust outlets and High-gloss aluminum exterior trim and the 2020 Audi A4 has a premium yet sporting appearance.

When it comes to size, both these cars are virtually identical, and they both even come with a standard power sunroof for an even airier feeling in the cabin.


Audi A4 Leather Interior

Features Comparison: 2020 Audi A4 vs 2020 BMW 330i

All the luxury features you expect from a premium import sedan come standard on the 2020 Audi A4. That includes a few places the entry-level 2020 BMW 330i comes up short. For example, the 2020 Audi A4 features standard power, heated front seats wrapped in genuine leather for a truly premium feel. You get synthetic leather as standard on the 2020 BMW 330i and heated front seats are an added-cost option.

And while both cars come with Apple CarPlay® for compatibility with iPhones, you only get Android Auto™ on the 2020 Audi A4. If you're an android user, you'll be limited to Bluetooth® functionality only in the 2020 BMW 330i.

Audi A4 Wheels Spinning

Performance Comparison: 2020 Audi A4 vs 2020 BMW 330i

At the entry-level, the more affordable 2020 Audi A4 comes with a less-powerful engine than its BMW rival. But, when you upgrade to the 2020 Audi A4 with quattro® all-wheel drive, you get a boost to 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque! Furthermore, with a dual-clutch automatic transmission, the 2020 Audi A4 provides quicker, smoother shifts than the single-clutch automatic transmission in the 2020 BMW 330i.

Furthermore, the 2020 Audi A4 also has an optional sport suspension that lowers the ride height by 23 mm and provides even sportier handling response. A factory-lowered suspension is not an option at all on the 2020 BMW 330i.


Audi A4 Virtual Cockpit

Driver Assistance Comparison: 2020 Audi A4 vs 2020 BMW 330i

Both these cars provide standard driver assist technologies to help protect you, including standard forward collision warning, automatic pre-collision braking and lane departure warning. Furthermore, both models also offer optional self-parking features, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and more!

The 2020 Audi A4 sets itself apart from the 2020 BMW 3 Series in this area with a bit of optional technology to help you keep your eyes on the road. An available head-up display with traffic sign recognition puts your speed, navigation directions, the current speed limit and more onto the windshield. The 2020 BMW 330i is available with a head-up display, but not traffic sign recognition.
