2022 Audi A4 vs 2022 BMW 3 Series

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

Your search for a small luxury sedan would not be complete without looking at the 2022 Audi A4 and the 2022 BMW 3 Series. These are both mid-generation vehicles that seemingly offer a similar ownership experience. However, the Audi A4 is the more affordable of the two options. This is only the beginning of their many differences. What else should you know about the A4 and the 3 Series before settling on a specific model?


These sedans are offered with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine as base-level equipment. However, every A4 for 2022 is also equipped with Quattro all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission. Higher-level Audi A4 trims come with a sport suspension system as well. The standard equipment in the BMW 3 Series is an eight-speed auto transmission and rear-wheel drive.


The exterior of the 2022 A4 is both regal and athletic. It boasts enviable curves through its profile and striking definition across the side panels. The black, hexagonal grille covers most of the surface area on the front end. It is combined with metal-accented air vents and segmented, LED-enhanced headlights. The 3 Series, on the other hand, has a stretched look across the nose. This is defined by a segmented grille and a double scoop design through the headlights.


The Audi A4 is marvelously outfitted across all trim levels for 2022. Depending on the trim you select, your A4 could be equipped with an automated parking system, configurable ambient lighting, leather seats, a heads-up display, a 19-speak Bang & Olufsen sound system, a navigation system, a surround-view camera, and a host of other features. The base equipment in the 3 Series includes faux leather upholstery, automatic climate control, rain-sensing wipers, connected services, a 10-speaker audio system, forward collision mitigation, and more.
