2019 BMW 3-Series vs. 2019 Audi A3


The 3-Series has been BMW’s longest-running and most popular model till date. With the redesign of the BMW 3 Series and new additional features, the 2019 BMW 3-Series has improved on its predecessors and is an absolutely stunning car. On the other hand, the 2019 Audi A3 is a four-door sedan that boasts an elegant design and a fairly decent family car to drive. Here is a comparison between both cars.

Design & Style

The 2019 BMW 3-Series has BMW’s signature driver-focused dashboard, providing comfortable reach to the controls. With multiple adjustment options for the seats and steering wheel, it provides a comfortable journey for any drive. You won’t have any problems with space as the 3-Series fits 5 passengers and has quite a lot of trunk space. The spacious, supportive seats are really comfortable on this car as well. It impresses even more with its upscale cabin materials.

The 2019 Audi A3 continues to provide top-notch quality for their interiors with stylish interior designs and the use of premium materials. However, its dashboard looks fairly sparse and isn’t as good looking as the 2-Series but does the job. The front seats on the A3 is spacious and provides a really comfortable ride for passengers. The rear seats, however, might be a bit cramped for those sitting in them.

Technology & Safety

Carrying the iDrive infotainment interface, many drivers feel that there are a lot of things to look forward to in the 2019 BMW 3-Series in terms of technology features. It is loaded with plenty of reliable interfaces that are ever reliable as usual. Daytime pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning are among its safety features.

The 2019 Audi A3 comes with the MMI infotainment system which provides navigation services. The star of the show for the A3 would be Audi’s Virtual Cockpit, which is a 12.3-inch screen that features navigation services and media information with the car’s gauges. The car also provides a nine-speaker audio system, two USB ports, Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay services. Safety features included in the A3 are an ignition disabling device and in detecting unwanted vehicle intrusion.


Gifted with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that turbocharges it to produce 248 horsepower, the 3-Series is indeed a promising car in terms of engine performance. On the other hand, the A3 features a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that produces up to 186 horsepower. In addition to its more powerful engine, the 3-series has fantastic fuel mileage as compared to the A3.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Audi A3 is an excellent car and offers many new features and design improvements from its predecessors. However, the car pales in comparison to the 2019 BMW 3-Series in many categories – better dashboard, better performing engine and more practical interior. The 3-Series is just that much better.
