2021 BMW 2-Series vs. 2021 Audi A3


If you are looking for a sporty sedan that will turn heads wherever you go, then the 2021 BMW 2-Series is the car to go for. You get many tech features that come as standard as well as a roomy cabin. For those long trips, you also get ample luggage room that can fit numerous travel cases. All said, the 2-Series is an incredible sports sedan. When it comes to the 2021 Audi A3, you get a well-styled sub-compact sedan that has been updated for 2021. With bi-xenon headlights and large sporty wheels, this is a car that is going to wow drivers.

Design & Style

The 2021 2-Series is a car that is designed with motor enthusiasts in mind. With its large wheel arches and handsomely contoured body, the 2-Series is at home on the race track as it is on a shopping trip. The cabin is also well done, with an ergonomic design on the instrument panel. This ensures that every button and knob is within easy reach. With the A3, you get an equally well-styled car that features LED taillights among other features. The interior is also well done in the understated style that is a feature of all Audi cars. Space is problematic though and the luggage area is tiny.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to tech features, buyers of the 2021 BMW 2-Series get a host of tech as standard. This includes an infotainment system that offers real-time traffic updates. Also standard is smartphone integration and a responsive infotainment system that is super responsive. The system runs on iDrive, BMW’s highly innovative software. This means you get crisp graphics and intuitive commands. With the 2021 Audi A3, you can expect a fairly decent amount of tech as well. This includes a mobile internet hotspot as well as adaptive cruise control. The only problem with the A3’s tech is that commands are not executed as easily as in the 2-Series.


The 2021 BMW 2-Series comes with a turbocharged 2-liter engine that ensures this sports sedan lives up to its billing. Acceleration is smooth and the vehicle is stable even when cornering. BMW’s superb cabin insulation technology ensures that the 2-Series delivers a quiet ride even under high revs. The 2021 Audi A3 on the other hand features a 2-liter engine that delivers a fairly good performance. Handling is a bit troublesome and the Audi is a little sluggish when launching from a complete stop. Still, this will not trouble most people as the A3 is quite ok for everyday driving.

The Bottom Line

These two sports sedans have a lot to offer drivers. While the differences may not be much, they are significant. For example, the 2021 BMW 2-Series is a far more practical vehicle thanks to its large cabin and generous trunk space. It also drives better than the Audi A3. For this reason, the BMW 2-Series easily wins this comparison.
