At first glance, the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series appear to be natural competitors, but the 330i shines as the obvious choice for the performance-minded driver. The BMW 3 Series 2.0-liter engine showcases a hearty 255 horsepower and is available in rear-wheel drive or x-Drive, BMW’s propriety all-wheel-drive system. The BMW x-Drive system can articulate up to 100% of the available engine power to either axle in any proportion or up to 50% of the power to any single wheel. The Quattro system, Audi’s all-wheel-drive system, just can’t match the BMW system’s level of articulation, as it is limited to a maximum of 70% of the power to the front axle, and 85% to the rear axle. The base Audi A4 comes with a front-wheel-drive system and a four-cylinder engine that produces 188 horsepower. Audi also offers an upgraded trim that produces 248 horsepower with Quattro, but the upgraded trim is still less powerful than the BMW 330i’s standard engine. The 330i accelerates from 0-60 in an impressive time of only 5.6 seconds and the standard A4 clocks in at a 7.1 second 0-60 time. The BMW 3 Series also out performs it’s Audi competitor in gas mileage. The 3 Series gets an average of 28 miles per gallon, while the A4 only gets a 27 miles per gallon average.




BMW’s rich heritage includes the creation of the performance luxury class of sports sedans with the debut of the 3 Series in 1975. Since then each new generation of 3 Series has offered class-leading performance, comfort, and styling. For 2020, BMW takes the 3 series family to new heights with the 330i Sedan. BMW has refined and thoughtfully developed the 330i to deliver exhilarating performance paired with maximum efficiency. Flick the 330i into Sport mode and the throttle dials up the responsiveness, the transmission shifts more crisply, and the steering responds nicely. Switch the 330i into Eco Pro mode and enjoy the comfort and efficiency of a vehicle that optimizes all of its systems to save fuel and reduce emissions. The BMW 3 Series will never stop improving, but one thing will always stay the same: the 3 Series delivers the joy of driving, no matter how you define it. BMW’s creation of the luxury sport sedan class has set the standard of quality for generations. The new BMW 330i continues this tradition with new innovation and the ultimate driving machine for the performance-driven individual.
