Comparing the Audi A3 to Top Competitors

The market for luxury vehicles is one of the most competitive for vehicles, and we want to make sure you can find the one that will be perfect for your needs. At Paul Miller Audi in Parsippany, NJ, we can answer all of your questions to provide the information that you want for a sophisticated sedan, or a convertible for a dynamic driving experience. When you look at top models like the 2018 Audi A3, 2018 BMW 2-Series, and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA, it is clear to see why you should choose the Audi.

2018 Audi A3 v. BMW 2-Series

Audi A3 Versus the BMW 2-Series

With impressive performance and sophisticated styling, the choice between these two models can be difficult, but differences can be drawn. Head-to-head you will see that the Audi presents many benefits, including:

  • Being more affordable for the base and best-equipped options; the Audi will put less stress on your budget.
  • Audi Pre-Sense Basic and Audi Pre-Sense prepares you and your vehicle for a possible collision when it recognizes quick brake inputs or skidding to keep you safe, it then provides a warning, a quick brake application that would initiate brake assist, and then partial braking to slow your vehicle, then, if you have regular Audi Pre-Sense, a possible fourth step of stronger automatic braking. The BMW 2-Series doesn’t have a feature that does all that.
  • More passenger-friendly options are available with the A3 because of a its four-door sedan and convertible option whereas the 2-Series only has two-door Coupe and Convertible options.
  • Drive Select Mode in the A3 to let you adjust your driving style on the fly, while the 2-Series doesn’t offer a comparable feature.

2018 Audi A3 v. 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA

Audi A3 Versus the Mercedes-Benz CLA

Mercedes-Benz and Audi are among top competitors if you are looking for a vehicle that will keep you comfortable while providing enough power to keep you excited. Once again, the Audi A3 can bring you more than its competitor, and we want to show you how.

  • The Audi A3 is more reasonably priced, especially if you are looking to upgrade to the top trim options.
  • Both models offer Front-wheel drive as standard and All-wheel drive as an option, but Mercedes-Benz doesn’t offer the quattro system that Audi uses for its all-wheel drive.
  • The Audi Virtual Cockpit allows you to customize what you are seeing on the 12.3-inch instrument display, while the Mercedes-Benz CLA doesn’t offer any similar feature
  • The available MMI Touch system in the Audi A3 allows you to use handwriting to enter what you need, keeping your eyes forward while you can easily input what you need. Neither the Mercedes-Benz navigation system nor the COMAND® system allows you to control it like this.
