Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 428 than the Audi A3, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 428 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A3.

Convenience
The BMW 428 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi A3, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).
