2015 Audi A7 vs. 2013 BMW M3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A7 than the BMW M3. The BMW M3 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A7.

Convenience
With the Audi A7 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M3, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). The Audi A7 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW M3. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A7 and the BMW M3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A7 is much wider than the BMW M3, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi A7, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW M3.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A7 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW M3.

Handling
The Audi A7 has about the same turning radius as the BMW M3, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A7 is significantly less powerful than the BMW M3. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi A7 offers greater seating capacity than the BMW M3, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Audi A7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M3.
