Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 228 Gran Coupe with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The BMW 228 Gran Coupe will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A4 as you will with the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 A4 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe. 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 A4 will cost more in transportation costs than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A4 is much wider than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A4, which is slightly longer than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.

Handling
The Audi A4 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A4 has less horsepower than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the BMW 228 Gran Coupe. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Audi A4 as you will in the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.
