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 A4 than the Nissan Maxima. The Nissan Maxima 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 Nissan Maxima, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Maxima.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 is about the same width as the Nissan Maxima. The Audi A4 is slightly shorter than the Nissan Maxima, which may make it easier to park.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 is significantly less powerful than the Nissan Maxima. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan Maxima.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Nissan Maxima.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A4 than that of the Nissan Maxima.
