In this case it is the Audi A4 B7 that has by 31 percent more horsepower than the Volkswagen Passat B4 Estate. As a result the Audi A4 B7 Avant 2.0 20V 131HP automatic will reach higher velocity. With more horsepower the Audi A4 B7 Avant will as well provide more flexiblility in specific gears.
The Audi A4 B7 Avant 2.0 20V 131HP automatic uses 4 percent fewer fuel in the combined cycle in comparison to the Volkswagen. The Audi A4 B7 Avant 2.0 20V 131HP automatic, which is palced in „mid-size” segment consumes by 0.1 l more fuel than the average in its class. The average fuel consumption in this class in the combined cycle is 7.7 l.
Due to 39 percent higher torque, the engine of the Audi A4 B7 Avant 2.0 20V 131HP automatic distinctly better transmits power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Passat B4. This, in turn, have a positive impact on a car's acceleration.
The fuel consumption of the Audi A4 B7 is 2 percent smaller when compared to the Volkswagen Passat B4 Estate. Despite the fact that the difference is insensible, in the long term it may cause that the vehicle would be considerably less expensive to use.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h

The top velocity of the Audi A4 B7 Avant is greater in comparison to this of the Volkswagen Passat B4 which allows to drive the same distance on the highway faster. The difference that amounts to 6 percent is small and is imperceptible in everyday use.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range and a lower number of revolutions at which the highest torque is delivered has an impact on an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. However, to get a whole view on an engine efficiency, it is worth to analyze a torque performance graph.
The width of the vehicle influences on passanger's inner room as well as driving stability. The Audi A4 B7 Avant 2.0 20V 131HP automatic is 3 percent wider when compared to the Volkswagen Passat B4 Estate. It is often clearly perceptible by driver and passenger in front, who have more space for their elbows.
The Audi A4 B7 Avant has 32 millimeters longer wheelbase when compared to Volkswagen Passat B4 Estate 1.6 100HP manual. Therefore the Audi A4 B7 is more safe and has a better stability. What is more, longer wheelbase affects convenient and more comfortable traveling.
The Audi has by 388 cubic centimeters larger engine size in relation to the Volkswagen Passat B4 Estate 1.6 100HP manual. This play a little role as far as acceleration is concerned, as both values does not differ much.
Model release date
Manufacture of the older vehicle started 11 years prior to its rival thus it is reasonable to suppose that this car is equipped with not so modern technologies .
A manual transmission that is placed in the Volkswagen is more simpler construction and is cheaper in use, however, also it is less comfortable because it requires the driver to work with the clutch to change speeds and it can be lot of inconvenience in a bussy city traffic where drivers have lots of stop and go conditions. An automatic transmission which is in the Audi A4 B7 Avant 2.0 20V 131HP automatic with gears in the amount of 7 – speeds gearbox is in our opinion better choice.
