The horsepower is a feature that majority of drivers pay the biggest attention to. In this comparison, it is the BMW 3-Series F30 Touring F31 which has by 24 horsepower more than the Audi, which makes this vehicle a bit faster. Due to more horsepower the BMW should also provide slightly more flexiblility in specific speeds.
The BMW 3-Series F30 Touring F31 320i 184HP manual uses 11 percent fewer in the mixed cycle in relation to the Audi A4 B8 Avant. The difference at the level of 0.8 l is not very appreciable. At the same time during a longer period of time it would give a considerable reduction of costs.
The BMW 3-Series F30 has 8 percent more torque when compared to the Audi A4 B8 Avant 1.8 TFSI 160HP manual. Even though the vast majority of people do not appreciate the maximum torque when buying a automobile, it describes the best how a vehicle is speeding up. In this case the difference is little so it probably will not make a real difference in feeling of driving a car.
The BMW burns up 0.6 l fewer running around the town in comparison to the Audi A4 B8 Avant. The difference in the amount of 6 % is not perceptible in everyday usage of the vehicle, however, in a few years it would give a substantial cost reduction.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Audi A4 B8 Avant 1.8 TFSI 160HP manual is relatively slower compared with the BMW 3-Series F30 Touring F31 320i 184HP manual. The
difference in the amount of
16 % is
quite little and it should
not be substantially taken into
account when buying one of these two
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed where the maximum torque is produced determines how fast an engine achieves its full output with growth in rmp. The lower revolutions or the longer range in which the torque is the highest, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration is felt faster.
The maximum speed of the BMW 3-Series F30 Touring F31 is greater in comparison to this of the Audi A4 B8 Avant which allows to travel the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference at the level of 7 % is not big and is imperceptible in daily use.
The BMW 3-Series F30 has 199 cubic centimeters greater engine displacement in relation to the Audi. As the difference is little, the BMW 3-Series F30 should accelerate a bit faster, of course if other paramerters are the same.
Model release date
The difference in debut day between presented vehicles is only 5 years, however, new technologies for automotive industry are appearing at a fast pace and for that reason the BMW may have more advanced technologies.
