2020 Audi A4 Power & Handling

The Audi A4 comes with one standard engine that comes with two different configurations. The standard configuration is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine that comes with front-wheel drive. It outputs up to 188 horsepower and around 236 pound-feet of torque. The other configuration is the same turbocharged engine that instead works with all-wheel drive. This engine can create 273 pound-feet of torque and up to 248 horsepower. Both options come with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that can even be manually shifted with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

2020 BMW 3 Series Power & Handling

Two engines come with the BMW 3 Series. The base engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, which produces 255 horsepower and around 295 pound-feet of torque. The other available engine is a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6, which can create 369 pound-feet of torque and up to 382 horsepower. Both engines come with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The standard transmission is an eight-speed automatic. We're still more partial to the A4, especially with the paddle shifters.
