One of the reasons to choose from these vehicles is the impressive performance they offer, however the new Audi A3 boasts superior power, 220-Horsepower to the paltry 180-Horsepower of the 320i.

The superior torque of the Audi A3 will translate to a more responsive experience, with the car responding to your acceleration in a more satisfying way than the BMW model, which only offers 200 pound-feet of torque compared to the 258 pound-feet of the Audi model. As a performer, the A3 easily outdoes the 320i.


The Audi A3 continues the commitment of Audi to deliver the very best interiors possible, and with the unparalleled in-dash interface of the Audi A3, New Orleans drivers will find superior satisfaction in the Audi model, as opposed to the comparatively sparse offerings of the BMW 320i.
