2015 Audi A4 vs. Its Competition

2015 Audi A4
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Audi A4 is a front- or all-wheel-drive alternative to its traditionally rear-drive competitors.

The BMW 3-Series is a perennial winner amongst the enthusiast crowd, but it's also heavier and more expensive than it has been in the past.

However, it's hard to argue with the turbo-six's performance, though.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes in flavors ranging from the efficient C250, all the way up to luxury-performance C400, but it's perhaps more oriented to comfort than ever before in 2015.

Cadillac's ATS offers fantastic handling and its high-tech CUE infotainment system, in a package that may be one of GM's most compelling vehicles built in recent history.

The Infiniti Q50 is loaded with technology and comes with a hybrid option, and Acura's TLX promises to offer performance in technology in droves, though we haven't had the chance to sample it yet.

Quick Specs
8.2
The 2015 Audi A4 and S4 sedans are tech-laden, trim, handsome alternatives to the other expected German cars, as well as one very good American one.
7.0
The 2018 Infiniti Q50 is powerful, well-equipped luxury sedan that doesn't quite match up to Germany's finest yet.
8.6
The 2015 Acura TLX offers impressive performance, ample features, and smart value.
8.4
The 2015 BMW 3-Series lineup is a sport sedan at heart, but with Sports Wagon and Gran Turismo (hatchback) models, it's a lot more than that.
8.8
The 2015 Cadillac ATS hits all the right marks in handling, performance, quality, comfort, and technology.
8.6
Forget this model's recent past; the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class takes a half-step up in size and a full step ahead of its peer set in sophistication -- and it's now one very charming luxury car.
