Cadillac CT4 vs. Audi A4 vs. BMW 3 Series

In the world of luxury sedans, two names have stood out: Audi and BMW. Now Cadillac has a new model to compete with the entry-level luxury vehicles in the 2021 Cadillac CT4. All three come loaded with modern amenities and innovative technology. Compare them to see which one offers more of what you’re looking for.


One of the things you’ll notice about these three sedans is their affordability. None of them are listed over $50,000, making them a good option for anyone just getting into the luxury market. However, the 2021 Cadillac CT4 comes in at the lowest price with the base model nearly $6000 under the Audi A4 and almost $10,000 below the cost of the BMW 3 Series. Similar pricing is found as you move up the trims.

Luxury Abounds

Even with the price difference, all three sedans offer similar amenities. Premium materials create a refined space while ample space ensures a relaxing ride. Enjoy slightly more legroom for the front seat with the 2021 Cadillac CT4 while the touring suspension provides a smooth and agile ride, which is standard on the base model of the CT4. The other two sedans use regular suspension. While the remote start feature is available on the BMW and Audi, it’s standard on the Cadillac. Engines warm up faster with a block heater, available only on the Escalade at the base trim. Bypass more fuel stations with a 17-gallon tank on the CT4 whereas the BMW and Audi offer 15-gallon tanks.

Premium Power

Under the hoods of all three models are 2.0L I-4 engines. However, the 2021 Cadillac CT4 brings more power with 237 horses over 201 horsepower for the Audi. All-wheel drive gives you more confidence in adverse weather conditions, but only the Cadillac and BMW offer rear-wheel drive as well. Enjoy precise handling and smooth performance for all three sedans with an eight-speed automatic transmission with OD and auto-manual for the Cadillac and BMW and a seven-speed for the Audi. A smaller turning radius makes the CT4 easier to handle.

Safety and Innovation

Drive with confidence when you know you’re backed by a solid warranty. All three sedans keep you covered from bumper to bumper. However, the 2021 Cadillac CT4 takes coverage up a notch with a 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty, which is above the 48-month/50,000-mile warranty both the Audi and BMW provide. Free maintenance is part of the warranty with the Cadillac and BMW. Safety is first for all three models with in-vehicle assistance and airbags. While the CT4 and A4 include knee protection airbags with the base trim, the BMW doesn’t have this option. Cadillac and Audi also provide height-adjustable safety belts, which is missing with the BMW.
