New BMW 1er vs. Audi A3 Sportback – Photo comparison image

The BMW 1 Series starts with new engines and significant rise in proportion and now wants clear supremacy over the Audi A3 Sportback. Both cars are compact, but which one provides more? Here is the first comparison of these two counterparties.

The new BMW 1 Series is initially offered as a five-door only, so for our comparison we used the A3 Sportback.

But which one sells better? The situation is extremely complicated because both cars are selling well almost similar.

In Germany, in the first five months of 2011, Audi sold 21.441 A3’s, while BMW succeeded to sell 21.791 1-series. But now BMW has a new generation 1 Series.
