Dimensions & Size: 2019 Audi S3 & 2019 Audi S4

While luxury cars don't often neatly fit into segments like "compact" and "midsize," one of the most obvious differences between these two cars is indeed their dimensions. The 2019 Audi S3, for example, is close in size to a subcompact sedan. It's about 6" shorter in overall length than popular compact sedans like the Honda Civic and Nissan Sentra.

The 2019 Audi S4, on the other hand, is a compact sedan that's about the same size as those everyday commuter cars. That means the Audi S4 gives you a bit more legroom and more cargo space in the trunk compared to the Audi S3. It also weighs more and has a wider turning radius.

2019 Audi S3 vs 2019 Audi S4 Interior Details

Standard Equipment: 2019 Audi S3 & 2019 Audi S4

With standard features like leather upholstery, touchscreen infotainment with smartphone connectivity, heated front seats and LED headlights with LED daytime running lights, both these slick-looking sedan cars are exquisitely appointed. You can also get upgrades like built-in navigation, wireless device charging and a premium audio system on both the 2019 Audi S3 and Audi S4.

However, there are a few subtle differences. For instance, the 2019 Audi S4 comes standard with massaging front seats and three-zone automatic climate control. Those features aren't available on the smaller Audi S sedan. And, if you're looking for a big sunroof on a small car, the 2019 Audi S3 comes standard with an enormous panoramic sunroof. The 2019 Audi S4 features a smaller, traditional sunroof.

Advanced Technology: 2019 Audi S3 & 2019 Audi S4

Standard on both the 2019 Audi S3 and S4, the Audi Smartphone Interface makes it a cinch to pair your smartphone to the infotainment touchscreen for hands-free communication. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are standard on both sedans.

Cutting-edge technology can also help keep you safe in both these cars! They both come standard with Audi pre sense® pre-collision automatic braking. Available safety features like Audi side assist, rear cross-traffic assist and adaptive cruise control with stop & go can be added as options in either model. However, there's even more technology available on the 2019 Audi S4. Unlike it's little brother, the 2019 Audi S4 can be equipped with available traffic sign recognition, top view camera system and traffic jam assist. When highway traffic slows to a crawl, the 2019 Audi S4 can not only safely follow the vehicle in front of you, it can even steer itself at low speeds to make traffic jams that much easier to deal with.

Performance: 2019 Audi S3 & 2019 Audi S4

Both these sporty sedans offer incredible power and performance! It's how that power is made and put to use that sets these vehicles apart. The 2019 Audi S3, being smaller and lighter, gets a turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 288 horsepower. That's enough to urge the 2019 Audi S3 from 0-60 MPH in just 4.6 seconds! The 2019 Audi S4 is bigger and gets a mighty, turbocharged V6 engine making 349 horsepower, so the 2019 Audi S4 is even quicker! It'll make the run from 0-60 MPH in as little as 4.4 seconds. However, the 2019 Audi S3 is lighter with a tighter turning circle and quicker steering ratio, so it's even more nimble. What matters more to you in your next performance sedan -- straight-line power or poise in the curves?

However, if you want even more outrageous performance, the 2019 Audi S3 isn't the pinnacle of compact sedan performance from Audi. The track-ready 2019 Audi RS 3 offers even more power! There's no RS version of the Audi S4 sedan.
