2017 Volkswagen Passat vs. 2017 Audi A4
German automakers like Volkswagen and Audi have long been known for their exquisite craftsmanship and style. They stand out on any road with their unmistakable flair. The best way to see how they compare to one another is to compare models from the same class, which is what we've done with our side-by-side of the 2017 Volkswagen Passat and the 2017 Audi A4 in the midsize sedan class.
The 2017 Audi A4 is an impressive sedan with 252 horsepower in all three of its trim levels, which begin at $34,900 MSRP and work their way up from there. This luxury sedan comes with available Bang & Olufsen audio, with an impressive number of speakers, but for those who desire top-notch audio and a well-respected name in rock n' roll, Fender Premium audio is available for top-line 2017 VW Passats. The 2017 Passat also has a vastly lower starting MSRP at $22,400, which is more than $12,000 less than the starting MSRP for the 2017 Audi A4, and comes with more peak horsepower at 280. Bottom line (and pardon the pun) - when you compare the prices for these two cars, the Volkswagen option has a price you just can't Passat up.

The 2017 Volkswagen Passat is coming off a banner year in which it was named Cars.com's "Best Midsize Sedan" for 2016. The Audi A4 did not share this distinction, however, due in part to its higher price. The 2017 Passat also comes in a wide variety of options, with seven available trim levels to choose from, while the 2017 Audi A4 offers fewer choices with only three trim levels.
A sedan with more potential power, great available Fender audio, and a superior price – that's the 2017 VW Passat.
