Serving Brentwood, TN

Compact luxury sedans remain a great option for drivers seeking value. Featuring a refreshed exterior with new dual exhaust outlets, the 2019 Audi A4 definitely ranks among the segment’s top contenders. It’s efficient, fun to drive, and loaded with attractive features. Available Quattro all-wheel drive gives you extra peace of mind in bad weather. Let’s see how the new 2019 Audi A4 compares to the 2019 Lexus IS.


Both cars come standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. However, the 2019 Audi A4 packs more muscle under its hood. Audi rates the A4’s engine to develop a satisfying 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. With a total production of 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, the Lexus IS isn’t quite as potent. Upon stepping on the accelerator, drivers will immediately notice the Audi A4’s stronger punch. You’ll also appreciate the Audi A4’s higher fuel economy. Expect the Audi A4 Ultra to return an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. The Lexus IS tops out at 21 mpg in town and 30 mpg on the highway.


If you need to accommodate your family and friends, the interior room becomes a key factor. While both of these cars can seat up to five people, the 2019 Audi A4 gives your passengers more space to stretch out. Folks sitting in the back of the Audi A4 will enjoy an extra 3.5 inches of legroom. Although the Lexus IS comes loaded with a good amount of standard equipment, certain features are only available on the Audi A4. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make Audi's standard MMI infotainment system more rewarding for smartphone users. You also can’t get the A4’s available Virtual Cockpit on the Lexus IS. This fully digital gauge cluster gives you easy access to important data, including music playlists and high-resolution driving maps.
