Audi A4 vs. Lexus IS 300

  • Interior Comfort: When it comes to interior comfort, the new Audi A4 comes with standard leather-trimmed seating surfaces for both style and comfort. However, the Lexus IS 300 comes with faux-leather upholstery, which doesn't match the elegance of the A4.
  • Technology: The A4 comes with a standard 10.1-inch MMI® touchscreen display. While the IS 300 offers a 10.3-inch high-resolution display, it's neither a touchscreen nor standard so that you will have to pay extra.
  • Smartphone Integration: The A4 comes with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity, but the IS 300 doesn't offer smartphone integration at all.
