Compare BMW i4 vs. Tesla Model 3

See Why the New BMW i4 Outshines the New Tesla Model 3 in Santa Maria

If you think an electric luxury car should pamper you with a plush ride and an array of convenient features, get the new BMW i4. Like all BMW vehicles, the i4 is quick and comfortable. Its futuristic infotainment system will help you stay engaged when slogging through slow traffic in Nipomo. The new Tesla Model 3 is also a high-performing electric luxury car, but here at BMW of Santa Maria, we think it lacks the overall refinement of the i4. Read the comparison below to see why.

BMW i4

Tesla Model 3

Ride Quality

If you want a relaxing ride on the way home from work in Lompoc, choose the new BMW i4. This electric luxury car comes standard with a rear air suspension that keeps it calm and composed, even when the road turns rough. An optional adaptive suspension with multiple settings lets you fine-tune its ride even more. The Tesla Model 3 usually rides comfortably, but it can feel unsettled for a luxury car when driving over broken pavement.

Infotainment System

The new BMW i4 has an innovative infotainment system, with displays that can be configured and arranged to your liking. Arroyo Grande drivers will appreciate that it comes standard with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Tesla Model 3's infotainment system has submenus that can be distracting to scroll through while driving. It doesn't offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

Seat Comfort

The new BMW i4 sits lower, so it places you much closer to the road than you are in the Tesla Model 3. People in San Luis Obispo will like the i4's well-bolstered seats, which provide significantly better side support than the Model 3 and keep you more comfortable during spirited driving.
