If the 320 had a smaller more efficient engine providing significantly better mpgs, then it would have been a different story. You can get that kind of power/torque from a 1.7-1.8L engine, but with much better efficiency, i.e. 40+mpg on the highway.
A basic A4 Quattro is a pretty boring car whereas even a stripped 320i will be fun to drive. It is lighter and more nimble.
