2015 Audi A3 vs. 2015 Buick Verano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A3 than in the Buick Verano, due to the Audi A3's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A3 and the Buick Verano in the front seats.

Convenience
The Audi A3 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Buick Verano, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Audi A3 is somewhat more expensive than the Buick Verano. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A3 and the Buick Verano have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A3 is about the same width as the Buick Verano. If you go with the Audi A3, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick Verano.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi A3 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Buick Verano.

Handling
The Audi A3 has about the same turning radius as the Buick Verano, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A3 has less horsepower than the Buick Verano, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A3 and the Buick Verano.

Warranty
The Audi A3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick Verano.
