2015 Audi A3 vs. 2014 Ford Mustang Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A3 as you will with the Ford Mustang, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Ford Mustang. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Ford Mustang.

Drivetrain
The Audi A3 has much less torque than the Ford Mustang, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A3 is significantly less powerful than the Ford Mustang. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A3 than that of the Ford Mustang.
