2018 Audi A3 vs. 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A3 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Accord Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord Hybrid, the Audi A3 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi A3, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Accord Hybrid. 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 Honda Accord Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A3 is much slimmer than the Honda Accord Hybrid, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Honda Accord Hybrid.

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 Honda Accord Hybrid.

Handling
The Audi A3 has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Accord Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A3 is somewhat more powerful than the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A3 and the Honda Accord Hybrid. The Audi A3 has less cargo capacity than the Honda Accord Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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