2015 Audi A3 vs. 2015 Hyundai Sonata Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Sonata than the Audi A3, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Sonata will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A3.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata 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). The Audi A3 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Sonata, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Hyundai Sonata.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A3 is much slimmer than the Hyundai Sonata, 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 Hyundai Sonata.

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

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A3 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Sonata.
