2017 Buick Verano vs. 2017 Audi A3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Verano offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Audi A3. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick Verano and the Audi A3 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Verano as you will with the Audi A3, 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). Based on MSRP, the Buick Verano is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi A3. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Buick Verano and the Audi A3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick Verano is about the same width as the Audi A3. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick Verano, which is slightly longer than the Audi A3.

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

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

Performance
The Buick Verano has less horsepower than the Audi A3, 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 Buick Verano and the Audi A3. The Buick Verano has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi A3.

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