2016 Ford Fusion vs. 2016 Audi A3 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Fusion will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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. In this case, the Ford Fusion will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Audi A3.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion has a much more powerful engine than the Audi A3. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fusion is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi A3.
