2017 Honda Accord vs. 2016 Audi A3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord than the Audi A3. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Accord 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 Honda Accord 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 Honda Accord 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 Honda Accord carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Audi A3.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Accord is much wider than the Audi A3, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Honda Accord, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi A3.

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

Handling
The Honda Accord has a larger turning radius than the Audi A3, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Accord is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi A3.
