2014 Honda Accord vs. 2015 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. The Honda Accord will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A3.

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 Honda Accord 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. 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
The Honda Accord 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 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.
