2016 Volkswagen Passat vs. 2016 Audi A4 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Passat you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi A4, due to its larger tank size and better 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Volkswagen Passat will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Audi A4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volkswagen Passat carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Audi A4.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen Passat is significantly less powerful than the Audi A4. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volkswagen Passat and the Audi A4.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen Passat is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi A4.
