Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Audi Q3, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Edge will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q3.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q3 as you will with the Ford Edge, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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 Audi Q3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Edge. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi Q3 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Edge.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q3 is much slimmer than the Ford Edge, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi Q3, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Edge.

Handling
The Audi Q3 has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Edge, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q3 has a lot less horsepower than the Ford Edge.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q3 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Edge.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q3 and the Ford Edge. The Audi Q3 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Edge.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi Q3 than that of the Ford Edge.
