Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Terrain than in the Audi Q3, due to its greater head- and legroom. The GMC Terrain offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi Q3, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q3 as you will with the GMC Terrain, 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). The Audi Q3 is somewhat more expensive than the GMC Terrain. 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 Audi Q3 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the GMC Terrain.

Dimensions
The Audi Q3 is about the same width as the GMC Terrain. The Audi Q3 is slightly shorter than the GMC Terrain, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Audi Q3 has the same turning radius as the GMC Terrain, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi Q3 has a little more horsepower than the GMC Terrain.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q3 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the GMC Terrain.

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

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