Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Passport than in the Audi Q3, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Honda Passport 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 Honda Passport, 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 Honda Passport. 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 Honda Passport.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q3 is much slimmer than the Honda Passport, 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 Honda Passport.

Handling
The Audi Q3 has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Passport, 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 Honda Passport.

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

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

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