Comparison Review

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

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q3 is much slimmer than the Kia Telluride, 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 Kia Telluride.

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

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

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

Utility
The Audi Q3 has less seating than the Kia Telluride, making the Kia Telluride the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q3 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Telluride.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi Q3 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Telluride.
