Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q3 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, with comparable head- and legroom. The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q3.

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). Whether you pick the Audi Q3 or the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, it's going to cost you about the same.

Both the Audi Q3 and the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Audi Q3 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid.
