Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Venza than in the Audi Q3, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q3 and the Toyota Venza.

Convenience
With the Toyota Venza, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi Q3, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Toyota Venza. 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 Toyota Venza.

Dimensions
The Audi Q3 is about the same width as the Toyota Venza. 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 Toyota Venza.

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 Toyota Venza.

Performance
The Audi Q3 has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Venza.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q3 and the Toyota Venza. The Audi Q3 has less cargo space than the Toyota Venza, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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