Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Envision 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 Buick Envision.

Convenience
The Buick Envision requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Audi Q3, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Buick Envision. 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 Buick Envision.

Dimensions
The Audi Q3 is a little narrower than the Buick Envision, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Audi Q3 is slightly shorter than the Buick Envision, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q3 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Buick Envision.

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

Performance
The Audi Q3 has a little less horsepower than the Buick Envision.

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