Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Audi Q3, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Santa Fe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q3.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q3 as you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe, 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). The Audi Q3 is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Santa Fe. 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 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q3 is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe, 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 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q3 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Handling
The Audi Q3 has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi Q3 has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi Q3 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
