Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Cherokee than in the Audi Q3. The Jeep Cherokee offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi Q3, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Cherokee as you will with the Audi Q3, 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 Jeep Cherokee will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Audi Q3. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the Audi Q3.

Dimensions
The Jeep Cherokee is about the same width as the Audi Q3. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Cherokee, which is slightly longer than the Audi Q3.

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

Handling
The Jeep Cherokee has a smaller turning radius than the Audi Q3, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Jeep Cherokee has a little more horsepower than the Audi Q3.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Cherokee and the Audi Q3. The Jeep Cherokee has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Audi Q3.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi Q3.
