Audi A3 vs Honda Accord in Charlotte

Upgrade from Economy: Why the Audi A3 Sedan is a Great Alternative to the Honda Accord in Charlotte

Make an Inquiry

Many drivers in Charlotte, Huntersville, Concord, and Cornelius NC do choose the Honda brand to find their next daily driver--with a strong brand reputation and a nice selection of vehicles, it makes sense for those buying on a budget.

But if you've got your eye on a well-equipped Honda Accord, you might be surprised to learn that you could get a comparable Audi A3 sedan for similar lease or loan costs



Compare Power and Performance

Whether you're buying a car for its value, for its practicality, or for its capability, it's always nice to know that you can tap into that inner, primal desire to hit the gas and feel a fast, thrilling response from your vehicle. Both the Accord and the A3 offer fun performance options--but which one is going to be right for you?

  • The stunning Audi A3 offers an available quattro┬« all-wheel-drive; the Accord offers only front-wheel drive
  • Though the Honda Accord boasts a bloated 278-horsepower V6 engine option, the Audi A3's selection of turbocharged engines gives you a more responsive and more sporty feel out on the road
  • The A3's 2.0-liter turbo actually produces more torque than the heavier V-6--and torque is where it really counts
  • Thanks to ultra┬« lightweight technology, the A3 improves performance and efficiency without compromising on strength and stability of the body--the Accord is left in the dust of engineering advancements

Compare Safety Features and New Technology

But maybe you're leaning toward Honda for its name in safety and tech--well, the Audi A3 can match or outmatch what the Accord has to offer.

  • With its available Driver Assistance Package, the A3 offers exceptional safety ratings from top experts across the industry
  • Both models offer driver awareness systems for blind-spot assistance and cruise control assistance--but with the advanced work of Audi engineering, the A3 can simply do it better
  • Audi's MMI touch-sensitive scroll wheel allows you to control your vehicle systems quickly and easily--a premium and functional feature that the Accord doesn't offer
  • Available Audi connect system in the A3 gives you access to Google Earth with 3D imagery, Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE, Twitter integration, and so much more; the Accord's HondaLink is limited mostly to music and audio streaming
