Audi A3 vs Lexus CT

 Right off the bat, comparing the Lexus CT and the Audi A3 are very similar exterior appearance wise, shorter and wider bodies that both have hatchback designs. There are very similar headlamps between the 2 but when it comes to the grille, they are almost completely different. While both grilles are centered, they are completely different shapes with the Lexus being an hour glass and the Audi being almost a diamond like shape. The 2 models also have almost identical width, length and height.

Where all the biggest differences come in is mainly performance and some interior design differences. With performance, the Lexus has 43MPG city fuel economy while the Audi A4 gets 81MPG city fuel economy. The A4 blows the Lexus out of the water when it comes to fuel economy whether it is city or highway. Our A4 also beats the Lexus out in horsepower, having 204HP compared to the 134HP of the Lexus. Looking for something with front and rear end airbags? Well lucky for you the Audi A4 comes standard with both ends containing airbag protections, while the Lexus, unfortunately, only has front airbags available.  

Some interior design differences are pretty prominent such as the Audi A4 comes standard with a sunroof/moonroof and standard leather seats, but I cannot say the same about the Lexus CT. The Audi A4 will go for a higher price tag than the Lexus CT but you are getting undeniably better quality and performance. If you are in the market for a peak performance and design hatchback, then consider our very own Audi A3 Sportback, available now at Audi of Tacoma in Fife, WA!
