Agreed, almost to a T, except for features I would give that to Audi, unless you mean something other an included features, perhaps over all features? I would also argue that withe GLA and Q3 brand loyalty may not factor in hugely, especially if you look at their stated target markets.Usual buyer deciding factors:
1. Brand reputation (equal)
2. Fit, finish, and quality (edge to Audi)
3. Reliability (equal)
4. Features (MB)
5. Price (Audi)
6. Age of model (Q3 older & bugs worked out, GLA first year)
7. Brand loyalty
but not necessarily in that sequence for everyone. Some say never buy the first version of anything, and a $5-8 grand price difference (after fees & taxes) for a loaded vehicle makes a difference. The length of time that the car will be kept can also influence the buying decision (not a big deal if car is only kept for 3 years).
Disclaimer: These opinions are strictly my own and represent my current dilemma.
I am specifically referring to Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Avoidance, and Attention Assist available with the GLA and not with the Q3. Other than that they seem to be comparable.Agreed, almost to a T, except for features I would give that to Audi...
That is smoke and mirrors of leasing and extracting the maximum from the unsuspecting purchaser, e.g., it is only $50 more a month equivalent to a couple of coffees a day or pack a day.Another interesting factor will be what the lease numbers look like. $5-8K difference will work out to only a couple bucks a month more over 3 years and may not hold as much sway as for those financing/cash...
The Audi Q3 has commanded a staggering 50 per cent share of the small premium SUV segment for the first half of this year, its sales totalling a full 72 per cent more than arch-rival the BMW X1. It’s the Audi, then, that is the biggest rival to the brand new Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class and the stalwart it must beat here (although we also requested an X1 to no avail) for the title of Australia’s best small premium SUV.
