2015 Audi Q3 What's new for 2015? 
2015 Audi Q3

The 2015 Q3 is a new 5-passenger SUV from Audi. Like its bigger brothers the Q5 and Q7, Audi's smallest in the Q line is a crossover SUV, which means it's based on a sedan platform and meant for comfort rather than a truck chassis capable of serious off-roading or towing.

About Audi Q3

The 2015 Audi Q3 is an all-new sport utility vehicle from the German luxury automaker and now the smallest among its Q lineup of SUVs. Where the Audi Q7 and Q5 were a little late to the upscale-SUV party, the Q3 is among the first in the emerging luxury compact/subcompact SUV segment. Like its main rivals the BMW X1 and the new Mercedes-Benz GLA, the 2015 Q3 offers buyers with a budget of $30,000 and change a way to step into a 5-passenger luxury SUV. The new Q3 isn't as spirited or as fuel efficient as an X1, but its freshness grants differentiation (for now), while its quality fit and finish and pleasant road manners are similar to those same attractors in its bigger brothers.

"My decision to get out of my VW R32 and into a compact SUV has been a great choice. In sport mode the 2.0 is plenty powerful to have a good time and in normal drive mode I get the 20/28 epa mileage rating. One regret is that I didn't get the Prestige. The extra features are more than worth the difference in price. Most thing I miss is the back up camera and the Audi Connect. I'm seriously considering about upgrading at the end of the year."

Told the dealership lady I needed a "big bow." She said, "Well, it's not Acura BIG!" Lol

"Bought it for my wife as a commuter car (70 mi/day) after having her take a Honda 175K. Beautiful car, interior is great. Handles great, feels fast enough. Great sound, actually. Makes it feel a little sportier than it actually is. Sport mode breaks 'em loose no problem which in a FWD car makes it feel super solid and it pulls you around a little. Only thing I'd not do again is get the 19" rim upgrade. Looks better but I'd rather have 18"/ 45 or 50 series tires as it has a little too much road feel with the 19s."

"Absolutely adore this car. Its comfortable, nibble, quick on its feet, easy to drive. Snow, well its a champ. Its not a large SUV, its not a station wagon, and its not a car. It is like a hatch back on many cups of coffee. Audi makes a superior product. If you are in the market for a AWD, space in the back (hatch) you want to ride some higher than a car? You must check this out. Its a keeper."
