About Audi Q3

The 2017 Audi Q3 goes head-to-head with the Mercedes-Benz GLA, BMW X1, Lexus NX and other small-luxury-crossover SUVs. Like those rivals, the Audi Q3 promises the kind of premium driving experience suggested by the "Audi" name, but at a relatively affordable price point, which in the case of the Q3 is somewhere a little north of $30,000. Those seeking the ultimate driving experience will likely gravitate toward the BMW X1, and the Mercedes-Benz arguably offers a bit more valet-parking cachet. However, the 2017 Q3 offers a distinctly Audi driving experience. Couple that with Audi's renowned fit and finish and its distinctly Audi styling, and the Q3 is easily evocative of its bigger, more expensive Q brothers.

"It was really difficult leaving a 19-year old Volvo that still wouldn't die. But I made the choice to try an Audi. I needed a fashionable small SUV that would get me through very bad winter driving conditions in northern Canada. I opted for the lowest trim level (Komfort) with AWD, and skipped all the driving assist equipment (who needs that anyways?) Pros: Looks great, beautiful facade and LED/Xenon headlights - I'm always getting admiring looks. Beautifully laid-out interior. Zippy when you need it to be, but great fuel economy. My overall average economy is 8.8L/100km (26.7mpg). More recently in the warmer weather it has been 7.96L/100km (29.5mpg). Steady as a rock in ice storms and snow squalls (I've NEVER felt it slip). Trunk space is very big with rear seats folded. AWESOME Audi-brand speakers/subwoofer, you do not need the Bose ones. Beautiful long standard sunroof. Rear and side mirror defrosters are very powerful. Quite small, so fits well in traffic in downtown Toronto. Smooth ride over rough roads. This car was actually a very affordable lease, cheaper than the Mazda CX-5 I was looking at. I also looked at the BMW X1 and the Mercedes GLA - considering what comes standard on the Q3, Audi was definitely the cheaper option. Cons: Must use mid-to-high grade gas (I use a combo depending on the price). Rain-sensing wipers do not have a low enough speed. Certain interior panels rattle with bass-y music. Wipers are NOT heated and do NOT defrost, no matter how high or how long you run the defroster. 18-inch open rims means mud, snow, and ice easily accumulates and causes severe rumbling at high speeds. Seat warmers are not the hottest. Black paint chips very easily. Not meant for 5 adults, definitely not enough rear legroom. Would I go for an Audi Q3 again? Yes. I wanted a car that made me excited to look at and drive, yet get me safely through really tough conditions. I consider the fuel economy and affordable price as surprise bonuses."

"I'm an Audi addict because of my wife. I owned 2 BMW's and was ready to buy a Mercedes Benz. Wouldn't even consider Audi. My wife implored me to just look. 60 seconds into a test drive I was a believer. Audi is a perfect combination of zest, finesse, appointments, quality, beauty and absolute driving joy. I bought the Q3 Prestige on the spot and could not be happier. Owning an A4 and a Q3 I am in auto heaven. EVERY single drive is an adventure in happiness."

"Had an A4 before this and several VW's earlier, but needed to haul stuff so I switched to the Q3. Yes, it is not a rocket like the A4, but it is such a well balanced drive- In it, I feel I've got the road. But don't get me wrong: when I need to rev up on Vermont's two lane highways, this car gets it done without a fuss. Test drove the X1 which has more power, but it lacks the finish and design...The only word I can think of is elegant. For me, Audis are the right combo of intelligence and performance. Love this car. Will probably buy out my lease"
