About Audi Q3

The stylish new 2018 Audi Q3 is the luxury brand’s smallest and least expensive SUV. It’s a compelling entry in the highly competitive small-luxury-SUV segment where it competes against the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the BMW X1, the Lexus NX and the Infiniti QX30. The new Q3 offers all-wheel drive, a luxurious interior and Audi’s legendary high standard of fit and finish. The compact-crossover SUV, which we recently named one of the 10 Best Luxury Cars Under $35,000, seats five and delivers on Audi’s promise of a premium driving experience. It’s fun to drive with a desirable balance of comfort and performance. Q3 pricing starts around $32,000, and standard equipment includes a 200-horsepower engine, leather upholstery, power seats, Bluetooth, dual-zone climate controls and a panoramic sunroof.

"I have owned 19 vehicles so far. This is by far the best. We have the 2016 Q3 Prestige. Looks great. Drives great. Liked it so much I bought the Q5 to tow my 16 foot Airstream. What an amazing and beautiful combination. The Q3 is rated to tow 4,400 lbs but cant handle the tongue weight, hence the Q5. Totally sold on Audi. I note that CR just rated Audi the best auto manufacturer and the Q7 the best SUV. The Q3 takes the best small luxury SUV and I can easily see why. My next car will be the 2018 Q7 Prestige. The Q7 has a rated tow capacity of 7,700 lbs which will handle the 23 foot Airstream."

"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."
