Audi's offering for the compact crossover class is an excellent one with strong engines and a well-designed interior. There's also the firm's high build quality to make the Audi Q3 stand out from the crowd.
In the fiercely fought compact premium SUV segment, the Q3 fights its own corner against some better-known opponents. With its excellent styling, the Q3 has a classic feel and the build quality is unmatched.
Being an Audi, there's a good range of engines with two petrol units available including an impressive 1.4 litre turbocharged unit that will return 50mpg. For better pulling power and fuel efficiency, the Q3's diesels make for a better choice which consist of a 2.0 litre unit with two power outputs - the lowest of which will still return 61mpg.
The engines are coupled to a dual-clutch auto gearbox or six speed manual, and the choice of two- or four-wheel-drive. While the Q3 performs well on slippery surfaces, it's not really designed for off-roading but many drivers will not be testing its abilities.
There's also a lots of equipment fitted as standard including dual zone climate control, an infotainment system, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth connectivity and DAB radio. Other models come with satnav, 19 inch alloys and leather seats.
There's a surprising amount of space on board the Audi Q3 and it handles well with excellent driving abilities. Around town it is fun to drive while on the motorways the engines are responsive and powerful. The chassis also underpins its handling with the quality build and smart cabin materials help to make it an impressive car for the sector. For many drivers, this level of quality and comfort will be very important and for this reason, the Q3 beats many of its rivals.
