2018 Audi Q3 review: Our expert's take


What it is: The Audi Q3 subcompact SUV slots below the compact Q5 but also has seating for five people. It's powered by a 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and is available with front- or all-wheel drive. Rivals in the growing field of small, premium SUVs include the BMW X1, Buick Encore and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.


An S Line front bumper, door sills and badges are now standard. Heated front seats are also standard.

Definitely one of the best cars I have owned

Not only a very good little SUV but it's just what I need at this time. I love the engine/transmission and road-holding. The ride is sporty with plenty of feedback from the road. The trunk is a bit on the small side but with the rear seatbacks down it's OK for my needs. I also love the combination exterior/interior - Florentine silver/chestnut leather - I think i am the only car like this in my hometown.

5.0

Great car for the price!

Great car for the money, has a lot of the safety features I was looking for. It drives well and is very comfortable. I would recommend this car.

5.0

Great car. Great Purchase. Great Dealer

This car meets all of our needs. The transaction at The Collection in Coral Gables was the best auto purchase I have made. These folks treated us like family.
