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.

love it. you should consider it

a great car in all respects. Fun to drive. Consumer Reports recommends the 2016 and 2018 models for reliability. I highly recommend it. well built


The Best SUV for the money ❤️

Fantastic car I love the styling inside and outside. I have had Audi‘s in the past, so I know they are fantastic cars. This one does not disappoint.


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.
