2023 Audi Q3 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2023 Audi Q3?

Agile and ideally sized for busy traffic conditions, the 2023 Audi Q3 is a five-seat subcompact luxury SUV that comes standard with all-wheel drive and offers a choice of 184- or 228-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. The latter of the two has more pep for your daily driving needs, with fuel economy that’s close to what you get with the base engine. The Q3’s cabin is nicely finished, and the 8.8-inch touchscreen (or optional 10.1-inch screen) is simple to navigate. Cargo space and rear legroom, however, are less than what you get in many other small luxury SUVs. Competitors include the BMW X1, Lexus UX, Mercedes-Benz GLA and Volvo XC40.

What’s New on the 2023 Audi Q3?

LED headlights are now standard on every Audi Q3, and the available wireless smartphone charging pad has been redesigned.

Should I Buy the 2023 Audi Q3?

The Q3 is an Audi SUV, only smaller. That might sound obvious, but luxury brands sometimes skimp on the details when it comes to their less bulky (and less expensive) SUVs. Not here; driving refinement and a nicely designed cabin make sure the Q3 doesn’t feel like a budget ride with a fancy label slapped on its front grille. Cargo space and backseat legroom are acceptable, though rivals (particularly the BMW X1) deliver more of each.
