2017 Audi Q3 Review


The Audi Q3 is a popular small SUV from the German premium brand, that goes head-to-head with the Range Rover Evoque in the battle for buyers’ hearts. It’s been around a few years now, and is showing its age in a few areas, but it remains a desirable upmarket SUV that can still make others think you’ve gone up in the world.


Body Style: SUV           Seats: 5                MRP from £27,200 - £37,545 


Did you know? The oh-so-Germanic Audi Q3 is actually built by Volkswagen Group brand partner Seat, at its factory in Barcelona.

Verdict:★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7.2/10)

Audi sells a lot of Q3 and, even six years after launch, it’s not hard to see why. It remains a stylish, upmarket machine packing plenty of the kudos from the larger Q5 and Q7: some still find it hard to tell one apart from the other. It’s been around a few years now and is starting to fall off the pace in some areas, but it remains competitive enough in others to still warrant a place on your consideration list. Choose engine and spec wisely, and you’ve a machine that will mature rather than age badly.
