Audi Q3 - best crossovers and small SUVs
The latest Audi Q3 has bags of style, impressive tech and makes for a great all-round SUV.
Behind the wheel the Q3 is among the best in the small SUV class to drive. Ride comfort has been much improved in the latest car and while it may not be as fun to drive as a BMW X1, the Q3 offers great refinement and there’s a good range of petrol and diesel engines.
The Q3’s cabin is typically sophisticated and has an upmarket feel with Audi’s exemplary Virtual Cockpit display and 12.25 inch central infotainment screen contributing to an impressive level of technology.
There’s more room in this Q3 than the old one, in fact, it's 530-litre boot comfortably beats the Volvo XC40's 432 litres and BMW X1's 505 litres. Then again, the Q3 doesn’t come cheap, and the optional extras you’ll want will quickly bump the list price up.
