2020 Audi Q3
Ratings & Reliability
The redesigned Q3 is a pleasant SUV that packs luxury and practicality into a small package. A turbocharged 228-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission makes for lively, predictable acceleration and smooth shifts, but the engine can sound raspy. Handling is sharp and predictable, and the ride skews firm. All-wheel drive is standard. The Q3's 23 mpg overall fuel economy is par for the class, but we like that this SUV doesn't require premium gas like some competitors. An uncluttered dashboard features well-labeled buttons and an easy-to-use touch screen. Fit and finish is very good, the front seats are supportive, and the roomy rear seat can slide forward to make more space for cargo. Unfortunately, thick pillars at the rear hinder visibility, and BSW is optional.
