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.

The redesigned Q3 is a pleasant SUV that packs luxury and practicality into a small package. Unlike the previous generation, the new touchscreen infotainment system is easier to use and the car takes regular fuel. Power comes from a turbocharged 228-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. That powertrain supplies prompt acceleration but engine sound is a bit raspy. All-wheel drive is standard. Handling is responsive and confidence inspiring. The ride is firm yet comfortable. Fit and finish is very good and the seats are supportive. The rear seat can slide fore-aft and is roomy. Advanced safety features include forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. Other driver assist features such as blind spot warning, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic warning are available.

Slotted below the Q5, the Q3 competes with the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. Overall it manages to deliver a similarly premium driving experience as in the Q5 but in a 10-inch shorter package. The energetic 200-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder is mated to a conventional six-speed automatic, and returned 22 mpg overall in our tests. This is a quiet SUV with a firm, comfortable ride and responsive handling. The cabin shows thoughtful attention to detail. Demerits include the tight quarters and controls that take some getting used to.
