Audi Q3 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 Premium Plus 4-door SUV AWD Automatic
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
A tidy, compact crossover, the Q3 competes with the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. Overall, it manages to deliver a premium driving experience similar to the Q5 but in a 10-inch-shorter package. The energetic 200-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine is mated to a conventional six-speed automatic transmission and returned 22 mpg overall in our tests. This is a quiet SUV with a firm, comfortable ride and responsive handling. The cabin is a bit simplistic-looking, but it gives a sense of quality. Demerits include the tight quarters and cramped driving position. The controls are complicated at first, but they prove logical with some familiarity. Front- and all-wheel drive are available.
