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 not stellar but at least it takes regular. 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. Oddly, a heated steering wheel is not available. Thick pillars at the rear hinder visibility, but blind spot warning is optional.
