Audi Q3 buying guide

Audi offers the Q3 in a selection of trims with several engine choices under the bonnet. Read on for more information on this popular, premium family SUV.

What Audi Q3 trim levels are there?

Borrowing its name from Audi’s motto, the entry-level Technik trim focuses on interior technology. That means that standard features include sat-nav and DAB digital radio.

Sport is the next trim for Q3 models. While it’s a mid-range trim, you still get features including rear parking sensors, Bluetooth connectivity and alloy wheels.

S Line is a mainly visual upgrade that sees the Q3 equipped with a meaner-looking body kit and larger, sportier alloy wheels. You’ll also see premium touches including sports seats and climate control.

Black Edition is another mainly visual upgrade for the Q3. As the name suggests, this trim adds black-coloured details to the car including the door mirrors and grille surround. Equipment additions include a reversing camera and heated seats.

Also drawing inspiration from Audi’s motto is Vorsprung trim. This high-level trim includes a touch of everything such as a handful of choice exterior upgrades, along with part-leather heated seats, sat nav, climate control and a reversing camera.

Audi Q3 interior and technology

The Q3’s cabin is as premium as you’d expect from an Audi – that is to say, it feels great, with no creaks or rattles to worry about. Second-generation Q3s from 2019 onwards feature a minimal dashboard with a touchscreen infotainment system in the centre console, along with a digital dashboard replacing the dials in front of the driver.

Audi’s infotainment system includes all the typical functions you’d expect including DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity, along with optional sat-nav. You also have the ability to mirror your phone’s screen on the system via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

Four adults will have plenty of room to stretch out in the Q3 and five can fit in relative comfort for shorter journeys. Boot space is good for its size, able to fit three to four suitcases depending on how efficiently you pack.

Audi Q3 engine range explained

(Most popular!) Audi Q3 35 TFSI

The Q3 engine range kicks off with the 35 TFSI. This is a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine with 150hp. This version won’t be winning many races but, with a 0-62mph time of under 10 seconds, it won’t feel too sluggish.

Audi Q3 40 TFSI

Jumping up to the 40 TFSI model brings a welcome power boost to 190hp courtesy of a larger 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine. This variant is usually mated to the company’s quattro four-wheel-drive system for added all-weather grip.

Audi Q3 45 TFSI e

The 45 TFSI e’s name might lead you to expect a larger engine under the bonnet but, in fact, you get a smaller 1.4-litre turbo petrol. This is assisted, however, by an electric motor giving near hot-hatch levels of acceleration. This plug-in-hybrid package can travel for up to 31 miles on electricity alone, or return very high mpg figures when using both engine and motor together.

Audi Q3 35 TDI

If you regularly make longer journeys, you might want to consider the diesel engine range. Q3s with the 35 TDI engine get respectable acceleration from their 150hp 2.0-litre unit, and can return an average of 59mpg.

Audi Q3 40 TDI

Perhaps you want the mile-munching efficiency of a diesel but would still like some performance when you floor it. In this case, take a look at the Q3’s 40 TDI engine, which serves up a strong 200hp, hitting 62mph from rest in under eight seconds, while also being capable of around 50mpg on average.

Your Audi Q3 questions answered

The Q3 comes in two body styles. Standard models are a conventional five-door SUV, or you can choose from the upmarket Q3 Sportback coupe – this retains the five-door layout, but adds a swooping coupe roofline helping it look sportier.

The Q3 is around 4.5 metres long, putting it almost exactly in line with its key rivals, the Mercedes GLA and BMW X1. That length means Q3 models are around 20cm longer than family hatchbacks such as the VW Golf, but around 20cm shorter than saloons such as the Audi A4. Q3s are easily large enough for four adults but, if you regularly carry five or more, you might want to choose a larger car.

All engines in the Q3 range are smooth and efficient for their class. High-performance versions, in particular, offer rapid acceleration without too much of a fuel economy penalty.

Many Audi Q3s come with front-wheel drive, but some engines – usually the most powerful ones – come with four-wheel drive. Audis with four-wheel drive are signified by ‘quattro’ badges. Search for four-wheel-drive Audi Q3s here.

No, the Audi Q3 is a spacious five-seater. The only seven-seat Audi is the Q7. Most of the Q3’s rivals are five-seaters too, but check out the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Mercedes GLB if you need a third row.

Audi Q3s will be a little more expensive to maintain than less premium SUVs, but servicing and repair costs should be on a par with its closest rivals from BMW and Mercedes. Audi offers service plans to split annual maintenance into monthly payments.

Audi Q3s can be quite good in snow, although don’t expect Q3s with the quattro four-wheel-drive system to magically save you from thick snow or treacherous ice. Whether you choose a two- or four-wheel-drive Q3, consider fitting a set of all-season or winter tyres to ensure excellent cold-weather grip.

Most Audi Q3s will be reliable, although the sheer amount of tech on board has resulted in some owners reporting electrical glitches. These are often quickly fixed by a trip to a dealer. For extra peace of mind, you may wish to take out an extended warranty on any used car.
