The Parkers Verdict

The Audi Q3 is getting on a bit now, but it still looks fairly fresh and modern, and sells in large numbers. Choose a 150hp engine – be it 1.4 TFSI or 2.0 TDI and you’ll get a car that’s a good all-rounder if you have a small family, that won’t cost too much to run day-to-day.

It's also good to drive and spend time in. It's not as high-riding as the Q5, and feels very car-like as a consequence. Inside, it's tight in the rear, but up-front, it's roomy and has that desirable high seating position. A sound choice, with strong residuals, and a premium image.

The Audi Q3 is getting on a bit now, but it still looks fresh and modern, and sells in large numbers. The 2.0-litre TDI with 150hp is still the default engine choice, which is good because it's economical punchy and reasonably refined.
