With consumers increasingly preferring SUVs, the Audi Q3 plays a vital role for the automaker. Its job is to attract first-time buyers and turn them into Audi loyalists. A small crossover equipped with a turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive, the Q3 offers classic Audi design cues, enough interior space for four adults, and a small but useful cargo area. Audi also crafts the standard equipment list to include appealing features like leather seats, three-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic glass sunroof, and desirable infotainment and driving assistance technologies. Rewarding to drive, ready to battle a blizzard, and roomy enough to haul home thrift-store finds, the Q3 is one of the most affordable pathways to Audi ownership.
