The Audi Q3 is a five-seat compact crossover that’s more compact than the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, or Mazda CX-3. At 172.6 inches, the Q3 is only a foot longer than a Mini Cooper hatchback. The Fiat 500X is a rival, too.
It might be compact, perky and maybe even a bit stubby, but its styling aspires to the larger Audi Q5 that is 10 inches longer. The 2017 Audi Q3 is in the third year of its generation. There are no significant changes for the 2017 Q3 lineup, though there are some trim-level revisions.
Its engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Q3 handles well but its priority is ride and comfort, more than crisp cornering. For a compact, its fuel mileage is unimpressive, with an EPA-estimated 20/29 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined.
Quattro all-wheel drive is available, or front-wheel drive. Fuel economy ratings are the same.
The Q3 rates top crash-test scores from the IIHS. A rearview camera and parking sensors are standard, while options include blind spot monitor and automatic park assist.
