For All engines in the Audi Q3 range provide smooth, strong performance. The ride is comfortable and the handling secure, while the cabin is smartly trimmed and feels like it's built to last. Running costs make encouraging reading, too.
Against Some extras are on the pricey side and the large number of models in the Audi line up has had a negative effect on the Q3's resale values.

Underneath that rather mundane styling lies a decent car. All engines in the Audi Q3 range are strong and refined, the ride is comfortable and the upmarket cabin is hard to fault.

Target Price team says:
There's a range of petrol and diesel engines available for the Audi Q3 and, as with most SUVs, we'd recommend picking one of the diesels. The 138bhp 2.0-litre diesel with front-wheel drive and a manual gearbox is the most efficient Q3; it just happens to be one of the cheapest to buy, too.
There's also a 175bhp 2.0-litre diesel, but the price will put off most people.
Of the petrols, we'd recommend the 148bhp 1.4. It's fast and flexible enough that it renders the more expensive 2.0-litre units virtually pointless.
We'd go for SE trim, which provides lots of luxury kit for a reasonable price. There are plenty of optional extras you can add, too, but beware because some of them are eye-wateringly expensive.
