Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

There’s generous headroom in the front of the Audi Q3 Sportback and the seats slide back far enough to allow even those with particularly long legs to get comfortable. The interior is wide enough that you won’t be rubbing shoulders with your front passenger, although it’s worth noting that the armrest is a bit narrow, so there might be some elbow bashing. 

The Q3 Sportback has reclining rear seats that allow passengers to kick back and relax (the BMW X2 and Range Rover Evoque don't have these). Unfortunately, the sloping roofline means that anyone approaching six feet tall will find their heads brushing the roof lining – and that’s without the optional panoramic sunroof fitted. The Evoque has a little less leg room in the back, but has more headroom.
