Review

The Audi Q3 is practical, has plenty of tech and is decent to drive. However, the Range Rover Evoque and Volvo XC40 are both classier inside, more comfortable and, ultimately, are better all-rounders.

get the best price

S line is worth a look, especially if you're taken by its more aggressive styling. It also adds larger 19in wheels and privacy glass, along with ambient interior lighting. Just remember that you also get sports suspension that doesn't do ride comfort any favours.

This 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine offers similar outright performance to the cheaper 35 TFSI petrol but with more low-rev oomph. If you do lots of miles of plan to tow, it's worth a look.
