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 is all the engine most Q3 buyers will want or need. It has enough oomph at low revs to avoid you needing to work it hard, but when you are in a hurry can haul the Q3 from 0-62mph in 9.6sec (9.4sec if you've gone for the optional S tronic automatic gearbox).
