Review

The Q3 looks like a rather compelling proposition. It’s immensely practical, features a high-tech interior and is decent to drive. However, with the predicted best selling engine feeling a little rough around the edges, the diesel engine currently hamstrung by a vague manual gearbox and a ride that can't quite match the Volvo XC40, the Q3 isn't quite a class leader. Yet.

Trim: Sport

Entry-level Sport trim is very well equipped coming with 18in alloys, LED front and rear lights, MMI Navigation plus, Virtual Cockpit, dual-zone climate control, a power-operated tailgate, cruise control and automatic emergency braking.

Engine: 40 TDI Quattro

We have yet to try out this 187bhp version of Audi's 2.0-litre diesel engine. It's available exclusively with four-wheel drive.
