Accessibility & Motability

Usability for people with disability or their carers

Motability - Access

The Audi Q3’s doors open to 62 degrees, which is not a particularly wide angle and could mean they get in the way as you get in and out. For comparison, the figure for the Toyota C-HR is 61 degrees while the Mazda CX-30 and Seat Ateca both open to a more accessible 66 degrees.

The height-adjustable driver’s seat sits a minimum of 650mm from the ground, and 720mm when it’s fully raised, so there’s a good range of adjustment to help you find a suitable position. You can slide the seat back a long way to help with access.

Motability - Ease of use and options

An automatic gearbox is available as an option or comes as standard across the Q3 engine range. We reckon the 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol or 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel should have more than enough pace for most people (in both cases you need to specify an automatic ’box if you want one).

The standard central touchscreen infotainment system looks slick, but is fiddlier to use on the move than BMW’s iDrive set-up, although you get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can mirror your smartphone on it if you wish.

Even entry-level cars have dual-zone climate control and rear parking sensors, plus a version of the Audi Virtual Cockpit display. We’d recommend considering the Comfort and Sound Pack, which adds front parking sensors.
