Used Audi Q3 2018 - present review

Alternatives

Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi Q3 estate?

The Volvo XC40 has won the family SUV category numerous times at the What Car? Awards because it is very practical, relaxing to drive and very safe. It also, strangely, has a nicer interior than the Q3’s, which is a bit of a win for a Volvo.

Perhaps you don’t mind having an SUV without the four rings of Audi on its nose. If that’s you, try a Volkswagen Tiguan. Essentially, it’s the same vehicle under the skin, with the same engines, gearbox choices and, often, similar technology inside. Aside from having a slightly bland dashboard, the quality of the plastics isn’t much different to the Q3.

Verdict

A vast improvement on the first-generation Q3, but this current version isn’t quite a match for more accomplished rivals

  • High-quality interior
  • Big boot
  • Impressive interior space
  • Firmer ride than closest rival
  • Manual gearbox a bit vague
  • Engines a little rough around the edges
