Review

The RS Q3 might be exceedingly fast in a straight line, but it just isn’t that much fun. Numb steering and a tendency to wash wide at the front count against it, while many will find its ride a bit too firm for their liking. For this money, the Porsche Macan S feels plusher and is more enjoyable to drive, even if it isn’t as fast.

Trim: RS Q8

There’s no such thing as a badly equipped RS Q3, with even this ‘entry-level’ model getting dual-zone climate control, heated front sports seats, ambient lighting, a 12.3in digital instrument cluster, a 10.1in infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 20in alloy wheels, a rear bench that slides and reclines, and keyless entry as standard.

Engine: RS Q3 TFSI Quattro
