Audi Q2 vs Audi Q3: practicality
These desirable SUVs both have plenty of strengths, but which is right for you: the cheaper Q2 or the larger Q3?...
Space and practicality
Front space, rear space, seating flexibility, boot
You also get quite a few useful cubbies in the front of each car, including two cupholders between the seats and door bins that are spacious enough to hold a one-litre bottle of water.
More obvious differences emerge when you move to the rear seats, with the Q2 having enough space for a couple of six-footers, but the Q3 giving them significantly more space to stretch out. In addition, the Q3's rear bench is wider, so it's more comfortable for three people.
The Q3's bigger proportions are also felt in the boot, where there's room for seven carry-on suitcases, compared with the six you'll get in the Q2. And while the Q2's rear seats fold down in a 60/40 split, the Q3 gives you more options for enhancing luggage space; its seats split and fold 40/20/40, plus they can be slid forward to prioritise rear leg room or boot space depending on your needs.
