The Q3 earns our respect for its high-quality interior and smooth, quiet running. From inside, it’s easy to forget that this is an entry-level luxury vehicle. With the rear seat folded, cargo space maxes out at a modest 48 cubic feet, but that’s on par with other subcompact crossovers.
Every Q3 carries a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that supplies 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels.
Comes well equipped from the start with features like leather upholstery, heated power front seats, a panoramic sunroof, front and rear parking sensors, and a 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The exterior gets silver roof rails, LED running lights and taillights, and 18-inch wheels. The base Q3 is priced from $33,875, including a $975 destination charge.
