The Audi Q3 is one of the best-value SUVs in the BBA range, and if there was a Versailles award for cars, this would be it! Compared to the old Q3, the new model has a more youthful look, and the new Q3 looks even better, with straight headlights on both sides giving it a more sporty look, known as the ‘little Q8’!
But as a member of the BBA camp, its bare car price is around 210,000, some people say that for this price you can buy a lot of better B-class cars, and the new Q3 has a smaller rear seat, and the steering wheel can be turned with one finger, so this car is suitable for a girl to drive! As to whether it is really suitable for girls to drive, don’t jump to conclusions just yet, let’s look at the configuration of the new Q3: the body dimensions are 4495/1848/1616mm and the wheelbase is 2680mm, it is positioned as a compact SUV, the body lines are smooth and look very round, but the boot capacity is currently the shortcoming of the Q3.
The original tyres on the new Q3 are Goodyear F1 tyres, which have a very good grip. The Q3 is solid, stable and easy to drive. The interior design of the new Q3 is also very trendy, leaning towards digital technology, and the centre console design is also very high quality, with the full LCD dashboard being very upscale.
Compared to the Q5, the new Q3’s rear space is not particularly good, the middle of the rear row is not really reasonable, if five people are seated at once it is indeed a bit crowded, a family of four Audi Q3 space is still more than enough. The boot isn’t huge but it’s more than enough for everyday travel. Although the Q3 has a very high price/performance ratio, and its appearance is calm and sporty without being greasy, it is the gear knob that is most criticized, which has the look and feel of a 90s Pusan. Many people are considering buying a BBA, but when they see the gear knob, they think it’s too low, so they rule out the Q3 and go buy a Mercedes-Benz BMW.
The other point is the key, the Q3’s key and gear knob are the same, it looks relatively cheap, excluding these two points, over all the other aspects are still very good. As a family compact SUV the new Q3 is still relatively powerful, and the start is obviously faster, any car has flaws, and the Q3 is no exception. When buying a car, comfort, safety and affordability are the first things to consider, and which car is the best value for money after a comprehensive comparison is the one you should choose!
