Audi has finally launched the latest generation car in India and there’s no shying away from the fact that ‘The Baby Q’ is a little late to the party. Moreover, it faces tough competition in the segment from the Mercedes Benz GLA, BMW X1 and the Volvo XC40.
Audi Q3 Pros
- Evolved sporty styling, matched with solid build quality
- Increased cabin space, practicality and boot capacity (530-litres)
- Incredibly fun-to-drive 2.0L turbo-petrol with a quick 7-speed dual-clutch automatic
- Quattro all-wheel-drive provides loads of grip & will help you get out of tricky situations (sand, mud etc.)
- Good road manners with sorted ride quality
- Well-equipped (panoramic sunroof, powered front seats, dual-zone climate control, virtual cockpit & more)
- 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating and equipment
Audi Q3 Cons
- Efficient & punchy 2.0 turbo-diesel is no longer available. Heavy users will miss its low running costs
- Same 187 horses as the Kodiaq & Tiguan. We would’ve preferred a higher state of tune on a more expensive Audi
- Pricey! The Skoda Kodiaq and VW Tiguan are ~10-15 lakhs cheaper on-road
- Just two variants. No cheaper FWD entry-level variant available. Period
- Should’ve gotten adaptive dampers, at least on the top-end ‘Technology’ variant
- Cabin is best suited for 4 adults, not 5
- Missing features like a 360-degree camera, ventilated seats, driving assist tech, auto-hold, connected car gizmos etc.
