2017 Audi Q3 OVERVIEW

Audi's long-running Q3 proves that even the smallest crossovers can deliver a big dose of luxury and refinement. It remains a compelling lifestyle vehicle for active couples and singles who want something above the mass market.

What's New for 2017

An entry-level Premium trim has been added to the lineup. The mid-range Premium Plus gains power-folding mirrors and a power liftgate.

Choosing Your Audi Q3

The Q3 is a tidy package with the footprint of a compact passenger car. With the rear seat folded, you get 48 cubic feet of cargo space, which is typical for the smallest class of crossovers. Every Q3 is powered by turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower, matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is available across the board in place of the standard front-drive setup.

The Q3 now comes in three well-equipped trim levels:


Offers a leather interior with 12-way power front seats, a panoramic sunroof, front and rear parking sensors, automatic wipers, and a 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The Premium rolls on 18-inch wheels. To this you can add a navigation system (with upgraded infotainment interface), heated front seats, and keyless ignition.

Premium Plus

Adds power-folding side mirrors, a power liftgate, and aluminum interior trim. Heated seats and keyless ignition are also standard. The available Technology package furnishes navigation, blind spot monitoring, and a color driver information display. There's also a Sport package with selectable driving modes, front sport seats, and a three-spoke steering wheels with shift paddles. 19-inch wheels are a standalone option.


/,P>Gets the Technology package and 19-inch wheels as standard, plus a 14-speaker Bose sound system, stainless steel sill plates, and sporty "s-line" exterior trim. The Sport package remains optional.

Individual options for the Premium and Prestige Plus are limited to wood interior trim and a no-cost black headliner.

CarsDirect Tip

The new Premium model is a bargain considering that leather seats and a panoramic sunroof are standard. We see no compelling reason to upgrade unless you must have the Sport package.
