    Expert Rating

    3.1 (Good)
    19 City / 27 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2019 Audi Q3 OVERVIEW

    The all-new 2019 Audi Q3 features a new powertrain and Audi's latest styling theme that was introduced on the Audi Q8. The Q3 is also taller, wider, and longer than the previous generation, and, in typical Audi fashion, features a striking interior with more technology than ever before.

    What's New for 2019

    The 2019 Audi Q3 is the second generation for the compact luxury crossover. It holds on to very little of its past, as nearly every aspect has been updated. Visually, it adds a new front end, grille, headlights, and bumper, more chrome, and a new interior design.

    Choosing Your Audi Q3

    There's just one powertrain offering and all-wheel drive is standard. The enhanced 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine develops 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which is an increase of 28 hp and 51 lb-ft over last year’s model. The standard automatic transmission now features eight gears, up from six. The Q3 gets an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 22 combined – each one point less than before.

    The reduction in efficiency can partly be attributed to the vehicle's larger size. It's 1.8 inches taller, about an inch wider, 3.8 inches longer, and also several hundred pounds heavier. As expected, there's more interior space and the rear seats fold, slide, and recline for an adaptive layout.

    On the inside, standard equipment includes an 8.8-inch infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a moonroof, and heated and leather seats.

    The Audi Q3 is available in three trim levels:


    The base Q3 Premium starts at $35,695 (all prices include the $995 destination fee). It features 18-inch wheels, high-gloss aluminum roof rails and window trim, full LED exterior lighting with dynamic turn signals, heated exterior mirrors, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.

    Technology featured inside includes a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, an 8.8-inch infotainment screen, dual-zone climate control, an eight-way power driver’s seat, heated seats, and a moonroof.

    The Convenience package ($1,600) adds proximity entry, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, parking sensors, satellite radio, a Homelink garage door opener, and an alarm system.

    The Q3 Premium is also available in an S line exterior design for a starting price of $36,995. The S line adds unique badging, front and rear bumpers, side sills, and paint, as well as 19-inch wheels.

    Premium Plus

    The Q3 Premium Plus begins at $38,795 and adds unique signature daytime running lights, interior ambient lighting, and the features from the Convenience Package.

    The mid-level trim also opens the door to a 15-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system for $850 and the Driver assistance package for $800, which brings full-speed adaptive cruise control. The Navigation package ($2,000) includes a navigation system, an upgraded 10.1-inch touchscreen, a 12.-inch gauge cluster display, and Audi’s connect telecommunication services.

    The Premium Plus S line costs $40,095 and opens the door to 20-inch wheels ($800) and a Sport Interior package ($500). The latter includes sport seats, paddle shifters, and brushed aluminum trim. For $150 more, the Orange Alcantara interior package can be selected to add colorful interior accents.


    The Q3 Prestige trim is only available in S line form and starts at $43,895. The Prestige adds new features like a surround-view camera system, power folding mirrors with automatic dimming for the driver, adaptive cruise control, the Bang and Olufsen audio system, and the contents of the Navigation package.

    The 20-inch wheels, Sport Interior package, and Orange Alcantara interior package are still available for the same prices as on the Premium Plus.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The 2019 Audi Q3 is better equipped for today’s consumer preferences by being larger, more stylish, and packed with a lot of technology. We would choose the Premium Plus trim and add the Navigation package for the improved connectivity and the impressively large infotainment and digital gauge displays.
