Despite its humble external dimensions, the Q3 maintains the same interior comfort you would find in its larger siblings. Both front passenger seats are large and comfortable. The driver maintains a great field of view, a direct effect of the raised ride height.

Rear seat comfort is also admirable. Even for my 1.78m frame, legroom wasn’t an issue. There was also a generous amount of air between my head and the roof. However it must be said that while the Q3 does come with 3 rear seatbelts, the centre seat’s legroom is compromised by the transmission tunnel and would probably only be comfortable for a child.


The Drive

Both the base model 170bhp and the more powerful 211bhp Q3 share the same 2.0-litre TFSI lump but in different states of tune.

Mash the pedal on this 211bhp and you immediately feel the full force of its 300Nm of torque at just 1800rpm. This propels the mini-SUV from a standstill to three figure speeds in no more than 7 seconds. Not too shabby for something that tips the scales at 1.5 tons.

This early torque delivery means this SUV hardly feels out of breath as you mash the throttle for overtakes on the expressway with power available on tap throughout most of the rev range. Turbo-lag is nearly non-existent and only the most astute among you would detect it. This motor is always ready and willing to pull all the way to redline without missing a beat.

Equipped with the extremely smooth shifting 7-speed wet clutch gearbox as found in its lesser brethren, we found this gearbox perfectly matched to its brilliant engine. Gear ratios are evenly spaced out to exploit the broad torque band available.
