Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Audi has simplified the Q3 lineup for 2021 by dropping the top-flight Prestige trim level and splitting its features into available Technology or Convenience packages on the remaining Premium and Premium Plus trims. The entry-level Premium model now comes standard with power-adjustable front seats, lane-departure warning, and steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles. The Convenience package now includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror with an integrated compass, heated power-folding exterior mirrors, and LED interior lighting.

Pros
Sharp styling,
plentiful tech features,
spunky driving demeanor.

Cons
Tight rear quarters,
noticeable turbo lag,
a few cheap interior materials.

The 2021 Audi Q3 comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Top Prestige trim has been replaced by option packages for supporting trim levels.Some previously optional features are now standard.

The Q4 e-tron and Q4 e-tron Sportback are all-new models for 2022. They join the larger e-tron SUVs and the racy e-tron GT sedan in Audi's fast-growing electric-vehicle lineup. With a base price of $44,995, the Q4 e-tron is actually cheaper to start than the gasoline-powered Q5 SUV. We recommend the more powerful 295-hp 50 model, but those who prefer a coupe-like look to their SUV can opt for the swoopier Sportback model, which is offered with the same dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain setup.
