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.
