Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

In the Q3 Sportback, Audi introduces a racier version of its newest upcoming Q3 small SUV, and it's bound to attract plenty of admirers since it gives up very little in the way of space.

Pros
Like a perfectly scaled-down Audi Q8
Great looks inside and out
Premium cabin with new levels of detail and trim work
Fun to drive (both engines)
45 TFSI feels like a proper hot hatch in the corners
Good ride comfort with adaptive dampers
Good safety and tech

Cons
There's a big gap in performance between the 35–45 TFSI
Expect a similar-size gap in prices, too

The Audi Q3 Sportback is a more stylish alternative to your average boxy SUV, although others are more fun to drive and have more room for passengers.

Pros
Big boot
Stylish looks
Plenty of standard equipment

Cons
Cramped back seats
Alternatives are more fun to drive
Automatic gearbox is a bit sluggish

The 2020 Audi Q3 blends practicality, quality, and fun in a chunky but city-friendly package.

Pros
Lots of standard tech…
Punchy turbo engine
Hot hatchback handling
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
…But best features cost a lot more
Lackluster fuel economy
Gets expensive fast

Cupra’s first standalone model is a handsome crossover with decent road manners and plenty of space

Pros
Sharp looks,
handles well for a crossover,
plenty of space and equipment

Cons
Fiddly touch-sensitive heater almost as annoying as having to explain the badge to your mates

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Strong range of engine options
Great interior style and quality
Genuinely good fun to drive for an SUV

Cons
Fairly limited personalisation options
There are more practical options
Some infotainment frustrations

By:

The Cupra Formentor doesn't feel as playful as the closely related Volkswagen T-Roc R, but it’s every bit as fast in its similarly priced, range-topping form, plus it handles with composure and has a much nicer interior. In addition, cheaper, less powerful versions of the Formentor offer the same sporty looks as the flagship model – something that isn’t the case with lesser T-Rocs. Just bear in mind that you can have our 2021 Sports SUV of the Year, the Ford Puma ST, for not much more than the cheapest Formentor.

Pros
Well equipped
Surefooted and grippy handling
Smart interior

Cons
TSI 310 isn’t as much fun as the very best sports SUVs
Slightly hesitant automatic gearbox
Fiddly controls
