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

Punchy turbo engine
Hot hatchback handling
Standard all-wheel drive

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

The 2022 Taos is a completely new model in VW showrooms. Leading up to its official reveal, we learned about its engine specs and size details as well as its handsome design and available features.

Pros
Huge back seat for its subcompact designation,
generous cargo storage,
really good fuel-economy figures.

Cons
Acceleration isn't as spunky as some rivals,
some chintzy cabin materials,
maladroit dual-clutch automatic.

By:

Pros
Comfortable ride
Great gas mileage
Spacious, supportive seats
Excellent cargo capacity

Cons
Some cheap cabin materials
Unrefined transmissions

By:

Pros

Noticeable road and engine noise at highway speeds
