Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

he Audi Q3 is no longer the smallest Audi SUV – that mantle was taken by the dinky Q2 in 2016 – but that shouldn't put you off what is still a practical, well-built and desirable crossover.

On sale since 2011, the Q3 rivals cars like the BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA. Its premium feel runs more than skin deep, as the compact Audi 4x4 offers an engaging, fun driving experience and genuine refinement thanks to solid design and engineering. Impeccable Audi build quality is reflected in a cabin that has a truly premium feel, too.

With a full range of safety kit and the desirable ‘four rings’ badge on its nose, the Audi Q3 is unsurprisingly in strong demand. The downsides? This quality doesn’t come cheap – especially if you go to town on the options – and despite its looks, the Q3 isn’t all that capable off-road.

Pros
Premium badge, classy interior, quattro 4WD option

Cons
Conservative styling, pricy extras, dated interior

When it comes to luxurious interior design and a smooth ride, the 2017 Audi Q3 delivers. You'll also like how this baby Audi's sharp styling mimics that of the more expensive Q5. But read more to learn how the veteran Q3 stacks against newer rival crossovers.

For 2017, the Audi Q3 has a new Premium base trim level.

As the smaller sibling to Audi's popular Q5 compact crossover, the 2017 Audi Q3 has the qualities you'd hope to get from any Audi. You'll be quite comfortable driving it, and the cabin is quiet and crafted in high-quality materials. You get plenty of features for your money, too, at least relative to the more expensive Q5. But whether the Q3 is the best subcompact luxury crossover for you might depend on a few other factors.

Pros
Rides comfortably on rough roads
Quiet at highway speeds
High-quality materials inside the cabin
Cargo capacity beats some competitors
Plenty of available features.

Cons
Not the best option in the class for dynamic performance
Ranks at the back of the pack for fuel economy
Tight rear seating for adults
Less-than-ideal infotainment control placement.

The 2017 Audi Q3 isn't the most space-efficient or fuel-efficient in its class, but it gives compact luxury shoppers the ride comfort, easy maneuverability, and flexible cabin they seek.

The Audi Q3 is functionally attractive, but not as beautiful as some of the brand's larger models.

The 2017 Q3 is heavier than it should be, but it's remarkably maneuverable and nimble.

A smooth ride and good seats (especially the optional sport seats) help forgive the otherwise very tight, somewhat stark interior.

The 2017 Audi Q3 earns great crash-test ratings from the IIHS, but it's lacking front crash prevention.

Take it easy on the options; we think the Q3 is the best value in base all-wheel-drive form.

With highway ratings that don't reach 30 mpg on the highway, the Audi Q3 has unremarkable fuel economy.

Pros
Smart packaging for tight spaces
Great turbocharged engine
Great interface, maps
Excellent ride quality
Pert handling

Cons
Tight rear seat
More a hatchback than an SUV
Lackluster gas mileage
No manual here

With its rugged body-on-frame construction, heavy duty hardware and new-age technology that enable it to crawl over obstacles, the Prado is not for pretenders.
To be fair, the Prado is far from rudimentary. It feels solid on the road at highway speeds and around town, although you quickly learn to take roundabouts a little more gingerly because of the tendency for big, tall and heavy 4WDs like this to lean in corners.
The new engine is a worthwhile freshen-up for the Prado but doesn't suddenly transform the vehicle.

Likes
New diesel engine is more refined
Long range due to better economy and 150L tanks
Genuine off-road ability

Dislikes
Towing capacity unchanged at 2500kg
The price is high, especially on top end models
Interior design starting to look a little dated

Cast an eye over the SUV market and you’ll see very few truly off-road capable vehicles. One of them is the Toyota LandCruiser Prado, and here we’ve got the most capable Prado of all, the top-shelf Kakadu.The LandCruiser Prado Kakadu is a very good off-the-shelf off-roader, with its blend of both tradi-tional and modern off-road equipment. With decent all-terrain or mud-terrain tyres (which nearly all standard SUVs would need) we reckon the Kakadu could go just about anywhere.

Likes
Rear axle articulation
KDSS system
Crawl control

Dislikes
Lack of power and torque
Over-bonnet vision
No height-adjustable front suspension
