Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Audi RS Q3 Sportback is a fast SUV with a distinctive five-cylinder petrol engine and a lovely interior. The lower, lighter hatchback RS 3 will be even more fun to drive, mind you.A couple of things help the Audi RS Q3 Sportback stand out amongst performance SUVs – its sharp looks and that characterful five-cylinder engine. It just sounds better than the rest.

This latest addition to Audi Sport’s growing stable of RS models is also one part of a dual-pronged attack on the small performance SUV market. While the RS Q3 should appease those wanting a little extra headroom for rear passengers, the Sportback earns extra style points with its sloping rear end. The Sportback delivers the kind of assured handling we associate with the RS range, letting you make rapid point-to-point progress while remaining predictable at all times, if lacking in true driver engagement. The progressive steering rack doesn’t give much sense of what the front tyres are doing through corners, and there’s little playfulness to be found from the rear end when pushed.
On the smoothest roads and the optional adaptive dampers set to their most comfortable, the Sportback is just about relaxed enough, but still jostles on rougher surfaces. Dynamic mode is a lot more brittle, picking up even the smallest of abrasions. Ride refinement is merely average for the class, though our test drive didn’t provide an opportunity to see what effect smaller 20in alloy wheels would have on comfort.

Mercedes-Benz has given the GLC coupe a bevy of updates for the 2020 model year. The headlights, grille, and bumpers have been revised, and some new color and wheel options are available. Within the cabin, a larger touchscreen has been added, and it governs Mercedes-Benz's new infotainment system. Under the hood, there's a new turbocharged engine that provides 14 more horses than the previous powerplant. Also, the list of available driver-assistance features has been expanded.

Pros
Smooth handling, rakish exterior design, extensive range of standard equipment.

Cons
Less cargo space than competitors, curved roofline diminishes second-row headroom, fuel economy trails that of some rivals.
