Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The T-Roc may be among the most significant of many new Volkswagen models, even if it won’t be sold in the United States in the foreseeable future. It’s a new crossover that is roughly the same size as the Golf and is based on the same MQB architecture. For now, at least, the Golf will remain the mainstay of the brand’s lineup, but those within the company who are concerned with sales-growth rates are far more interested in the crossover-SUV segment nearly everywhere on the globe.

Pros
Golf-like driving dynamics,
decent packaging,
adventurous design (for VW).

Cons
Only average interior quality,
firm ride,
we likely won’t get it.

The T-Roc is a small family car that blends the high driving position and big boot of an SUV with the economical engines from a conventional small car. It is quite expensive, however…

Pros
More comfortable than alternatives
Well equipped as standard
Decent range of engines

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Alternatives are cheaper
Back seats could be more spacious

By:

The Volkswagen T-Roc looks good, drives well and offers plenty of space, but it's pricey and some rivals have a nicer interior.

Pros
Easy to personalise
Good to drive
Stylish

Cons
Expensive
Interior quality issues
Rivals offer better value

By:

Buying or leasing a subcompact premium crossover is a great way for you to own a top-tier luxury-branded vehicle without paying much money. But while these vehicles feature attractive starting prices, the price adds up quickly once you start tacking on expected luxury-oriented features such as leather seating or a sunroof. Luckily, somebody must have forgotten to tell Audi because the 2018 Q3 is feature-rich and much less expensive than its rivals.

Pros
Lots of features at a price lower than rivals
Interior is lined with high-quality materials
Rides comfortably on rough roads
Cabin is hushed at highway speeds

Cons
Handling and acceleration lag behind class rivals
Backseat is a tight fit for adults
Ranks at the back of the pack for fuel economy
Infotainment controller is awkwardly placed, and no USB interface

By:

The 2018 Audi Q3 ranked #6 in Luxury Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Audi Q3 has a score of 7.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Comfortable ride quality
Upscale cabin

Cons
Underpowered on the highway
Few standard features

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Audi Q3 offers a fun-to-drive alternative to the entry compact luxury car, but with more utility. Versus its rivals, it delivers more ride comfort and interior refinement, but less fuel efficiency.

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

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