Is there such a thing as the perfect small crossover? Probably not, although judging by this review, the 2019 Audi Q3 definitely comes close to ticking all the boxes that might concern you when it comes to this type of car.
For example, despite its sub-compact dimensions, you still get ample head and knee room in the back, where you’ll also find sliding and reclining seats. In fact, if your trip is short, you can even carry three adults in the back in relative comfort.
In the front, you have a very modern, high quality dashboard, where the only bits that don’t live up to expectations are the trim pieces on top of the door panels, which are rather hard according to Carwow. Other than that, it’s all properly premium and the ergonomics are solid throughout the cabin.
As for how it drives, well, one would expect it to not out-perform the BMW X1, which until this latest generation was the segment’s best-handling crossover. However, this reviewer feels as though the all-new Q3 is actually sharper and grips better than the X1, while at speed it feels stable and it’s overall, very relaxing to drive.
In a segment which also holds the previously-mentioned X1, the Volvo XC40 and the Mercedes GLA, Audi‘s solution to your crossover needs might just be best, especially since the current GLA is nearly out the door and the XC40 may not be as fun to drive as the new Q3.
