About the Audi Q3

Engineered with a robust powertrain, enhanced exterior styling, and an upscale premium cabin that's more functional than ever before - the Audi Q3 represents the pinnacle of the compact luxury SUV segment. Striking athletic styling mirrors the Audi SUV design language first introduced on the larger Q8. Now 3.8 inches wider and 1.5 inches taller than the outgoing model, the Q3 now includes expanded passenger and cargo space for improved versatility. Connectivity remains a key strength of the Q3 and is represented by an innovative 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster along with a standard 8.8-inch MMI® touch response display. Examples of class-exclusive standard equipment found on the Q3 are a panoramic sunroof and heated leather front seating surfaces. For enhanced confidence behind the wheel, you can enjoy groundbreaking driver-assistive safety innovations such as standard Audi pre sense® basic. Even the most established contenders in the compact luxury SUV segment will have a difficult time competing with the Audi Q3.

What the Critics Say

"The outgoing Q3 stood tall among the growing roster of tiny luxury SUVs, and the redesigned model appears to build on the original's strengths. More space, additional safety features, and interior revisions all sound promising." - Consumer Reports

"Its tech is second to none in the segment, as well, borrowing heavily from Audi's more expensive side of the stable. I think it'll quickly rise to the top of a busy segment filled with newer vehicles, including the BMW X2 and Volvo XC40." - Roadshow by CNET

What's New for 2023

Although relatively minor, there are still a handful of important updates to the Audi Q3 for the 2023 model year that we'd like to highlight. Three new wheel designs are now available this year and Premium 40 variants are now able to be optioned with the Black Optic package. Additionally, the available wireless smartphone pad has been redesigned for better performance. Finally, all Q3 models now come standard with full LED headlights.

Audi Q3 Styling

Athletic Styling & Performance

Staying true to the Audi SUV design language, the instantly-recognizable Q3 now offers a look that's more vibrant and expressive than the prior generation. At the front, a wide Singleframe grille is accented on each side by dynamic LED headlights which feature a unique daytime running light signature. Its commanding stance comes as a result of expanded exterior dimensions. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Turbocharged/TFSI® engine that produces 184 horsepower and 228 lb-ft of torque. You'll also have the option to step up to the available 45 TFSI® 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, a significant increase over the prior generation. Iconic quattro® all-wheel drive and a standard eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission work in unison to give you greater agility and control across the entire spectrum of weather conditions. You'll also be able to customize your driving experience with Audi drive select which features five selectable drive modes including comfort, auto, dynamic, offroad, and individual.

Audi Q3 Interior

Sophisticated Interior & Technology

More spacious than the previous model, the premium interior of the Audi Q3 gives you room to help all of your passengers stretch out and get comfortable. An available Sport Interior package adds expressive orange Alcantara accents on the dash and door armrests for a personalized look. Give the interior a dose of athleticism with the optional Sport Interior package featuring S line® sport seats in Black or Rotor Gray leather with contrast stitching, steering wheel shift paddles, and Brushed Aluminum matte inlays. Now in its second generation, the optional Audi virtual cockpit features a 12.3-inch display that offers a stunning HD resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels. When optioned with MMI Navigation and Audi connect, the Q3 is capable of wireless Apple CarPlay® for greater convenience. Giving you lifelike 3D surround sound is the available 380-watt Bang & Olufsen® Premium 3D Sound System.

Audi Q3 Driver Assistance

Groundbreaking Driver-Assistance

A simple fact is that even the best drivers appreciate more confidence behind the wheel. This is precisely the reason why the Audi Q3 includes an impressive collection of newly standard and available driver assistance features. Standard Audi pre sense® front uses a camera to monitor the front of the vehicle and gives the driver both visual and acoustic warnings should it detect any danger. Audi pre sense® basic can intervene to help brace the vehicle for impact in the event of an inevitable collision. Other examples of available safety technologies include Audi side assist, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic assist, adaptive cruise control with stop & go, and parking system plus. An available top-view camera system relies on four wide-angle 360-degree cameras to give you a comprehensive look at your vehicle's surroundings.
