The most affordable way to get into an Audi SUV is the compact-sized Q3. First introduced to our shores 5 years ago, this all-new version arrives with greater visual presence, a snappier engine and more space. The first generationQ3 wasn’t bad but by the time it arrived in the U.S. it was already a little stale, having been sitting on European shelves for a while. But this 2nd generation model hits its stride by addressing previous issues. It now resembles a baby Q5, the 2.0-liter turbo packs more of a punch and its larger dimensions simply make it more usable.
