The Audi Q3 is a luxury small SUV that has recently been given a comprehensive update, and offers a stylish alternative to its German rivals.
The first Q3 was launched in 2011, with this all-new generation arriving in Australia last year as a single variant. The Q3 line-up is slowly expanding, and will soon include high-performance models and swoopy coupe fastback bodystyles.
Starting at just below $50,000, the Q3 range has two different four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines on offer.
If you have young children then yes, the Audi Q3 would be suitable for a family. However, teenagers will quickly outgrow the rear seats, and there is no third-row option available for the Q3.
When is the new Audi Q3 release date?
The latest generation Q3 was released in the later half of 2019, as a single variant. There are now 35TFSI and 40TFSI models available in Australia.
Are Audi Q3s reliable?
The Audi Q3 was ranked below average for reliability and build quality by an independent testing outlet in the UK. It was reported that 6.3 percent of Audi Q3 buyers reported a fault within the first year of ownership.
Can an Audi Q3 tow a horse trailer?
Technically, yes the Audi Q3 can tow a horse trailer with its maximum braked towing capacity of 1800kg. However, with an adult horse weighing between 380kg to 1000kg depending on breed, the Q3 won’t be up to the task of towing a horse trailer, horse, and associated gear.
