2022 Audi Q3 Review : 7 Pros & 7 Cons

Audi has finally launched the latest generation car in India and there's no shying away from the fact that 'The Baby Q' is a little late to the party. Moreover, it faces tough competition in the segment from the Mercedes Benz GLA, BMW X1 and the Volvo XC40.

Audi Q3 Pros

  • Evolved sporty styling, matched with solid build quality
  • Increased cabin space, practicality and boot capacity (530-litres)
  • Incredibly fun-to-drive 2.0L turbo-petrol with a quick 7-speed dual-clutch automatic
  • Quattro all-wheel-drive provides loads of grip & will help you get out of tricky situations (sand, mud etc.)
  • Good road manners with sorted ride quality
  • Well-equipped (panoramic sunroof, powered front seats, dual-zone climate control, virtual cockpit & more)
  • 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating and equipment

Audi Q3 Cons

  • Efficient & punchy 2.0 turbo-diesel is no longer available. Heavy users will miss its low running costs
  • Same 187 horses as the Kodiaq & Tiguan. We would've preferred a higher state of tune on a more expensive Audi
  • Pricey! The Skoda Kodiaq and VW Tiguan are ~10-15 lakhs cheaper on-road
  • Just two variants. No cheaper FWD entry-level variant available. Period
  • Should’ve gotten adaptive dampers, at least on the top-end 'Technology' variant
  • Cabin is best suited for 4 adults, not 5
  • Missing features like a 360-degree camera, ventilated seats, driving assist tech, auto-hold, connected car gizmos etc.
