2021 Audi Q3

Pros: Improved cabin room, many high-tech features; handsome interior trimmings

Cons: Complicated infotainment controls; lack of economy front-drive model

CG Says: The 2021 Audi Q3 drops its topline Prestige model, but option packages can make up for the loss. The base Premium model gains standard lane-departure warning, power seats, and steering-wheel shift paddles. The previous optional S line exterior trim is now standard. The Q3 is a premium subcompact crossover SUV that was redesigned for 2019. The sole power train is a 228-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed auto with standard all-wheel drive. Available features include collision warning and mitigation, blind-spot alert, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, topview camera, and park assist. The current-generation Q3 offers more room, power, and equipment than the previous Q3, making it a strong contender in the competitive premium subcompact crossover segment.
