2020 Audi Q3 – Here next to the Audi Q3, which is not only Audi’s cheapest crossover but also of their brand-new entry into the very competitive subcompact crossover class. When we talked about it late last year, we were very impressed. However, there are a lot of new competitors coming into the market like the refreshed BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA. So, what we’re going to do is sample this latest 2020 version and see how it stacks up.
What You Have to Get From 2021 Audi Q3
Starting with the exterior styling, it’s certainly a very eye-catching vehicle, and it does come with the latest outie design language, including the single-frame grille, which first debuted in the Audi Q8. It’s got that new shape as well as the lines that run vertically down through it. There are a few various versions of the fascia you can get. Most of the models are going to come with the S-line package. And when you choose that that’s going to change this lower fascia area to be a little bit more aggressive and a little bit sporty.
As far as your headlights, these are going to be the full-LED setup, which is standard on all the base models. And of course, it does have the latest outie design. Now stooping down here to see the wheels, we have the best-looking bike. This is the 20-inch alloy with this beautiful contrast design. We think it’s eye-catching.
Now start with an 18-inch alloy on the base end, then you can upgrade those to 19-inch alloys as well. As far as your mirrors, you’re going to start with the heating on the base model. If you go up to Premium Plus, that’s where you’re going to add the blind spot monitoring system.
Then if you go for the prestige, you’ll further add the power-folding abilities as well as auto-dimming. Walking around to this cue threes rear design, we have to say it’s very impressed by it since a lot in this class can look a little stubby in the back end. This 2020 Audi Q3 has quite a bit of the q8 influence now as far as your feature. Set back there, we do have standard entirely LED taillights, and Audi has even thrown in the dynamic turn signals.
Down here at the bottom, the S-line is going to give you a sportier rear diffuser than the regular model. However, none of them will have exposed exhaust outlets. As far as your safety systems are concerned for this 2020 Audi Q3, we have to say we are very pleasantly surprised since out II does throw in more standard safety features on this 2020 Audi Q3.
In this car, you will have Ford emergency braking, with pedestrian detection and Auto high beams standard across the board. Now, if you go for the Premium Plus, that will add Lane Departure alert. If you go for the prestige, you will have optional adaptive cruise control.
Looking inside the cabin, as you can tell, it has a smaller version of the modern design language. That’s been rolling out across the entire out of the lineup. One of the things that impressed me about the 2020 Audi Q3 last year, and of course, excellent for this year is that you’ve got a lot of different interior combinations. Now just like every single outie, you will have standard real leather seating, and most Amato’s have the choice between black okapi brown or pearl beige colors.
But our model has the interior sport package, which gives you the additional choices of black or rotor gray with the contrast stitching. As far as the different interior trims, we are not going to go through all of them, but just be aware that you can get aluminum trim. You can get real wood trim, or if you want to get wild, you can add the orange Alcantara interior package, which we had last year.
There are two different configurations for the gauges. In 2020 Audi Q3, both of them are going to be digital. On the 2020 Audi Q3 premium and 2020 Audi Q3 Premium Plus, the standard version is going to be ten point two five inches. That’s what we have the full virtual cockpit, which is twelve point three inches and comes with the navigation. All that is optional on the Standard, Premium Plus, & prestige. This car is very close to the virtual cockpit so that you can scroll through a lot of different things. You just won’t have the map, and you can still change some basic stuff, but it more or less is the version.
Talk about interior storage were we happy to report there’s not any sacrifice in this 2020 Audi Q3 versus some of the bigger like Q5. Opening up the center console, this is quite deep. It is a little narrow, but you do have a felt lining down at the bottom. While we put it to the examination looks like it can nicely fit a large stack of coupons. When they’re four and a half up in front of that, we have two large cupholders, and then we have another huge storage area up there. This car has a wireless phone charging pad as well if you choose the Premium Plus or the prestige level.
2021 Audi Q3 Specification
It’s good when you know these being the cheapest crossover in the Audi line a lot of times with these luxury vehicles. The engine is going to be a 2-liter turbo 4-cylinder, 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and that gives 60 miles an hour. We have to say though when we first got in this light drew mentioned this doesn’t even feel all that much different with Q5. It does about that traditional 2-liter turbo it has around 20 more horsepower, but it doesn’t feel that much different.
The engine set up with this 2020 Audi Q3 is the other thing, that’s impressed. The smoothness of the transmission, especially when you’re just you know kind of cruising around at a more casual pace. You can barely feel anything whatsoever; it is an 8-speed automatic. The same one used in a lot of outie products, but it is different you know then the dual-clutch that’s used in not the Q5, for instance. Even going off of that, you do also have a standard Quattro all-wheel drive.
Let’s talk about fuel economy. This car has pretty terrible. We don’t even really know how else to phrase it. It’s rated at 19 City, 27 highways, 22 combined, which is two mpg worse than the Audi Q5. So, we are not understanding exactly why it’s that core of fuel economy, but it’s less than a lot most of the rivals. And it’s even less than its larger sibling.
A good thing, so the 2020 Audi Q3 premium model starts at thirty-four thousand seven-hundred bucks. If you want the s-line thirty-six thousand, premium plus thirty-seven eight, S-line is going to thirty-nine one and then if you go for the prestige with standard s line that’s forty-two thousand nine hundred dollars.
