Loading Comparison...


The Audi Q3 is a five-seat compact crossover that’s more compact than the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, or Mazda CX-3. At 172.6 inches, the Q3 is only a foot longer than a Mini Cooper hatchback. The Fiat 500X is a rival, too.

It might be compact, perky and maybe even a bit stubby, but its styling aspires to the larger Audi Q5 that is 10 inches longer. The 2017 Audi Q3 is in the third year of its generation. There are no significant changes for the 2017 Q3 lineup, though there are some trim-level revisions.

Its engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Q3 handles well but its priority is ride and comfort, more than crisp cornering. For a compact, its fuel mileage is unimpressive, with an EPA-estimated 20/29 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined.

Quattro all-wheel drive is available, or front-wheel drive. Fuel economy ratings are the same.

The Q3 rates top crash-test scores from the IIHS. A rearview camera and parking sensors are standard, while options include blind spot monitor and automatic park assist.


The 2017 Audi Q3 ($31,800) is the new base model, with 12-way power front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and LED running lamps and taillamps. The Premium Plus model adds heated folding mirrors and a power liftgate. The Prestige has a more premium audio system, navigation, blind-spot monitors in-car 4G LTE data services with Audi Connect, and Audi’s Multi-Media Interface. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Quattro all-wheel drive is available.


The Q3 has a tidy shape that will last a while, with a stance that’s more muscular than the A3 Sportback while not as settled as the bigger Q5, although it is two inches lower than the Q5. It looks and feels squatty and wide.

The low grille is braced by narrow headlamps and large air intakes. The sculpting at the sides climbs to a coupe-like roofline and back to a wraparound tailgate and LED taillamps that create a neat look from behind.


The Q3 seats five as long as the three passengers in the back seat are small; if they’re adults, two is more like it. The knee and head room in the rear is sparse. A panoramic sunroof is standard, which is nice but lowers the ceiling. Visibility isn’t great, with thick pillars and a small rear window.

Like the A3 sedan, the cabin is tasteful and detailed, if limited in its choices of trim and color. The dash is a broad stretch of soft black plastic trimmed by thin metallic rings. The gauges are big and clear, and on some models with infotainment, a 7.0-inch screen folds out from the dash. On others, it doesn’t stow away, with the MMI knob fixed on the center console. The screen offers a bright high-resolution display, especially vivid with the Google Earth maps.

The driving position is excellent, but the optional sport seats aren’t an option, they’re a must for their bolstering. The center console doesn’t crowd the driver’s right knee, as it does in many compacts.

Cargo space is good, with 16.7 cubic feet behind the rear seat, about the size of a big trunk. And with the rear seatbacks flipped, there’s a 48.2 cubic feet, way healthy for a compact.

Driving Impressions

The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is the same as used in the heavier Q5, so the Q3 is the crossover that makes the most of the engine’s 200 horsepower. Even the Q3 weighs 3500 pounds, no lightweight for a compact, so more horsepower here would be helpful. But the 207 pound-feet of torque comes on at a low 2000 rpm, so that helps make the Q3 reasonably quick and feel energetic. It will accelerate from zero to sixty in 7.8 seconds, or 8.2 seconds with all-wheel drive.

The 6-speed automatic transmission’s gears are well spaced, and shifts are confident, but we miss the DSG twin-clutch that Audi builds so well.

The road manners and ride quality are very good. With front struts and four links at the rear, it feels tidy and well damped around corners. And it has responsive electric power steering. But don’t expect track-like spirit in the twisties. We give the BMW X1 the edge in handling; however the Q3 rides better than the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class on bumpy city streets.


Audi Q3 is a nice vehicle, but fuel mileage of 23 miles per gallon combined with a mild 200 horsepower comes up short against the competition.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
