2022 Q3: Design
The smallest SUV at Audi, the all-new 2022 Q3 is also the most affordable. Having been named Best Subcompact Luxury SUV of 2021 by The Car Guide’s automotive journalists, there’s a good chance the new Audi Q3 will repeat that feat for its new vintage. Powerful, refined and spacious, this premium subcompact SUV is unequivocally one of the sexiest in this class. One of the great things about small SUVs is being able to drive anywhere on the streets of Montreal or Laval and never feel cramped, and if you can do it with style and grace, even better. Whether in tight parking spaces, narrow streets or boulevards decked out with orange cones, it slips in and out with agility and finesse.
With regard to its exterior, this Audi luxury subcompact SUV looks sensational with its octagonal single-frame grille and eight vertical bars, nicely rounded wings, five styles of wheels from 18 to 20 inches, air intakes and new headlights, not to mention an 11-shade menu, so expect envious glances everywhere you go.
Prices and technical attributes of each Audi SUV trim level
