2018 Q3 Exterior

For those who have never seen the Q3, but know what an Audi generally looks like, the Q3's styling would come at no surprise. It follows Audi's well-planned formula and can be seen as a natural progression, slotting in the Audi range with careful thought and calculation. The Q3 uses the familiar formula of using a shrunken down SUV styled body shape and making it fit on a subcompact frame, and in this case, it works pretty well but it does look more like a hatchback than a fully fledged crossover SUV. For 2018 Audi has reworked the front bumper slightly, and it goes a long way to make the 2018 model look as good as its younger contemporaries. The Q3 is a handsome little car, and looks fresh, despite being almost seven years old.

Compared to other premium subcompact crossovers, the Q3 follows suit; it's 172.8 inches long, about three inches longer than a Mini Cooper Countryman, but one inch shorter than a Mercedes GLA. The Q3 is 71 inches wide and has a wheelbase of 106.3 inches. These dimensions remind us that the Q3 is a small car, despite the macho lifted looks. Compared to the Mercedes GLA and Mini's Countryman (both in four-wheel drive spec), the Q3 is rather hefty, weighing in at 3,671 pounds, 261 pounds more than the Mini, and a considerable 243 pounds more than the GLA.
