The 2018 Audi Q3 is Honored at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show

The Four Rings moniker's luxury subcompact SUV earned a Women’s Choice award for overall reliability in the crossover category, taking home accolades for being a model of "agile performance" and "driver-centric technologies." So what made the 2018 Audi Q3 a hit at catering to the needs and expectations of women?

To be eligible, a subcompact crossover had to be available in the US between September 13 and November 2, 2017, have the status of a base trim for the 2018 model year, and have no mandatory or required recalls outstanding. What's more, Consumer Reports reliability scores factored in the rating mix, along with the quality of an SUV's standard vehicle warranty, among other elements. But in the end, it was standout 2018 Q3 features both under the hood and in-cabin that made the grade for the panel's expert reviewers.

For one, women loved our automaker's available quattro® all-wheel drive. The system optimizes turning and pulling power of the Q3 wheels with the strongest grip on the road or terrain, making the most of available traction and resulting in excellent handling performance. Plus, the available Audi side-assist system in the new 2018 Q3 made an impression, too. A concert of radar sensors and visual warnings come together in this bit of driver-assist technology to improve situational awareness, especially when it comes to keeping an eye on blind spots. Elements like standard parking system plus and an available rearview camera appealed for their abilities to detect objects in proximity during reverse and parking maneuvers. Factor in the favorites of standard heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and more than 48 cubic feet of space for cargo with rear seating folded, and it's plain to see how 2018 Audi Q3 delivers the whole package.
