2019 Audi Q3 is "Everything You Would Expect from Audi:" Kelley Blue Book

Our brand's iconic subcompact luxury crossover SUV is back, all-new for the model year, and it's already getting attention from the experts.

Sure, it's larger, with more room for both people and cargo, owing to a wheelbase that's 3 inches longer and up to 48.0 cubic feet for luggage available with its seven-stage 40/20/40-split rear seats folded. It's also more powerful, now incorporating a turbocharged 2.0-liter I4 capable of 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque at rpm as low as 1,700. It even comes standard with more features than many competitors, from quattro all-wheel drive and a panoramic sunroof to a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, 8.8-inch MMI touch infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and more. But what did the research and valuation authority have to say about the 2019 Audi Q3 redesign?

For one, the writer of the latest KBB Expert Review was quick to applaud an interior with "everything you'd want," plenty of leg and head room, a right-sized cargo area," "a mix of beautiful style" with "a wide array of technology features" and "Audi quality and trademark good looks." Secondly, they continued, its handling is "light and accurate," doing an "admirable job of balancing performance and comfort." In short, they summarized, "nothing feels entry-level."

There's much more where these accolades came from. 2019 Audi Q3 also gets edges on both the Ultimate Driving Machine's small luxury crossover, BMW X1, and the three-point star's premium SUV foray, Mercedes-Benz GLA, among others.
