Good value for money for a 1.4cc car that packs a reasonable amount of techs and punches above its weight.  Posted on 06 Oct 2020

Review
For SUVs, I previously owned the Harrier Turbo and Hyundai Tucson (1st Gen). Before deciding on the Audi Q3, I have also test driven the Merc GLA, BMW X1 (non-face lifted version), Citroen C5 Aircross and the Peugeot 3008 (1.6cc), among other SUVs.

On balance, the Audi Q3 suited me as it drives smoothly and handles well around curves, returns a reasonable fuel consumption - about 12km/L on 80% City and 20% Highway, and has a good road presence. For a 1.4cc Turbo engine, the car does not feel lacking in power to overtake or accelerate, when the need arises. The Q3 also has no body roll, and drives more like a sedan, in term of road stability. The Audi MMI and Virtual Cockpit Plus are responsive and are a treat to use.

My only wish is that the Q3 could have come standard with the wireless (Qi) charger pad, and the Audi Auto Parking feature.

What I like
Value for money
Good road handling & stability (though a tag firm but never jarring)
Not too big, and not too small
Reasonable fuel consumption for an SUV
Good road presence
Well-designed exterior and interior (with ambience lighting)
Up-to-date Infotainment and display system

What I do not like
Audi should have gone the whole hog, and provided the wireless (Qi) charge pad and Audi Auto Parking as standard.

Option for moon-roof would be nice.

17inch rims are lame for an otherwise well designed car.

Review
Nice compact SUV with loads of features . Good interior design, improved engine performance and handling .

What I like
Dashboard , MM1, audi cockpit , engine performance , driving position ,driver to car communication , smooth ride, ground handling , park assistance , internal cabin lighting .

What I do not like
Braking not very smooth as you brake down the slope , Turbo kicks in bit late seems there is a lag as you press on the gas. AC not tuned for tropical climate like Singapore , even if the temperature is set at 22 degree cooling not uniform .
