    On offer are four drive modes including an Auto mode that alter engine, gearbox and steering characteristics — Efficiency is okay for the rush-hour slog, Comfort is good for easy going while Dynamic does bring out the sportier side of the powertrain. As before, it is powered by a 2. The hp is front-wheel drive or quattro, the hp is quattro only: It shows an SUV-like ability to deal with bigger craters and potholes, while also remaining controlled and comfortable at speed.

    It remains a stylish, upmarket machine packing plenty of the kudos from the larger Q5 and Q7: What it does lack is some of the clout a Range Rover Evoque still carries, but competing with that car is a formidable task for any small SUV. It still packs a punch. The interior design of the Q3 shows its age more than the exterior.

    Even before you take in the dash design, it feels a bit unusual. The driver seems perched, pedals mounted a bit too close and at an odd angle, the steering wheel is also angled, all giving the feeling of tottering over the dashboard somewhat. There is, however, ample space there for front-seat occupants, and the seats both have ample adjustment and four-way electric lumbar support even on the base Sport.

    All Q3s get sports seats too, which are supportive and comfortable. The dashboard is, in the Audi style, impeccably well built. Both the stereo head unit and climate control system have far too many buttons, for example, and the infotainment screen looks on the small side. Instruments are more A1 than Q5 as well. In the rear, the Q3 still offers decent space. Three people is more of a squeeze, though. Those in the rear have their own ventilation outlets and can charge devices through a rear cabin 12v power socket.

    Be careful of the panoramic glass roof, though: Stats show the boot is litres with the seats up, which is OK but not significantly larger than cars such as an Audi A3. It is, however, an extremely well-planned space, with flat sides and square dimensions. Fold the seats and the boot extends to litres. All Audi Q3 have a 6. It has Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phones and the Audi Music Interface will allow you to control music on your Apple iPhone or iPod: Apple CarPlay is unavailable, though, and Audi sends its apologies to Android users, who are not so well served.

    Infotainment is another area the Q3 is showing its age a little; even the supplementary 3. You can upgrade a little, but only to a slightly larger 7in sat nav system using faster-processing hard disc navigation.

    Mapping is, however, 3D, and can be controlled using the Audi MMI system albeit from a dash controller rather than the more convenient console dial of other Audis. Coming as part of the optional Technology Pack, hard disc sat nav also includes a subscription to Audi Connect, whose many features include allowing you to access Google and Twitter within the car.

    Stick with regular models on normal inch wheels and the ride quality is impressive. It shows an SUV-like ability to deal with bigger craters and potholes, while also remaining controlled and comfortable at speed. Where things start to degenerate here is with S line models, which have inch wheels: Like most Audis, the Q3 has viceless handling. A BMW X1 is sharper and crisper, so feels more sporting.

    Audi no longer sells the RS Q3, an unlikely performance car; unlike other Q3, this was surprisingly entertaining. The Q3 has an impeccable range of engines. This hp motor is probably smoother than the hp 2. Diesel choice is a 2. The hp is front-wheel drive or quattro, the hp is quattro only: The diesel is as good here as in other Audis, and users should have no complaints about its power deliver, flexible nature and cruising refinement.

    Safety assist features are also rather scant. Audi also offers hill-hold assist and hill descent control as options; the former should really be standard and it would be nice if the latter were too, if only to pay token lip service to its off-road pretensions.
