Audi Q3

The Audi Q3 small SUV has been a big success for Audi, as buyers across the automotive spectrum abandon sedans and hatchbacks in favour of high-riding SUVs. It’s not designed to carry sizeable loads, thanks in part to a swoopy coupe-esque roofline, but the Q3 is more about its front-seat passengers.

The five-seat Q3 can be had with 1.4-litre and 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engines as well as a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel, with prices ranging from $42,900 to $58,000 for the Q3 1.4 TFSI (110kW) and Q3 2.0 TDI Sport Quattro (135kW), respectively. While a front-wheel drive is offered, the majority of sales are for the all-wheel drive models.

Audi also offers a hot rod version known as the RS Q3, which sports the German brand’s awesome five-cylinder 2.5-litre turbo-petrol engine.
