Audi RS Q3 Interior

Premium performance feels like the dominant theme inside with a typically Audi  tech-focused approach including high-quality brushed metal elements, matt carbon inserts and quilted leather trim on the heavily bolstered front seats. A meticulous attention to detail is obvious and the bottom line is it’s all about the driver. A grippy, flat-bottom, leather-trimmed steering wheel looks as good as it feels, sleek screens enhance the racy vibe and the mix of physical and digital controls is sensible.

Audi RS Q3 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Audi RS Q3 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • How can Audi replace the 'Megatronics' unit in my 2012 Audi Q3 Quattro?

    It is a six-year-old car and things can go wrong with them, no matter the price tag when it was new. All carmakers have a responsibility under law even after their own warranties have expired, so you could try and negotiate a deal with them over the unit, but I doubt you’ll succeed.

  • Audi RS Q3 or BMW 135i, which is more fun?

    That's a rather subjective question that's almost impossible to answer. It also depends on what you call fun. Both would be fun to drive, but if I were to make the choice purely on the driving experience I would choose the BMW.

  • Should I buy a Audi Q3 or Mazda CX-5 for my retirement?

    You should never just buy a badge. The CX-5 is a better car, and considerably better value, than the Audi Q3. It's best in the class, gets The Tick from me, and is far better value than many prestige SUVs.
