What's New for 2015

The 2015 Audi Q3 is an all-new small crossover.

Introduction

Building on the success of its midsize Q5, Audi will soon offer a smaller crossover with the 2015 Audi Q3. The Q3 will use a turbocharged four-cylinder engine matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0-liter engine is rated at 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque, which should deliver lively acceleration and enough low-end muscle for the cargo duties expected of a small SUV. Front-wheel drive will come standard, with all-wheel drive an available option.

The Q3 is nearly 10 inches shorter than the Q5, but will still offer a useful 48 cubic feet of cargo space with the 60/40-split rear seats folded down (16.2 cubes with the seats up). Two trim levels will be available: Premium Plus and Prestige. Standard equipment will include 18-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery and heated 12-way front seats. Sportier front seats, adjustable performance settings, a navigation system with 7-inch display, a 14-speaker Bose audio system and a power liftgate will be optional. Available safety features will include blind-spot monitoring, parking assist, a rearview camera and rear seat side airbags (side curtain airbags come standard).

The Q3 will also offer three driver-adjustable dynamic modes: Auto, Dynamic and Comfort. We drove a Q3 in Europe and found it unnecessarily firm in anything but its Comfort setting. While the SUV offers plenty of grip and suppresses body roll quite well, its speed-sensitive steering doesn't allow much road feel to come through. A more rugged A3 it is not.

The Q3 goes on sale this fall starting at $33,425 for the front-wheel-drive base model. All-wheel-drive models start at $35,525. That's within striking distance of the BMW X1 rear-drive model and probably not far off from forthcoming competitors like the Lexus NX 200t and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class. Check back for a full review of the 2015 Audi Q3, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
