Given the popularity of luxury compact SUVs, it was just a matter of time before Audi sent its latest, the Q3, our way. Although it has been available in Europe since 2011, it’s relatively new in our market. Based on the MQB architecture, the same as the Volkswagen Golf, the Q3 gets quattro all-wheel drive—except in the base version, which comes with a front-wheel drivetrain. The Q3’s engine is a 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0L four cylinder.
