2022 Audi Q3 Review: Specs and Pricing


Audi Q3

2022 Audi Q3: OVERVIEW


The 2022 Q3 is the smallest Audi SUV and shares a lot of similarities with its larger siblings in terms of appearance and experience. It has a luxurious exterior and a plethora of high-end materials and technological features in the more expensive Q5, Q7, and Q8 crossovers. A plethora of high-end materials, Of course, and some subtle cost-cutting measures are inside to keep expenses low.


The rear seat room isn't as generous. The Q3 makes up for it by having a somewhat more young atmosphere and a chassis that feels more nimble than the larger Audi SUVs, putting it on par with important competitors like the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-class.


What Has Changed For 2022?


For 2022, the lowest-priced Q3 model will come standard with new features like parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and new aluminum inside trim.


This year's version of the Convenience package is brand-new and comes with a built-in garage door opener, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, and eight-way power front seats with memory for the driver. Brown wood trim is now an option for the Premium model, while Premium Plus trims get a new 360-degree camera system.


2022 Audi Q3: Engine And Performance


Each Audi Q3 features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, yet they all produce varying amounts of power. Audi refers to the base configuration, which has 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, as 40 TFSI.

These numbers increase to 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque in the 45 TFSI S-Line variant. The 40 TFSI is generally acceptable and has a good amount of power for low-speed driving, although its acceleration is a little sluggish. Although there may be a slight suggestion of turbo lag, the 45 TFSI is more lively. Both systems have an eight-speed automatic transmission with occasionally jerky shifts.



2022 Audi Q3: Interior And Comfort


All of our criticisms about the previous model's cabin are addressed in the Q3's cabin, which features a significantly improved driving position, a more intuitive control arrangement, and higher-quality materials.

A panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats with eight-way power adjustments, and lumbar support for the driver are some of its notable standard features. Ambient interior lighting, a completely digital gauge cluster, and contrasting microsuede on the dashboard and doors are other opulent features.

Although the cabin is roomier than the previous model's, the back seat still doesn't have enough legroom to keep adults comfortable on lengthy drives. Six carry-on suitcases and an additional 12 pieces of luggage, when the back seats are lowered, fit in the cargo area. Both of those are less than what we can fit in the X1 but are comparable to the Jaguar E-Pace.


2022 Audi Q3: Connectivity


Most Q3 versions from Audi come with the 8.8-inch MMI infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The same information is also available on a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen. Because of its large icons and haptic feedback, we considered the interface to be appealing and generally simple to use.

Its low placement on the dashboard, nevertheless, can be annoying. Top features include a 15-speaker, 680-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system, wireless charging, and SiriusXM satellite radio.


2022 Audi Q3; Pricing


With a starting MSRP of $34,900, the entry-level Audi Q3 Premium is more reasonable than many high-end subcompact SUVs. That's impressive considering that Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive is included as standard; with competitors, AWD is frequently an expensive add-on. Starting at $38,200 is the range-topping Premium Plus model.


Which One To Purchase?


The Premium Plus trim is still the greatest deal in the Q3 portfolio even if it is the priciest variant. A wireless charging pad, blind-spot monitoring, passive entry with push-button start, LED headlamps, and adaptive cruise control are just a few of the attractive amenities that come with its reasonably priced price tag.

Additionally, the aforementioned Technology package, which makes the sexiest technological advancements available from Audi, is recommended. We'd also go with the 45 model, which is more potent.
