The 2021 Audi Q3 is one of the top-ranking luxury subcompact SUVs on the market. The sharp vehicle blends a powerful engine with sleek handling and a comfortable interior packed full of intuitive tech features.

Drivers in Binghamton, Corning, and Ithaca can find out about the new Q3 with this 2021 Audi Q3 review from Audi Ithaca.

Q3 Interior Comfort and Space

The Q3 boasts a stylish interior with seating for up to five people with supple leather upholstery and heavily bolstered seats. Heated, power-adjustable seating is standard, but you can get front sport seats as optional additions for more side support. All passengers enjoy ample head and legroom in the front and back seats. The rear seats also slide and recline for more passenger comfort.

With the seats up, the Q3 has 23.7 cubic feet of space for cargo, which expands to 48 cubic feet with the seats folded down. You'll have plenty of space for luggage, sports equipment, or golf clubs. The Q3 also offers a hands-free power liftgate for convenient loading and unloading with the swipe of a foot.

Technology and Safety

The Q3 comes with an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that uses a combination of virtual buttons and physical controls in helpful places for audio and climate control while driving. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration are included, giving you the option to stream music and other media through the car's system on your drive. The system is known for its responsive and intuitive layout that's easy to learn and use. Other standard features include HD Radio™ and a 10-speaker stereo system, though navigation, satellite radio, wireless device charging, and premium audio are available.

For safety, the Q3 includes Audi pre sense® basic, a feature that rolls up windows and tightens seat belts in the event of a collision, and Audi pre sense® front, which features forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking to detect front crashes and apply the brakes. Optional upgrades include rear and front parking sensors, park assist, and traffic sign recognition, which reads traffic signs and alerts you to changes in traffic patterns.

Audi Q3 Performance

The Q3 comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired to a slick eight-speed automatic transmission. It has plenty of boost for driving around town and merging and passing on the highway.

The ride is athletic and smooth, even over rough pavement, and you can adjust the throttle response and suspension with a range of drive modes. Audi quattro all-wheel drive is standard to tackle inclement weather situations.
