5 reasons to buy the 2020 Audi Q3

1. Practical performance

Audi Q3: Engine | CarMax

If you love the rush of a sports sedan but also value comfort and interior versatility, the 2020 Audi Q3 provides a great middle ground. Under its right-sized sport utility proportions is a 228-hp 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers ample power for commuting or enjoying a night on the town. The engine connects to an eight-speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly under normal driving conditions, or you can customize the vehicle's steering feel and throttle responses by selecting a sportier drive mode. With its agile body and compact exterior design, the Q3 moves with poise when faced with twisty roads and rush-hour congestion.

2. Standard all-wheel drive

Transitioning from the city to the slopes is a seamless experience in the Q3. All 2020 models come standard with Audi's Quattro® all-wheel drive system, which is designed to detect a loss of traction and respond by distributing power to the wheels for better grip. Even if you're not an outdoor enthusiast, you'll love how skilled this all-wheel drive system will make you feel as you navigate through bad weather or over poorly maintained roads.

3. Comfortable cabin

4. Configurable cargo space

The 2020 Audi Q3's 40/20/40 split-folding, sliding, and reclining rear seats provide the freedom to transport what you need inside the vehicle. With all seats in place, there's 23.7 cubic feet of cargo volume to carry groceries or luggage for a weekend getaway, and folding the rear row expands capacity to 48 cubic feet. The rear cargo area can also be reconfigured to make room for taller items, like houseplants from the garden center. All 2020 models come standard with a power tailgate, which makes loading the Q3 very efficient, especially when your hands are full.

5. Advanced technology

The basis of the 2020 Q3's infotainment system is an 8.8-inch MMI touchscreen (Premium and Premium Plus trims), which connects you to your most-used apps using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. If you choose the Prestige trim, you'll enjoy a 10.1-inch MMI touchscreen with navigation that uses handwriting recognition to make it easier to enter information, like finding the nearest gas station or coffee shop. Wireless charging keeps your devices powered as you commute between meetings (Premium Plus and Prestige trims), while a standard rearview camera can make you feel like an expert parallel parker. Automatic high-beam headlights and automated emergency braking round out the 2020 Q3's standard driver-assistance features.
