Overview

What's New in the 2018 Audi Q3?

Last year's top Prestige trim level has been discontinued for 2018, resulting in a redistribution of some standard features, while others are made available as options.See the 2018 Audi Q3 models for sale near you

Which Q3 is the Best?

The Premium Plus trim looks a lot more attractive now it has some extra equipment. But there's no escaping the Q3's advancing years. If time is pressing, negotiate hard for this model year. If not, why not wait and see what the 2019 model year brings?

How Much Does a 2018 Audi Q3 Cost?

The 2018 Audi Q3 is sold in Premium and Premium Plus trim levels. All-wheel drive is a $2,100 option.

The Premium ($33,875) comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, automatic xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, rain-sensing wipers, heated windshield-washer nozzles, aluminum roof rails, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel, LED ambient cabin lighting, leather seating surfaces, 12-way power-adjustable front seats with heating, dual-zone automatic climate control, 60/40-split folding rear seats with a center pass-through, parking sensors front and rear, a 130-degree rearview camera, a monochromatic trip computer, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and a 10-speaker audio system with iPod connectivity, an SD card slot, a USB charging port, satellite radio and HD Radio.

The Premium trim is eligible for the Convenience options bundle, which includes a powered tailgate with adjustable opening heights, aluminum cabin trim, keyless entry/ignition and a self-dimming rearview mirror with a digital compass.

The Premium Plus ($36,775) has the above bundle as standard while adding fog lights, heated/power-folding mirrors (self-dimming on the driver's side), LED headlights, Side Assist (which warns users of any approaching hazards when they open the doors) and blind spot monitoring.

An optional Sport package includes 19-in alloy wheels, Audi Drive Select (providing adjustable drive modes with specific steering, throttle and transmission calibrations), a 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles, and sport front seats.

The Audi MMI Navigation Plus package brings, unsurprisingly, navigation (voice-controlled), along with Audi Connect (including Wi-Fi, Google Earth maps and Google Points of Interest search) and a color trip computer.

Is the 2018 Audi Q3 a Safe Car?

The Q3 comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability control, hill-descent control and six airbags (front, front-side and full-length side-curtain). Optional features include blind spot monitoring.

Due to its older design, the Q3 lacks cutting-edge features such as adaptive cruise control, forward-collision mitigation or lane-keeping assistance.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the Q3 its top score of Good in all major crash-test categories.

Competition

2018 Audi Q3 vs the competition

2018 BMW X1 -- A firm ride, but a fun drive. Plus a versatile, high-quality interior. Definitely look into this model.

2018 Lexus NX 300 -- Like the best-selling RX, only smaller.

2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class -- A sportier drive than the Q3, but interior materials aren't as good. Slightly updated for 2018.

2018 Mini Countryman -- Less cargo space than the Q3, although a sliding rear seat means adults can ride back there. More fun as well.

Used Audi Q5 -- A clean, certified pre-owned (CPO) Q5 will cost about the same as a brand-new Q3. As long as the larger size is not intimidating, you'll like the better features and capabilities.
