The orange Alcantara package might be tempting, since Audi also offers Pulse Orange paint, or it could liven up a more conservative exterior color. But it does tend to reflect in the windshield. So make sure that won't become an irritation. We'd be happy with a regular Premium Plus model as long as we could add the Virtual Cockpit and B&O system. Find an Audi Q3 for sale

2019 BMW X1 -- A firm ride, but a fun drive. Plus a versatile, high-quality interior. Definitely look into this model.
2019 Mini Countryman -- Less cargo area than the Q3, although a sliding rear seat means useful passenger space for adults. Quite fun as well.
