The 2020 Audi Q3 is a fun and nippy little SUV, with a modern and stylish interior. As far as small SUVs go, it is a good looking car that has a feel of quality about it. But do you really want that beautiful white leather interior trashed by kids?!
The media system in the Audi Q3 is excellent, it is easy to connect your phone to wirelessly and use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
There is also a little touchpad you can write out the name of the person you want to phone which my daughter found good fun!
The system will also announce if you have left your phone in the car as you are getting out which was also a little fun but may be annoying if you are trying to transfer a sleeping child!
The camera has great image quality in the Q3 and is easy to mute the parking sensors and change the camera view along the bottom of the screen.
This little five-seater SUV fitted two child seats. I think if you bought slimline child seats and test them first you could possibly get three across. It was so close when I was testing but with the child seats I have, only two would fit; one in each of the outer seats.
There are ISOfix points in the two outer rear seats and top tether anchorages across the back of all three rear seatbacks. Legroom is definitely a consideration in the Q3, we found as a family of three, with a forward-facing child seat we could only just comfortably sit a 182cm passenger in front of them. With a rear-facing child seat behind the driver's seat there was only room for about a 170cm driver.
There is great storage in the front of the Q3, with a good-sized glovebox, cordless phone charging well and door bins will hold a large refillable water bottle.
In the back storage is minimal with no map pockets but small storage trays beside the seats instead.
There are air vents in the back of the central console box so the rear passengers can stay cool as well.
All sizes of stroller fitted in the boot too with a little space for bags, which was surprising too.
One of my favourite features of the Audi Q3 is the automatic unlock doors, so I don't have to fumble around for my keys in my bag, I can keep my hands free to can my daughter and all her stuff!
The Audi Q3 is a fun and nippy little car to drive, that feels solid and sturdy on the road which you often don't feel in cars of this size.
The Audi Q3 has been given a five-star ANCAP Safety Rating, scoring 88% for child occupancy rating and 95% for adult occupancy.
Six airbags come as standard in the Audi Q3 and the rear outer passengers have side curtain head airbags.
