The Q3 was made for the suburban lifestyle conscious people, who want a fun drive but, but with great looks as well. Indeed the Q3 was designed as a crossover coupé, and the final touches on the body design show this.
Based on the same platform as the Volkswagen Tiguan, the Q3 doesn’t borrow as much from the standard PQ35 platform as I had thought. While the 2-liter turbo is sourced from the Golf GTI, mostly everything else is quintessential Audi. Our tester came with the S-line exterior package, which, while adding to the price tag heavily, gives the Q3 an even sportier look.
On the front we have some very sharp looking headlights, especially with the angular daylight running LEDs. The entire fascia is huge and chunky, thanks to the wide and long grill, with the lower lip and fog lamps completing the front look. The front is kind of a mixed bag because it actually reminds me of the older generation Audi curves and massive grills mashed up with current-gen lights and angular trims.
Moving to the side we see the 19-inch alloy wheels, with a sloping roofline towards the end. The Q3 looks rather unremarkable from the sides.
Towards the back we see the similarly sharp looking LEDs as we see in the front, with the stretching rear glass and lower lip extending from the bumper complementing the overall elegant looks of the Q3.
