Audi Q3 Leasing
Audi’s Q3 offers a premium-badged alternative to mid-sized Qashqai-class SUVs from the volume brands.
Audi is targeting the growing market for compact five-seat Crossovers with its stylish little Q3. This car’s now cleverer, smarter and more efficient, making an Audi Q3 lease a potentially tempting option. All of these are attributes that this car will need if it’s to make headway in this increasingly crowded segment. When it comes to this kind of car, there are certainly cheaper options. The question though, is whether there are really any more desirable ones.
Why Would You Want One?
Audi knows better than most manufacturers that there's never a one-size-fits-all solution to modern motoring, hence the range of options offered by its various Q-series models. This one could well be all the car you actually need and it comes with very competitive Audi Q3 finance options. Don’t think of it as a shrunken version of its Q5 compact SUV stablemate. It isn’t really any kind of SUV, instead offering a smarter, more up-market take on the current trend towards lifestyle-orientated Qashqai-class five-seat Crossovers. Sensible, stylish, fashionable cars that are striking such a sweet spot in the current market.
Give Me the Key Details...
Space inside provides room for five occupants, plus there’s 420-litres of luggage capacity up to the parcel shelf and a maximum of 1,325-litres with all the seats folded. The seats don't tumble flat to the floor but you do get a retractable luggage cover and in top versions, there's a powered tailgate. Interior materials quality still shames every other comparable vehicle.
If you’re looking at Audi Q3 finance deals, you’ll first need to make your choice beneath the bonnet. Engine-wise, there’s a choice of 1.4 or 2.0 TFSI petrol engines, the latter also used in the manic 340PS RS Q3 model that tops the range. The Audi ‘drive select’ adaptive dynamics system is fitted as standard and enables the driver to make adjustments to steering, throttle response and (on S tronic auto models) to gearchange timings.
The Bottom Line
As with almost any model of this kind, this one can easily manage the school run, an extended shopping trip, a weekend away or the annual family ski trip to Chamonix. The difference here though, lies in the quality, the depth of engineering and the sheer feel-good factor that you’ll get by having this Q3 on your driveway.
Compromises necessary to create its relatively affordable price tag have been cleverly chosen and detract little from the extremely polished end result. One that in this improved first generation guise delivers on its promises of greater efficiency and extra technology. It’s a little sharper to drive too, though could still be more responsive in that respect. Ultimately though, this Audi’s priorities lie in other areas. Yes, you can certainly buy something slightly bigger and SUV-ish for this kind of money. But after trying a Q3, you probably won’t want to.
