Compare 2021 Audi Q3 vs the Competition

A Sophisticated Blend of Style and Engineering - See How the 2021 Audi Q3 Stacks Up Against the Competition

It's not your imagination. SUVs and crossovers do seem to be getting smaller and smaller these days. From Boston to Providence, more and more drivers are gravitating towards compact vehicles that blend the style and practicality of an SUV with the easy-to-park size of a compact car. At Mattie Audi in Fall River, where we proudly carry the full collection of world-class Audi models, we know that many of our customers appreciate the compact SUV design, and we're excited to introduce you to one of the best options around, the 2021 Audi Q3.

A continuation of the model's second generation, the Audi Q3 has a lot to offer. It's a five-passenger, two-row crossover that's crafted with the meticulous attention to detail that the Audi brand name is known for, and it comes with the latest features our customers are looking for.

If you're in the market for a luxury compact crossover of your own, but one of those other models from a competing brand name is vying for your attention, read on to learn more about the Q3 and what sets it apart from similarly sized styles.

The Audi Q3 vs. the BMW X1

  • Standard features. For comfort and tech, when you want a lot of features on your high-end SUV, the Audi Q3 is the way to go. Every Q3 trim level gets standard heated seats, a panoramic sunroof, and leather upholstery. Meanwhile, the BMW X1 doesn't have any of these amenities standard and, instead, has them listed as options that are available in packages or upper trims.
  • Power and performance. Both SUVs get similar 228-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engines under their hoods. But, while the BMW X1 only makes all-wheel drive available as an option, the Audi Q3 has it as a standard feature, making it the perfect vehicle for drivers here in the northeast who need to navigate flying snow and ice part of the year.
  • Size and space. Both SUVs have similar measurements in several areas. However, the Audi Q3 measures a little wider, taller, and longer than the BMW, and it has both a taller ground clearance and a wider wheelbase. This helps the Audi deliver a ride that's smooth and even every time, and it allows for a little more wiggle room on the inside for you and your passengers.

The Audi Q3 vs. the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class SUV

  • Cargo space. Expect more of what you need when you shop for the Audi Q3 over the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class SUV, especially in interior space. From golf clubs to suitcases, the Q3 can tote more of your important stuff than the GLA model, thanks to its cargo hold that accommodates more than 23 cubic feet. The Mercedes-Benz, meanwhile, has a cargo hold that accommodates just 15.4 cubic feet.
  • Features and amenities. Audi knows that drivers want the latest features and tech amenities, and the Q3 delivers. Leather upholstery, smartphone integration, heated seats, a sunroof, these are all just some of the standard features for the Q3, while many of them are available only as options on the Mercedes-Benz SUV model.
  • Standard power. Right out of the gate, the Audi Q3 has more power than the GLA. Both lineups start with a turbo four-cylinder, but the Audi base engine packs 228 horsepower, compared to the Mercedes-Benz base output of 221 horsepower.
