What do you think of the new Q3?

Post by trjim2k5 » Wed Aug 01, 2018 9:08 am

I have to admit that it's a good looking car and will probably be the most serious competition for the XC40. I'm trying to convince myself that the XC40 looks nicer :D

Thoughts?

No comparison. XC40 all the way :-)

Doesn't look much different to the old one to me.
Like so many, it looks like a raised up hatchback which is why I think they got it right with the design of XC40.

A hideous box of bling on wheels that will probably turn into an unreliable box of rattles like my last (and only!) Audi.

As previously mentioned it looks like a raised up hatchback. The boot taper makes it difficult to fit my dog in the back which is one of the reasons I got the xc40 and not another hatchback

Doesn't look much better than the old one, so it'll probably age badly too. I looked at the old one (1yr old second hand) 6mths ago and decided they were looking old already then. Glad I got the XC . . I did blow that original budget massively though :p

Plus how much does a like for like config cost? I bet it's a few k more than the equivalent XC40.

I would have to disagree with you all, (still prefer the XC40) but the New Q3 is a good looking car and a big improvement from the current generation which seemed outdated right from the start. I also think it will be the XC40's toughest competition, but as mentioned for a comparatively spec'ed Q3 I sure you will be paying a lot more for it!

It’s an improvement over the VERY old outgoing one, but not to my taste at all. Trying too hard to stand out, and fails. Someone put the Q7 on the photocopier, and press the 50% reduce button!
