I am changing from the Q3 to the XC40, it will be more expensive than the XC40 and not so well equipped as standard, plus you will have a similar wait as with the XC40.
Have had my fill of the VW/Audi brand after eleven years with them.

Don't think much to it to be honest, the styling seems a bit lazy. Nothing special about it.

For me it's the interior, it's where you sit and interact with all the time, you don't really see the outside of your car when driving. Of course it helps if it doesn't look like a Lada though. :)

When I tried the (old) Q3 back in January when shopping for a car, I was not impressed with the quality or layout of the interior - it tries too hard to remain a car inside too.

It is unquestionably a better looking and more modern car than the current Q3, one cannot argue against that. It will be very interesting to see the comparison reviews when they arrive, it clearly is designed to match the XC40 - let's see if it does.

The comments around spec will probably ring true, to bring it to the correct comparison level....

Going by the pictures, the length in the relation to the height makes it look like a raised estate from some angles, an affliction which blighted the original X1. That being said, naff, oversized cheap looking grille aside, it's a good looking motor, if a little "busy' in places, both inside and out. I'd have to see the Q3 in the flesh, but the XC40 seems to be the cleaner, more striking design.

i find it a big improvement on the old Q3. the design is much more balanced and it looks like a stylish premium vehicle. If specced with the electronic cockpit the interior is simply beautiful. Yes i see this as a serious competitor to the Xc40. Would i go for one? propably not as in my opinion the XC is more individual like nothing else on the road with influences of the defender and skoda yeti. The audi looks like a good executed compact audi and that does not do it for me. Will sell like hot cakes though..
