Audi will introduce a new version of the Q3, a luxury SUV, and the Q5, a compact crossover, in 2021. Audi’s passion for new technologies and its commitment to customers shine through, as the interiors have impressive devices and these vehicles are fun to drive. If you want a car that combines athleticism and elegance, Audi is the perfect choice.
The Q3 will sell for $ 36,000 and the Q3 Premium Plus will sell for $ 39,300. While the Premium version offers adjustable front seats and lane departure notifications, the Premium Plus is worth the upgrade: this model has blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control. Q5 will start at $ 43,000. Sure, that’s an obvious price change, but there’s a reason the Q5 is more expensive – the Q5 is like the big brother to the Q3. Its cutting-edge features make the car more experienced for driving out of town.
Here’s an overview of the features of both the Q3 and the Q5. They are both unapologetic about luxury and comfort. But it also depends on what the consumer wants. The Q3 suits drivers who want a car that can safely drive around town, while the Q5 appeals to adventure seekers who want to test the car’s performance.
You can count on Audi to fit its distinctive grille and LED headlights on both the Q3 and Q5. However, the Q5 outperforms the Q3 in the exterior department because it has a sportier look: the Q5 has a pronounced arc, is closer to the ground, and has a wider grille than the Q3. The Q3 has nine exterior colors. This car competes with the BMW X1, Cadillac XT4, Volvo XC40 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-class.
On the other hand, the Q5 has seven exterior colors. The colors are not flashy: the Q5 offers the standard colors of blue, black, white and green. Bold colors like red or orange are not available. The Q5’s main competitors are the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Acura RDX, Lexus NX, and Volvo XC60. Audi will also debut the 2021 Q5 Sportback, a car with athletic lines that mirror the Q8. The Sportback contenders are the BMW X4, the Mercedes-Benz GLC-class coupe and the Infiniti QX55.
The Q3 seats five passengers. There are heated leather front seats, but rear-seat comfort is simply non-existent. While children may not have a problem, adults will feel cramped when they sit in the second row. The BMW X1 is bigger.
In terms of design, drivers can choose between four-seat colors and three accent inlays for the Q3.
The Q5 has roomier rear seats. The car has four seat color options and two accent inlays. The Q5 Sportback has standard all-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The power of the Q3 is 228 and the car has a four-cylinder engine. There is an eight-speed automatic transmission and the Q3 is all-wheel drive. But Audi’s beloved SUV suffers from turbo lag, as owners experience a holdup by pressing the gas pedal. The engine does not react immediately.
The Q5 has more power, as the number is 261. According to MotorTrend, the Q5 is a four-wheel drive car that is equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission.
Equipment on board:
Both the Q3 and Q5 have advanced technologies that will appeal to drivers. The Q3 comes with an 8.8-inch touchscreen and a navigation system. Car and Driver reports that the Q3 also has a Bang & Olufsen audio system, the master son of a Danish company that specializes in luxury goods. Wireless charging and a Sirius XM satellite radio are available.

A negative feature of the Q3 is the low location of the touchscreen. Text can be distracting and annoying while driving.
One of the most notable features of both cars is the virtual cockpit. Drivers can see directions and Google Earth on the screen right behind the wheel.
The characteristics of the Q5 are even more impressive than those of the Q3. The car has a 10.1-inch touchscreen with a simple design.
