Why Lease The Q3?
In a world of small crossover vehicles populated by such luminaries as the Nissan Qashqai, BMW X1, Range Rover Evoque, MINI Countryman and Volkswagen Tiguan, the Audi Q3 certainly hold its own.
Looking a little different from many other Audi models, it maintains the Audi reputation for classy interiors, with available space certainly a surprise.
There are three trim levels with the Audi Q3 - SE, S line and S line Plus - as well as a more aggressive looking (and performing) Q3 RS model, with all models being well equipped as standard with automatic wipers and lights, rear parking sensors, and dual-zone climate control to name but a few of the highlights.
With the RS version at top-of-the-shop, Audi Q3 performance is certainly competitive, with a fuel economy of just over 54 mpg available with the 138bhp 2.0-litre diesel version, closely followed by the 175bhp 2.0-litre diesel model with only a slightly weaker mpg. Two petrol engines are also available.
Audi Q3 Key Features
• Excellent interior comfort and specification
• Good choice of petrol and diesel engines and transmissions
• Excellent MPG for an SUV as high as 54mpg
• Agile, powerful and fun to drive
• Generous standard specifications
Power & Performance
The 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine in the Audi Q3 is the more economical of the two petrol engines, the other being a 2.0-litre with four-wheel drive; the former capable of 47.9mpg and the latter 36.7mpg.
The diesel engines on the Q3 are more efficient and more powerful with not much to choose between the 138bhp 2.0-litre diesel and the 175bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel, with the latter capable of a little extra power thanks to the turbo.
0-62mph acceleration is good across the entire Q3 range, with the Q3 RS excelling with a 5.5 seconds performance - but if its motorway comfort and quietness you want, it's the Q3 2.0-litre that you want.
Leasing vs Buying
If you want low initial payments, fixed monthly instalments and flexible contract terms, then leasing is a great alternative to buying a brand new car. With a huge range of vehicles at competitive lease rates here at Nationwide, all cars come with inclusive road tax, breakdown recovery and a change of car every 2-3 years.
