    Hmmm. Now that’s interesting. Another car to add to our list to look at when we change in Q1.  The Q3 was on the list when we last ordered, but we discounted it as it felt very small and cramped compared to the Tiguan that we went for. No doubting that it’s a better quality car though. Shame that it’s only available with fairly low capacity engines, but it’s a small car so should probably be adequate. Shame also that to get the 4WD auto you can’t have the S-Line and have to have a Sport instead. Maybe the choice may widen in Q1 (unless Motability’s illogical price caps rule them out)?

    Yes, it’s certainly nice to have the choice. A few years ago Motability really slashed the choice of decent cars available on the scheme and it’s encouraging to see that a number of them, such as the Q3 and BMW 3 Series, are returning. Whilst I don’t agree with price caps (as ALL additional costs of more expensive cars could simply be covered by bigger AP’s for those prepared to pay them), I am hoping that they raise them in January, as they’ve been stuck at the same prices for a few years now.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>The Q3 was probably the smoothest car Iv drove and felt safest in during all my motoring years but the X1 suits my needs very nicely although I have had to add some extras. I’m quite tempted to test drive a Q3….I think the price caps can limit options for many users but I also hope they raise them in the near future.</p>

    Yes, Audi! I’ve only sat inside the Q3 and liked its seat position height and loved how the cabin felt cosy. I still recall the amount of people asking on the homepage when this vehicle will come back on the scheme. But I have a feeling it may be withdrawn next quarter.

    What makes you think that it might be withdrawn next quarter? Whilst there appears to be no rhyme nor reason as to why cars come and go from the scheme, it would be very odd to add a new car and then withdraw it a few weeks later, especially as those few weeks contain the Christmas break when very few people will be ordering cars. It would be a lot of work for nothing. The BMW X1 is a very popular car on the scheme, so it’s no surprise that, in an increasingly competitive market, Audi would want its direct competitor on the scheme.

    Yes it does Mike. I’ve got the full spec off the Audi website and the Sport is pretty well equipped. Highlights;

    LED Headlights

    Power tailgate

    Audis excellent MMI Navigaton Plus

    Audis equally excellent Virtual Cockpit

    Lane Departure Warning

    Negatives are cloth seats, standard cruise (not adaptive), ugly wheels (but nicer ones for £150 more) and only black seats, so interior rather drab.

    S-Line mostly adds styling details, but the wheels are better and it has privacy glass and ambient lighting. I wouldn’t like the sport suspension though (Sport model has standard suspension).

    Those APs are very good.

    @Glos Guy, I think you can order an S Line with comfort suspension at no cost, certainly used to be the case.

    I don’t know why, Glos Guy. I haven’t got a logical response or answer to your question but something tell me it won’t be around for too long. Nonetheless, I’m very happy it’s here!

    I guess mobility are adding cars like this back onto the scheme because there are a glut of them that dealerships need to shift, as more people want hybrid, plug in and EVs.   I do think this will drive down prices every year until the 2030 Electric switch over.

    Going for a test drive tomorrow for Audi  Q3 1.5 petrol Sline. Hope to order after, as my local dealership says that demand is very high, he would say that would’t he!

    I test drive the VW Tiguan eligance and liked the engine and ride but was not impressed inside, i am sure Audi will beat it and looks like it will be same price, so hopefully a no brainer.

    I shall be extremely interested to hear your feedback. We have both those cars on our shortlist. We loved the interior of the Q3 when we looked at it last time but had to discount it as it felt so much smaller inside than the Tiguan. The new Q3 is an inch shorter than the Tiguan, two and a half inches lower and the boot is 530 litres versus 615 in the Tiguan, but the new Tiguan has a dropped boot floor that would make loading my wife’s wheelchair in and out quite difficult and rectifying that (with a spare wheel, which raises the floor) might make them more comparable.

    No, not a 2 hour lest drive, happy to give feedback on here tommorow.

    The Q3’Black Edition’ may come on the scheme this week.

    Newbie here,

    hello everyone and hope all is well. What are your thoughts on the new Audi Q3 sportsback ? Will it be added soon? If so what trims ? AP prices higher or lower than Q3 estate?

    All of those, bar the 3008, are on our shortlist too. I have a horrible feeling that they will all be too small for us and we will end up with yet another ruddy Tiguan 😂 Looking forward to the new year when we can go and look at them in the flesh. My first choice, by a mile, is the BMW 3 Series Touring, but access may be problematic for my wife and it may have to be discounted on that basis.

    Anyone know how much it would be to add leather electric memory seats please. I guess part of a pack for about £1500.

    From Whatcar

    “The Audi Q3 is practical, has plenty of tech and is decent to drive. However, the Range Rover Evoque and Volvo XC40 are both classier inside, more comfortable and, ultimately, are better all-rounders.”

    Thanks for posting the video Brydo. It does rather confirm that the Tiguan is noticeably bigger in the dimensions that would matter most to us. Shame it only shows boot capacity rather them dimensions, as that’s the really critical one for us due to my wife’s wheelchair. The Range Rover Evoque would be a nice addition. It nearly made it on to Motability a few years back (albeit in poverty spec only) but the decision was reversed at the very last minute (you probably remember that as I think we discussed it). I drove one years ago and wasn’t impressed with it at all, but they’ve changed it since and it does look a beauty.
